The growth of digital business is triggering IT
organizations to implement new styles of infrastructure services.
Sourcing must devise new strategies to take advantage of the latest
trends in the infrastructure service market.
Therefore Sourcing should:
- Build the impact of
infrastructure service automation into the sourcing contract to maintain
an effective pricing model that parallels the anticipated labor
reduction in the next 18 to 24 months.
- Engage providers that can
deliver workplace-centric solutions for rapid deployment and ease of
image management to support an agile business plan that will eventually
need to include the customer.
- Implement a delivery model
shift to a cloud-based infrastructure or IaaS to allow for added
security and agility to deliver against an ever-increasing requirement
for digital business.
