Outsourcing And Cloud Computing

  1. 1. Implementing Outsourcing Effectively Within the Context of Cloud Computing (And More Generally) Alan McSweeney
  2. 2. Objectives • Describe a structured approach to implementing outsourcing from both service provider and end-user organisation perspective in the context of cloud computing (and more generally) March 28, 2010 2
  3. 3. Agenda • Introduction • Outsourcing for Service Providers • Outsourcing for End-User Organisations March 28, 2010 3
  4. 4. Introduction March 28, 2010 4
  5. 5. Scope • In the context of cloud computing, the scope of this material is related to Public Cloud, a shared infrastructure, elements of which may or may not be dedicated, located away from the organisation’s premises accessible to other organisations and with multiple tenants • Moving systems/applications/data to a service provider, in whatever format, constitutes outsourcing/managed service − IaaS - Infrastructure as a Service − PaaS - Platform as a Service − SaaS - Software as a Service − STaaS - Storage as a Service − BRaaS - Backup and recovery as a Service • The business relationship needs to be managed as an outsourcing/managed services arrangement • Failure to do so will lead to problems • Cloud computing is not just a technology arrangement – it is a business services relationship • Do not ignore or underestimate the business nature of the relationship March 28, 2010 5
  6. 6. Types of Outsourcing and Types of Cloud-Based Services • Rough classification of types of public cloud-based services and types of outsourcing/managed services Business Process Knowledge Application Network Infrastructure Outsourcing (BPO) Process Service Provider Managed Services Managed Services Outsourcing (KPO) (ASP) IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) PaaS (Platform as a Service) SaaS (Software as a Service) STaaS (Storage as a Service) BRaaS (Backup and recovery as a Service) March 28, 2010 6
  7. 7. What is Outsourcing • Outsourcing is delegating the responsibility for performing an information technology or business function to a third party • You outsource because the outsourcing supplier will do: − What the organisation currently does − At the same or better level of performance − For the same or lower price March 28, 2010 7
  8. 8. Reasons Organisations Outsource Reduce And Control Operating 17% Costs Improve Company Focus 16% Gain Access To World-Class 12% Capabilities Free Resources For Other 12% Purposes Resources Not Available 8% Internally Reduce Time To Market 6% Take Advantage Of 6% Capabilities Accelerate Reengineering 4% Benefits Share Risks 3% Function Difficult To Manage 3% Or Out Of Control March 28, 2010 8
  9. 9. Scope • Not concerned with the advantages, disadvantages, merits, demerits, rights, wrongs of outsourcing • Concerned with outlining a structure that will enable you to get the relationship right, either as a service provider or an end-user • Describe a generalised approach that can be modified to suit requirements of type of outsourcing and of both service providers and client organisations • Migrating applications to a public/virtual private cloud no different from any other outsourcing arrangement • Non-technology issues – people, process and management - dominate • No reason to believe that public cloud implementation will be different from that of other outsourcing experiences March 28, 2010 9
  10. 10. Scope • Not exclusively concerned with public cloud-based services as outsourcing − General notes on all forms of outsourcing • Provide a common language for outsourcing organisations and service providers • Provide a common understanding of roles, responsibilities to increase the chances of a successful relationship March 28, 2010 10
  11. 11. Where Outsourcing Problems Happen • Inadequate Preparation = Savings Start Here • Flawed Service Provider Selection = Project Failure Starts Here • Unclear Contract = Conflict Begins Here • Wrong Performance Measurement = Management Failure Starts Here • Ineffective Ongoing Management = Service Delivery Problems Start Here March 28, 2010 11
  12. 12. Lessons Learned from Outsourcing Problems • Smoothly Transferring Services And Resources − Common cause of failure is the ineffective management of the transfer of services and resources to the service provider, leading to service delivery problems − Successful service providers rigorously control the transfer of services and resources to ensure that the new service is able to adequately deliver the service and the service continuity is maintained. • Maintaining Stakeholder Expectations − Common source of failure in outsourcing engagements is a difference in expectations between the client, the service provider and the suppliers and partners − Identifying and managing those expectations helps to ensure a common understanding of what is necessary for success • Translating Implicit And Explicit Needs Into Defined Requirements With Agreed Upon Levels Of Quality − Frequent cause of failure in outsourcing is that the service provider does not fully understand the needs of the client − Successful service providers rigorously gather and analyse the stated and unstated needs, then translate those needs into a set of documented requirements − Successful service providers also recognise that needs change over time and establish provisions for gathering and analysing modifications to their services March 28, 2010 12
  13. 13. Lessons Learned from Outsourcing Problems • Reviewing Service Design And Deployment To Ensure An Adequate Coverage Of The Client’s Requirements − Failure in outsourcing is caused by the service provider not fully addressing the needs of the client − To ensure that the service delivery will meet the client’s needs successful engagements include rigorous reviews of the service design and deployment activities by the clients and the service provider prior to service delivery • Managing Client’s Security − Managing security and controlling critical data and assets are critical to establishing trust − Security management includes protection of intellectual property, confidentiality and privacy concerns • Monitoring And Controlling Activities To Consistently Meet The Service Delivery Commitments − Successful service providers rigorously monitor their service delivery activities to ensure that the client’s commitments are being met − Actions are taken to resolve and prevent problems, thereby escalating issues as appropriate to ensure that they are addressed in a timely basis March 28, 2010 13
  14. 14. Lessons Learned from Outsourcing Problems • Monitoring And Managing Client’s And End User’s Satisfaction − Success is not always defined in terms of meeting the agreed upon commitments, because clients and end users may be unsatisfied even when commitments are being met − Successful outsourcing engagements monitor the satisfaction levels of the stakeholders to identify problems and take action • Managing Employee Satisfaction, Motivation, And Retention − IT-enabled outsourcing often involves challenges during transition, deployment and service delivery − High employee turnover jeopardises the service provider’s ability to meet its client’s requirements and undermines their expected gains and performance levels − Proactively monitoring and managing employee satisfaction and motivation can improve personnel retention and effectiveness • Managing Technological Shifts And Maintaining The Availability, Reliability, Accessibility, And Security Of Technology − Technology is a key component of outsourcing − Major challenges for the service provider include keeping pace with rapid changes in technology and effectively managing the technology infrastructure while changes are incorporated March 28, 2010 14
  15. 15. Outsourcing/Managed Services Does Have Advantages • Better use of personnel allows organisations to focus human resources on core services • Cost savings by not building and supporting IT and network infrastructure and using capital to purchase needed service levels and reduce total cost of ownership • Ability to use most appropriate technologies • Enables faster response to changes as the supplier is measured by ability to produce solutions • But it must be defined as you cannot achieve what has not been defined • Provision of managed service must be based on trust and common goals March 28, 2010 15
  16. 16. Outsourcing Experiences • 13% to 25% of outsourcing contracts are brought in-house within the first two years • Buyers replace 80% of their service contractors in the first three years • Contractors turn over 40% of their contracts each year, on average • Nearly 70% outsourcing organisations feel their service provider does adequately understand what they are supposed to do • Is there any reason to believe these experiences will not be replicated by public cloud-based services and implementations? March 28, 2010 16
  17. 17. Hidden Costs of Outsourcing • Transfer of knowledge − Processes and procedures − Documentation − Personal knowledge • Quality issues and their resolution − Inspection programmes − Sustaining quality programmes − Cost of rework • Communication − Poor customer service − Daily operational issues March 28, 2010 17
  18. 18. Outsourcing for Service Providers March 28, 2010 18
  19. 19. Phases of Outsourcing Relationship Ongoing Initiation Delivery Completion March 28, 2010 19
  20. 20. Phases of Outsourcing Relationship • Every outsourcing relationship has four phases − Initiation – prepare for and transition to provision of service − Delivery – provide service and manage and measure its provision − Completion – close-out the service after the contract ends or the service has been terminated − Ongoing – management of outsourcing lifecycle March 28, 2010 20
  21. 21. Initiation Phase • Concerned with preparation for and initiation of service delivery − Gather requirements − Perform due diligence to validate customer information − Assess if and how the requirements can be met − Prepare for negotiation − Negotiate and sign contract − Confirm assumptions − Confirm responsibilities and commitments − Design the service − Review the service design − Create service specification − Deploy the service − Transfer resources - personnel, technology, infrastructure, applications − Transition of service March 28, 2010 21
  22. 22. Delivery Phase • Concerned with service delivery including management of service delivery, verification that commitments are being met and management of costs associated with the service provision − Planning and tracking the service delivery activities − Delivering services according to the agreed commitments − Managing the finances associated with the service delivery − Identifying and controlling modifications to the services being provided − Identifying and controlling modifications to associated service commitments − Identifying problems that impact the service delivery and taking both preventive and corrective actions March 28, 2010 22
  23. 23. Completion Phase • Concerned with closing down the engagement at the end of the outsourcing lifecycle − Manage the transfer of resources to the new service provider, whether it is to the client or to another service provider − Ensure service continuity during transfer − Identify and transferring the knowledge critical for the delivery of service March 28, 2010 23
  24. 24. Ongoing Phase • Management functions that need to be performed during the entire outsourcing lifecycle − Manage and motivate personnel to effectively deliver services − Manage relationships with clients, suppliers and business partners − Measure and review the organisation’s performance and taking action to improve it − Manage information and knowledge systems so that personnel have access to the knowledge needed to effectively perform their work − Identify and control threats to the organisation’s ability to meet its objectives and client requirements − Manage the technology, systems and applications infrastructure used to support delivery of service March 28, 2010 24

  31. 31. Issue 1 - Establishing And Maintaining Trust With Stakeholders • Building a trusting relationship with stakeholders is critical to success • Important for all suppliers and partners involved in the outsourcing relationship – hardware, software, communications, services • By effectively managing expectations and responding to personnel, clients and end-users, service provider establishes trust with its stake- holders to help establish long-term relationships March 28, 2010 31
  32. 32. Issue 2 - Managing Stakeholder Expectations • Differences in expectations between the client, the service provider and the suppliers and partners is a common source of failure • Identifying and managing those expectations helps to ensure a common understanding of what is necessary for success March 28, 2010 32
  33. 33. Issue 3 - Translating Implicit And Explicit Needs Into Defined Requirements With Agreed-Upon Levels Of Quality • Frequent cause of failure in outsourcing is that the service provider does not fully understand the needs of the client − Inability of clients to adequately express their needs − Lack of rigor by the service provider in gathering and analysing those needs • Successful service providers rigorously gather and analyse the stated and unstated needs − Translate those needs into a set of documented requirements • Successful providers also recognise that needs change over time and establish provisions for gathering and analysing modifications to their services March 28, 2010 33
  34. 34. Issue 4 - Establishing Well-Defined Contracts With Stakeholders, Including Clients, Suppliers And Partners • Poorly written contracts are a common cause of failure and result in a large number of contracts being renegotiated • Outsourcing arrangements are typically long-term in nature and require contracts that are clear and detailed as well as being flexible enough to account for business changes • Formal mechanisms are required in order for the provider to identify changing needs, modify services based on those changes and amend contracts to reflect the current requirements and commitments March 28, 2010 34
  35. 35. Issue 5 - Reviewing Service Design And Deployment To Ensure Adequate Coverage Of The Requirements • Failure in outsourcing can be caused by the service provider not fully addressing the needs of the client • To ensure that the service delivery will meet the client’s needs, successful engagements include rigorous reviews of the service design and deployment activities by the clients and the service provider prior to service delivery March 28, 2010 35
  36. 36. Issue 6 - Ensuring The Effectiveness Of Interactions With Stakeholders • Large-scale outsourcing often involves a combination of face-to-face and remote interactions • Interactions with clients need to be managed in order to effectively understand their needs • Clear communications with all stakeholders can have a strong positive impact on the ability to effectively perform work March 28, 2010 36
  37. 37. Issue 7 - Managing Supplier And Partner Relationships To Ensure That Commitments Are Met • Outsourcing engagements can include multiple service providers working together to meet the client’s needs • Regardless of the type of relationship suppliers and partners can have a significant impact on the effectiveness of the service delivery and they must be actively managed March 28, 2010 37
  38. 38. Issue 8 - Ensuring Compliance With Statutory And Regulatory Requirements • Service providers are often faced with the need to comply with a large variety of laws and regulations • Effectively operating in this environment requires rigorous analysis and management of all applicable legal requirements to protect themselves and their clients March 28, 2010 38
  39. 39. Issue 9 - Managing Clients’ Security • Managing security and controlling critical data and assets are critical to establishing trust • Security management includes protection of intellectual property, confidentiality and privacy concerns • Breakdowns, such as security breaches, can impact the service provider’s ability to provide adequate service and can irreparably damage the relationship with the client March 28, 2010 39
  40. 40. Issue 10 - Managing Cultural Differences Between Stakeholders • In large-scale outsourcing there are many potential cultural differences between service providers, clients, end-users, suppliers and partners • These include differences between country, region and organisational culture • These differences need to be identified and addressed in order to guard against breakdowns in communication March 28, 2010 40
  41. 41. Issue 11 - Monitoring And Controlling Activities To Consistently Meet The Service Delivery Commitments • Successful service providers monitor their service delivery activities to ensure that the client’s commitments are being met • Actions are taken to resolve and prevent problems, thereby escalating issues as appropriate to ensure that they are addressed in a timely basis March 28, 2010 41
  42. 42. Issue 12 - Monitoring And Managing Clients’ And End-Users’ Satisfaction • Success is not always defined in terms of meeting the agreed-upon commitments because clients and end-users may be unsatisfied even when commitments are being met • Successful outsourcing engagements monitor the satisfaction levels of the stakeholders to identify problems and take action March 28, 2010 42
  43. 43. Issue 13 - Building And Maintaining The Competencies That Enable Personnel To Effectively Perform Their Roles And Responsibilities • Outsourcing is often highly dependant on specialised competencies without which personnel cannot effectively perform the work assigned to them • Service providers need to manage the competencies of individuals as well as the workforce as a whole in order to ensure that work is effectively performed and that the client’s requirements are met. March 28, 2010 43
  44. 44. Issue 14 - Managing Employee Satisfaction, Motivation And Retention • IT-enabled outsourcing often involves challenges during transition and deployment and service delivery • High employee turnover jeopardises the service provider’s ability to meet its clients’ requirements and undermines their expected gains and performance levels • Proactively monitoring and managing employee satisfaction and motivation can improve personnel retention and effectiveness March 28, 2010 44
  45. 45. Issue 15 - Establishing And Maintaining An Effective Work Environment • A work environment that is well suited to the service being delivered enables personnel to effectively perform their work • Also contributes to employee satisfaction and retention March 28, 2010 45
  46. 46.

Issue 19 - Capturing And Using Knowledge • Managing knowledge is critical to a service provider’s ability to avoid rework and improve the consistency and quality of work performed by personnel • includes the effective storage, retrieval and use of knowledge gained on engagements March 28, 2010 49
  50. 50. Issue 20 - Smoothly Transferring Services And Resources • A common cause of failure in outsourcing is the ineffective management of the transfer of services and resources to and from the service provider leading to service delivery problems • Successful service providers rigorously control the transfer of services and resources to ensure that the new service provider is able to adequately deliver the service and that service continuity is maintained March 28, 2010 50
  51. 51. Issue 21 - Maintaining Continuity Of The Service Delivery • Effectiveness of outsourcing is related to the service provider’s ability to maintain service continuity despite any problems that arise • Successful providers manage service continuity by effectively controlling and preventing problems during service delivery, preparing and responding to threats and coordinating the transfer of service during periods of transition March 28, 2010 51
  52. 52. Issue 22 - Capturing And Transferring Knowledge Gained To The Client During Contract Completion • Frequent concern of clients who consider outsourcing is that in-house knowledge will be eroded, making it impossible to bring outsourced services back in-house • Successful service providers address this concern by making provisions for capturing and transferring knowledge back to the client during contract completion March 28, 2010 52
  53. 53. Issue 23 - Measuring And Analysing The Reasons for Termination to prevent Reoccurrence • Termination may happen for a number of reasons, including an inability of the service provider to meet changing client needs, resolve problems, meet commitments, or match the capabilities of competitors • Analysing the reasons for termination and taking action based on the findings helps to prevent issues from recurring with other clients and ensure the long-term success of the service provider March 28, 2010 53
