Sourcing Monthly April 2016 – May 2016
Conclusion: This month has seen a high level of activity in tender issues, funding allocations and new ICT projects by government agencies seeking to reap the benefits offered by emerging technologies, ongoing innovation and digital transformation. This follows general trends in outsourcing because of the advent of new technologies, contract structures and solutions that can be tied directly to fulfilling business objectives. Whilst the technologies exist, a report issued this month regarding CIO concerns has flagged difficulties still prevalent when attempting to take advantage of innovations, attributed to outdated existing technologies, policy and budgetary constraints. As the ICT outsourcing industry continues to evolve at a fast pace, organisations must adapt their inner workings to suit new technologies and business structures before they can take advantage of benefits, and avoid project failures because contracts and businesses are misaligned.
