Overview

IT, Software and Services: Outsourcing and Offshoring - The Strategic Plan with a Practical Viewpoint by Robin Sood

IT, Software and Services: Outsourcing and Offshoring provides an essential overview of the burgeoning phenomenon of outsourcing. Although some pundits have been critical of the outsourcing trend, author Robin Sood argues that it is simply a fact of the contemporary global marketplace--one that can only be ignored at your own peril. Sood covers the reasons for outsourcing and provides strategies for doing it right. Many companies do not do it right, and the result is a lot of wasted time and money. The information contained in this book can literally save your company millions of dollars.

By reading this book, you will be able to develop your own strategic plan, by learning:
  • The main advantages of outsourcing
  • What work can be outsourced effectively
  • Why outsourcing sometimes fails--and how you can avoid such failure
  • Which are the most desirable offshore locations and why
  • What criteria to use for selecting the vendor that is right for you
IT, Software and Services: Outsourcing and Offshoring is essential reading for business leaders in the 21st century who want to "keep up with the Joneses." If you are contemplating outsourcing, already involved in it, or merely want to remain competitive in today's fast-moving and ever-changing marketplace, you cannot afford not to read this book.
