Director, Network Services, CACI
The outsourcing market in the UK is rapidly changing. Only a few years ago, outsourcing more or less equalled offshoring. Yet, out of the £6.6bn worth of outsourcing deals struck in 2015, 90% involved services being delivered onshore in the UK – with half being awarded to new local operators.
This white paper demonstrates that while offshore activity remains significant in many sectors, local outsourcing offers are gaining in strength compared to their offshore counterparts. These intricate trends have given rise to “Outsourcing 2.0”, where IT executives across the UK are working hard to identify the optimal mix of in-house services, onshore outsourcing and offshore outsourcing.
