Dedicating Resources to the Value-Add…

“IT can no longer ignore the increasing clamor of requests to provide access to corporate resources from smartphones, tablets and other consumer-owned devices.”

- Global Leader of Workplace Enablement Services, Accenture

“It’s generally accepted that ongoing IT operations consume 80% or more of IT staff time leaving, no more than 20% of time for value-add project work. This fact has always frustrated IT executives as well as their business peers who continue to have more and growing demands.”

- Five Top Issues facing CIOs in 2012

a solution to these challenges
A Solution to These Challenges:

Outsourcing solutions represent a very attractive solution for businesses of all sizes.

“With IT budgets relatively flat at most companies, and with competitors fighting for every scrap of business, CIOs can no longer afford to spend 70% to 80% of their precious funds supporting and maintaining existing systems. They must shift, permanently, a big chunk of their budgets into growth initiatives--IT projects and programs that open new markets and drive new business rather than just maintain the status quo.”
