Contractors ‘could see more IT outsourcing opportunities’

April 13th, 2010

more opportunitiesContractors working in the UK’s IT sector could start to notice more placement opportunities as companies look to increase their outsourcing.

This is the view of IT consultancy Ovum, which said that a number of businesses are now developing long-term strategies as the economy begins to settle.

Patrick O’Brien, a senior analyst at the firm, said: “No one knows exactly how things are going to work out, whether there’s going to be a double-dip recession or whether we’re going to have a gradual recovery, but I think there’s a little bit more confidence and a little bit more visibility with businesses.

“That enables them to have a bit more confidence in making strategic decisions around outsourcing.”

The comments follow the publication of a report from managed services company Hibernia Evros Technology Group, which promoted the benefits of outsourcing as the speed in which technology changes can make it difficult for internal IT departments to keep up.
