This IDC Perspective addresses the key tactical challenge of developing an agile sourcing strategy. Spend for new and emerging technologies is quickly outpacing the spend for legacy technologies. In fact, the spend for legacy technologies is decreasing and savings from legacy retirements is fueling the spending growth for new technologies. Furthermore, enterprise budget dynamics are shifting the spend for these new technologies to business units outside the IT organization. All these changes are challenging sourcing technology organizations to deliver what they have been traditionally charged with — savings.
"The development and execution of Agile sourcing strategies in this new era is paramount for technology sourcing operations to deliver meaningful results to the businesses they support," says Aaron Polikaitis, vice president of research, IDC's Vendor Sourcing and Management.
