Why Read This Report

Forrester's Q2 2010 survey of more than 2,800 IT services buyers across the globe shows that firms are again investing in more strategic initiatives, with IT strategy consulting and systems integration spend both seeing a rebound in 2010. This means that after more than a year of focusing on their existing supplier relationships through rationalizing vendors and renegotiating rate cards, sourcing professionals now must refocus on helping drive new project success. This includes refreshing your knowledge of the services landscape and new providers, as well as ensuring you're up to date on favorable pricing trends and best practice contract terms.
