IT Reshoring Helps Companies Regain Control and Flexibility
Driven by promises of dramatically lower operational costs and reduced capital outlay, many companies sent their Information Technology work off shore as part of vendor provided outsourcing agreements. Most of these outsourcing agreements did deliver on their promises of lower direct operational costs. However, what customers found is that there were hidden costs that drove the overall financial picture through the roof. Also, the outsourcing agreements proved to be less that flexible when customers wanted to change how work isdone or selectively move work back on shore to take advantage of new processing models and technologies like cloud and Software as a Service.
