TheInfoPro: IMS Growth

NEW YORK -- TheInfoPro (TIP),, an independent research network and leading supplier of market intelligence for the Information Technology (IT) industry, today announced the release of its inaugural study of the IMS Sourcing market. According to the research gathered, 85% of Global 2000 organizations that are currently using IMS Sourcing, or that are considering using it, are planning to spend more on IMS sourcing. Only 4% plan to spend less throughout the remainder of 2007 and into 2008. Based on the interview responses, the service provider poised to benefit most from this added spending is IBM, followed by Tata (Tata Consulting Services), Wipro, HP, and HCL.

As relationships with current outsourcing providers stabilize and mature, most organizations are renewing their contracts and planning to spend more of their budgets on outsourcing additional infrastructure services, and in particular within the areas of Storage and Servers,” said Robert Stevenson, Managing Director of Sourcing at TheInfoPro. “Surprisingly, the decision to outsource more services is not being reached solely on a cost-cutting basis. It is also based on the fact that organizations are given access to an expanded talent pool, as well as an increased ability to standardize the technologies being used within the organization.”
