Outsource your IT without risking your data and device security
A 2013 Gartner report predicted the global IT outsourcing market to reach $288 billion, with Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and Great China markets expanding more than 13 percent.
In a recent article, Bryan Britz, Research Vice President at Gartner, said, “Enterprise buyers pursuing hybrid IT strategies, and small and midsize business buyers adopting infrastructure as a service (IaaS), are key drivers in cloud and datacenter service segment growth rates,” he explained. “The global market size for datacenter outsourcing is in gradual decline due to workloads moving to IaaS and to infrastructure utility services exceeding the net-new adoption of datacenter outsourcing.”
Britz noted that while planned adoption of IT outsourcing remained positive across all segments, growth potential will be limited due to tighter IT budgets, evolving outsourcing delivery model, economic conditions, and cost-focused buyers. He also quoted a more tempered outlook for end-user outsourcing due in part to increased purchases related to bring-your-own-device (BYOD) and reduced business support requirements for end-user devices.
