The Cost of Outsourcing Is Often Underestimated
Radu Rizea, Chief Editor
The main trend in the enterprise IT development is to turn to outsourcing
to control and cut IT costs. Still, the latest Gartner research reveals
that the total cost of IT outsourcing is often underestimated, and initial cost
reductions do not always lead to lower costs. This ussually happens when
the IT managers look rather at the initial cost reductions than the total cost
during the life of a deal and to the value a service provider's capabilities can bring.
