The basic concepts underlying on demand outsourcing, or purchasing IT services on a consumption-based pricing model, make it an attractive option for buyers. On demand outsourcing is a growing trend that is touted as a simple, more cost effective and strategically oriented sourcing solution. However, technical immaturity and lack of clarity regarding the precise nature of this sourcing option increases the potential complexities and risks associated with adopting it. A consumption-based pricing model is focused on activities, rather than technologies. Organisations incorporating such a model into its sourcing strategy must therefore make an assessment of potential benefits and hidden barriers to success that clearly defines the buyer’s goals and correlates these goals to services offered by vendors.
