How Smart sourcing can help organisations rise above disruption in the times of Covid-19?

As we all get accustomed to the NEW NORMAL, there’s a lot that has changed in the way software development companies operate now.

Not that there aren’t any reservations with businesses opting for software outsourcing companies but SMART outsourcing is actually the most convenient way to be in these times.

The ‘2020 Global Managed Services Report’, based on a survey of 1,250 executives in 29 countries, said that 45% organisations will outsource more than insource in the next 18 months, with 57% citing security risks as a key challenge of managing IT in-house.

That clearly implies one thing: CHANGE

It is inevitable.

Covid-19 has totally changed the way businesses function now. It has also generated a dire need for leaders and organisations to rethink strategies and reposition workforces.

Remote Working is actually THE new Normal and organisations are adopting SMART sourcing to navigate with confidence.

But, what exactly is SMART sourcing?

Well, it’s an approach to select those service providers that not only deliver business outcomes aligned to the goals of the entire organization but also go above and beyond the indigenious way of working.

It enables your organisation to have the desired expertise to fill-in the gaps in your in-house IT team. It takes you forward on your IT transformation journey to deliver the much-required business agility.

What impact can it create in your existing IT infrastructure?

Remote working wasn’t even a thing for many businesses prior to the COVID-19 outbreak. But now, it’s the NEW norm. SMART sourcing can actually play a great role in the whole enterprise development. Organizations need to understand the fact that SMART sourcing will not only support them to pivot their focus onto business continuity, but also work towards keeping their employees safe and productive. All this and more, while still managing their fundamental IT ecosystems.

Following are some of the major impacts it can create:

1. Compliment your core competencies
When you SMART outsource, your service provider is sure to have a deep understanding of what your organisation’s core competencies are. It will not only help you strengthen but also compliment your core competencies and drive your organisation towards better business outcomes.

2. Better security infrastructure
While almost your entire workforce is working from home, security is a concern to have. Remote working has enabled organisations to keep a tab on the consistent security protocols and tools, to ensure seamless security of the entire organization. Monitoring data transfers and installing endpoint security software are some other considerations taken by companies to mitigate security risks thereby making an easy way for SMART sourcing.

3. No more Skill crunches
While you SMART source talent, the possibility of skill crunches is very low. You won’t find yourself lacking both cutting-edge technology skills, and capacity in your journey. SMART sourcing will help your organisation with an added external perspective, best practice methodologies, and other intellectual property.

Outsourcing in the times of Covid-19 is actually becoming a way of life in the global economy. SMART outsourcing is THE well-managed outsourcing process that can translate into business improvement across the globe.
