Contrary to reports showing that outsourcing is dwindling down, a research report shows that outsourcing deals are indeed growing and actually have reached the status of “mega deals”.
Here is an interesting excerpt from the research study done by Forrester:
Results found that 84 deals in total were closed in EMEA during the second quarter worth over â‚¬5.4 (Â£3.8 million), which is 19 more deals than in the same period last year.
IT infrastructure deals accounted for 45 per cent of all outsourcing contracts and help desk and support services also increased substantially, making up at least 44 per cent of the contracts.
Surprise findings came from the Nordic countries where Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark closed 14 deals together, reflecting the “high outsourcing maturity” of this region.
If this research study would be the basis, you could see that Europe continues to embark on outsourcing. I guess it just means that they are satisfied with this kind of business strategy and would continue to invest in it.
