ISG Momentum® Market Trends & Insights 2017 Geography Report

Outsourcing spending is on the rise again in most major markets. This resurgence isn’t being driven by access to new low-cost service destinations, but instead by enterprises that are trying to accelerate their understanding and use of digital technologies. Demand for increased automation is motivating much current outsourcing demand. A second trend that bears watching is that automation is also influencing where outsourced work takes place. Clients are realizing that automated work can be performed anywhere, which is causing them to question whether distant offshore destinations are still the best fit for their sourcing models.
