Well, it looks like nearly one-out-of-two major enterprises intend to increase their application development and maintenance (ADM) outsourcing this year, according to a joint survey from KPMG and HfS Research, an outsourcing analyst.
“The more experience the buyer gets with outsourcing application development work — coupled with the increased knowledge their provider develops of its institutional processes — the greater the cost savings that can be achieved by moving more work out to the providers’ lower cost staff,” Phil Fersht, Founder and CEO at HfS Research.
A total of 399 companies participated in the survey, 88 percent — are satisfied with the cost reduction and standard delivery performance of their providers.
