What is the most common reason any company will work with a technology partner through an outsourcing deal? The most common response is often because it costs less than hiring the expertise internally, but this is not always true – cost is sometimes a driver, but not always.
Flexibility is usually a more important driver. Flexibility to find expertise exactly when and where those skills are needed, especially when the skills don’t exist internally.
When a big project is being designed and created it may be that particular technical skills are only needed for the implementation. It makes no sense to hire the expertise internally in the same way that you probably go to your local car dealer when your car needs a service rather than doing all the work yourself.
SAP is a great example of this principle. Founded in 1972, SAP is the world’s largest business software company having more than 55,700 employees in 130+ countries. Today, more than 183,000 customers in 130+ countries use SAP software on their workstations. SAP is a very popular business tool, but the companies using it don’t need to keep SAP experts on their own payroll all the time – it makes more sense to work with a partner like IBA when the expertise is required for planning and a new implementation.
IBA has worked on the application of SAP projects since 1996. There is now a team of highly–skilled professionals with almost two decades experience in diverse and mission-critical SAP projects.
This principle can be applied to any technical tool, but SAP is one of the most popular business systems used globally. IBA has the expertise and can deploy consultants and even run your technical help desk for questions related to SAP and all for the lifetime of your project deployment.
In this case, outsourcing allows you to tap into a large talent pool. You can get the right SAP skills in the right place at the right time – every time.
