The ITO Governance Challenge: Overcoming Barriers to Achieve Operational and Financial Transparency

The challenge of managing a large outsourcing relationship is an important responsibility shared between the enterprise, the consultant and the service provider to ensure a program’s overall success. However, according to ISG research, “Companies lose between 5 and 30 percent of the expected value of their outsourcing relationship through ineffective governance.”

A significant portion of value leakage can be sourced directly to the area of asset management because it’s inherently difficult to integrate diverse sources of record and manage a dynamic asset base that can change up to 30 percent annually due to typical asset retirement cycles.
