Multi-speed IT Sourcing for High-speed Value

10,080 views

Published on

A traditional IT sourcing strategy no longer satisfies the requirements of the business. The classic, one-size-fits-all, in or out approach to IT sourcing, built around long-term deals with traditional suppliers, is not agile enough for an increasingly digital marketplace.

It doesn’t enable CIOs to accelerate improvements in performance while controlling costs. Nor does it help organizations seize evolving opportunities to improve the customer experience.

Multi-speed IT sourcing, by contrast, aligns with a multi-speed enterprise. It allows CIOs to leverage disruptive digital technologies at speed, tap into innovation, and use as-a-service-enabled models, whenever and wherever they are needed to create value.
