Why Read This Report

The offshoring trend has not slowed down. More and more companies are moving external IT support offshore to leverage cost savings.

Management and governance depend largely on the individual client situation, but there are some general statements and best practices that apply across the board. This document highlights some of the key considerations Forrester has found need to be taken into account to move offshore work forward including support ratios, impact on management, and internal preparation.
