Market & Sourcing

Design, Procure, Manage

IT sourcing is successful when the strategy is professionally managed from the fundamental questions to the practical implementation and optimisation. The central components: sourcing strategy, sourcing design, IT procurement and sourcing management. From the basement to the cloud.

In many IT sourcing agreements, tensions between the partners can be resolved with a market price benchmark - if the clause in the contract is well designed. Otherwise it can lead to further dicey situations.

Think about the future today - this also applies to IT sourcing. A benchmark clause in the sourcing contract can protect clients (and providers) against imponderables. What do IT managers and purchasers have to bear in mind?
