Sourcing


The outsourcing market has been traditionally defined in terms of cost and efficiency. And those are still important expectations of any sourcing engagement. But a confluence of technology trends – including cloud, mobile, social and big data - is opening up new potential for these sourcing relationships to go beyond simple cost-cutting. When done right, these partnerships foster innovation, drive growth and enable transformation in companies large and small.


Innovation

Companies are constantly driving to innovate and remain competitive. IBM recognises this investment and ensures that the client can leverage the complete IBM equation: its world-leading research and development capability, industry thought-leadership and product/services portfolio. Successful innovation with many IBM clients have harnessed the best capabilities on both sides of the sourcing relationship to deliver business value and drive revenue growth.

Cloud

Cloud computing provides access to the latest software and infrastructure technologies designed to foster business innovation. And by deploying technology as a service, users are given access only to the resources needed for a particular task and avoid paying for idle computing resources.
