Diligently do due Diligence ...
The centrepiece of each and every IT sourcing is the putting out to tender and subsequent contract design. When a fair give and take for both the customers and the outsourcing providers has been agreed upon through contracts, the success story can last a long time.
However, if you, as the customer, are dissatisfied with the performance of your provider, this brings up the question of a validation of contract vs. reality. Quite often, the process of putting out to tender starts anew then.
The occasions for discussing the putting out to tender of your sourcing are numerous. Nevertheless, it is always something of an exceptional situation since your core business and your core competencies are located in other areas.
We at noventum do not offer any outsourcing services ourselves. Instead, we as independent and objective advisers of our customers who pursue a strictly analytical approach in the preparation of outsourcing decisions.
