Outsource to Gain Competitive Advantage

As companies continue to recognize that technology can be a competitive differentiator, the need for experienced IT staff continues to grow. With no end in sight for the war for talent, what strategies should savvy CIOs and CTOs put in place to mitigate its effects?

First, consider outsourcing one or more of your business processes. Outsourcing provides access to specialized experience and knowledge, often not available within an organization, which can be leveraged for competitive advantage. By outsourcing, you transfer responsibility for that process, including staffing, to your outsourcing partner.
