Sourcing Monthly March 2011 – April 2011
This month’s outsourcing highlights are especially interesting – there has been lots of activity in buying and selling outsourcing businesses and specialised business units. There have also been a lot of announcements about new service offerings, or expanded service offerings by vendors. You’ll see examples of this in the general news section, as well as an article that talks about BPO firms less likely to experience growth if they have a singular focus, and not several service streams, like IT services. All these things show the need for diversification in outsourcing service offerings, as well as streamlining, expanding and very targeted offerings in specialist industries (like health care, mining or cloud specific etc).
