The Current State
The allure of low-cost IT outsourcing continues to shift the economics of an IT development organization.
While the cost of outsourced IT development has gone down, overall quality and productivity is dropping at alarming levels.
Even with quality or productivity issues, IT outsourcing continues to be the only viable option for large companies to compete in today’s global market. The opportunity now lies in tuning and optimizing the IT outsource model. Only through the direct measurement and management of outsource quality and productivity can this optimization take place and cost savings be realized. This is accomplished through Affusion’s Outsource Optimization and Intelligencesm (O2I).
