Why Read This Report

Budget pressures have spurred significant growth for offshore services during recent years, to the point where applications development and maintenance has become synonymous with "offshoring." However, the rising importance of systems of engagement — coupled with the difficulty of working on Agile development in an offshore context — has spurred interest in domestic US and EMEA-based alternatives. Sourcing and vendor management professionals are now tasked with adding domestic sourcing capability to existing sourcing models, including internal options, contractors, and third-party offshore services. Like the changing technology landscape, the evolving domestic sourcing movement is more complex than it seems, with different groups of suppliers with varying agendas serving multiple needs.
