The growth of IT outsourcing has no apparent end, although changes in technology have affected various aspects of how it is handled. Cloud technology, for example, continues to redefine our ideas about where and how data is processed and stored. And there are geographical influences as well. American and European companies tend to outsource work to the Philippines, with Japanese companies outsourcing to China. Nevertheless, at the most fundamental level, the outsourcing of Information Technology operations is largely a decision based upon money and efficiency.
It’s easy to understand why an emerging or startup company would turn to IT outsourcing as a way to gain the benefits of the most advanced information processing without having to buy it outright. Although the cost of a given amount of processing power has greatly decreased over time, competition increases what is expected of the final output, meaning that the cost of bringing together all of the equipment and technical expertise necessary to be competitive remains out of reach for many smaller companies.
But it’s not just small companies that turn to outsourcing. As larger companies go through transitions, perhaps involving mergers or acquisitions, it becomes more cost effective to outsource IT projects than to tackle them in-house. Outsourcing providers that are perceived by the marketplace to have the right stuff are able to line up giants of industry. Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, a global provider of outsourced IT solutions, has served the likes of Merck, Volvo, and UPS, and continues to target top-of-the-line corporations around the world. It’s not an easy market to crack, but Beacon knows that the size of such operations represents an almost endless supply of opportunities.
