Outsourcing: Unlocking Resource & Infrastructure Efficiency
With global markets in constant flux, the trend towards outsourcing to India has over the decade emerged as best possible way to drive in cost effectiveness, scalability and optimization.
The global economy with its changing dynamics has propelled organizations irrespective of size to take strategic decisions of leveraging expertise of service providers. The key intention is to fill the resource gaps prevalent within an organization by driving out the engagement whilst retaining the complete authority. In any business, the core competency does not revolve around managing resources and handling support thereby making it all the more imperative to outsource it to vendors as a part business process intelligence. Taking cue from this possibility, brilliant minds turned it into an opportunity thereby opening up the world of outsourced services as a separate industry vertical.
Faced with the challenges to bring down peripheral costs and constantly innovate on the core competencies, organizations across the globe have over the decade slowly and gradually opted for outsourcing. With the advent of ‘virtualization’ and cloud computing’, the phenomenon of deriving value from an external vendor became all the more seamless thereby opening up a plethora of possibilities for outsourcing varied services. The trend towards increased outsourcing not only opened up ways for minimized capex and opex, but also increased both visibility and the availability of domain specific experts on the global platform.
Like every other process, outsourcing has its own dynamics. The key lies in aligning an organization’s business goals with the expected outsourcing deliverables. The best outcome of outsourcing evolves from the delegation of a particular function to a company, which specializes in it, at a cost much lower than actual. Not only does this strategic move brings in operational efficiency, but also leaves more space and time for innovation and collaboration. The range of outsourced services spans from technical support to networking to creative services.
The stage is open and it is up to companies to unearth opportunities to transform their business and take it to the next level.
