Sourcing Monthly January 2015 – February 2015
Conclusion: this month, vendor collaborations for both development and education have been prominent. With increasingly complex IT environments and multiple vendors providing a range of services, it is necessary to understand the flow-on effects of adding new systems to technology infrastructure as well as possess resolutions to difficulties which can have a dramatic impact on business and company IT. Understanding, developing strategies, and establishing response measures for critical issues which can arise in specific environments is a necessity. Collaborative development and educational initiatives help to support these needs. In March, IBRS’ James Turner will be speaking in a webinar dedicated to data loss prevention, with a focus on strategic measures that cater to complex and unique environments. This type of information and awareness is invaluable to professionals, particularly when infrastructure complexities increase with the engagement of multiple providers.
