Outsourcing IT security continues to grow, study finds

From SC Magazine

"Spending on the outsourcing of IT functions is rising at a rate that is in step with IT operational budgets as a whole, according to a new report, IT Outsourcing Statistics 2015/16, from IT research firm Computer Economics.

Enterprises may choose to contract with a service provider to preserve capital, reduce costs, improve operational flexibility, increase service levels, reduce management overhead or rapidly deploy new capabilities, the study found.

‘Outsourcing enables an organisation to augment inhouse capabilities without making long-term commitments or large capital investments,’ the study said, based on a survey of 132 IT organisations in the US and Canada. The onus falls on IT executives who need to ‘continually evaluate the potential of outsourcing to help meet their tactical and strategic objectives’.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it is large organisations – those with IT operating budgets of £13 million or greater – that are leading the trend, spending 7.8% of their IT budgets on outsourcing, the study showed. Most of the migration to third-party providers is done for helpdesk and web/e-commerce operations.”
