    IT Outsourcing: What Can Be Learned from Midsize Companies

    The recent research shows that they may get more out of their IT services deals, While the midsize companies came later to the IT outsourcing party than their big company counterparts. The 63 percent of  the mid-market buyers said that their outsourcing initiatives had been very successful at the reducing costs compared to the 44 percent of the large companies. It is considered that these other stats, this is according to a survey of 277 the outsourcing buyers conducted by the outsourcing analyst firm HfS Research and the London School of Economics,

    ” The 42 percent of mid-market buyers said their deals were very effective in meeting compliance and regulatory requirements, compared to 30 percent of large companies. ” then ” 33 percent of mid-market buyers said outsourcing had given them more effective global operations, compared to 18 percent of large companies. ” and “30 percent of mid-market buyers said their deals were very effective in providing access to new business process acumen compared to 17 percent of large companies. ”

    The smaller companies is seeing more of the gains from the outsourcing but why? You know that “They take what HfS Research founder Phil Fersht describes as a “ripping off the band-aid” approach to outsourcing.” Fersht says. “Quite simply, mid-market organizations have to bundle more processes together into one broader deal to make it large enough to warrant the attention of the leading services vendors,” and  “They rarely will have the luxury of outsourcing step-by-step.”  Followed by application testing, application development, and finally infrastructure, the larger enterprises, with $3 billion or more in annual revenue, tend to outsource in increments over a period of years perhaps help desk support first.

    Fersht says “Large firms have rarely gone for a ‘big bang’ approach to outsourcing,”  and “They are large enough to be able to dictate to vendors their preferred pace of outsourcing.”  Fersht added that “But large companies’ slow and steady approach is not winning the race,”  says Fersht. Such measured outsourcing can discourage necessary transformation. “By and large, organizations outsource processes that probably aren’t very well run in the first place,” Fersht says. “Their ‘softly, softly’ approach to outsourcing is prolonging the disruptive change a buyer needs to go through to reach its desired global operations end-state.”

    The ancient legacy systems and lack of IT talent. But by outsourcing a broader set of IT processes and people from the start, in the mid-market outsourcing customers have their own set of problems chief among them. They have a better chance of remedying both. Fersht says that “Having skilled service vendors take on their operations has been by and large a positive experience for them,”  and “While a mid-market organization may not  the same level of aggressive cost reduction through large-scale labor arbitrage as larger enterprises, they clearly enjoy the benefits of accessing improved technology and process expertise.”  Fersht said that ” Outsourcing providers, who have traditionally focused on their big bread-and-butter clients, ought to take note” For creating quickly deployable, standardized outsourcing models., the mid-market is a potential testing ground. Then “Vendors need to attack the middle market, in addition to the easy dollars at the enterprise level, in order to develop a balanced portfolio of clients,” Fersht says. “Enterprise engagements will serve up profit and deliver scale that can be invested in middle-market clients, which are road-testing these industrialized solutions of the future.” This is shown that the information technology is helpful in the companies who have big problems. The outsourcing is still finding a good solution for the problems of the company.
