How Next-Generation Application Outsourcing can Transform Business
Next-Generation Application Outsourcing is redefining what enterprises seek from their IT vendor. Conversations have moved past the conventional objective of cost-efficiency to offering an increasingly strategic value that impacts business objectives. The emergence of disruptive technologies and a growing desire for enterprises to drive business transformation has infused the services sector with innovative tools and solutions. Now, application outsourcing focuses on transformation and how to help businesses thrive more.
In the changing IT landscape, speeding up time-to-market and enabling a customer experience that delights at every stage in the lifecycle are twin essentials to remaining competitive. Next-Gen Application Outsourcing marks a paradigm shift towards a digital business ecosystem— from reducing cost of ownership and increasing operational efficiency to building IT solutions that are business-focused and customer-centric.
Innovation is the name of the game given that the market landscape and customer requirements are constantly evolving, and currently, businesses aim to enhance customer experience using disruptive technologies. Faster service delivery, shorter time-to-market, and new functionalities in real time are the hallmark of IT solutions today. Cloud, IoT, AI, specialized disruptive technologies, and niche services like Fintech have ushered in cost reduction beyond traditional norms, excellent consumer experience, and service levels that offer seamless functionality.
Redefining Customer Experience through Disruptive Technologies?
The focus has moved from standardized solutions to agile and automated processes. Faster time-to-market demands new efficiencies. There is, consequently, a need to look beyond Next-Generation Application Outsourcing as just a disruptive technology and see it as a holistic system engaging and driving business growth. Integrated transition and service delivery frameworks are no longer the focus; total IT outsourcing is. Rather than being driven by convention, Next-Generation Application Outsourcing is here to break the rules.
The changing market landscape has increased demand for Integrated Transition and Service Delivery frameworks with continuous improvement as against the traditional approach of creating different frameworks for Transition and Service Delivery of Infrastructure-focused projects and Application Development and Maintenance projects. Similarly, sourcing traditionally done through tenders, contracts, and recruitment partners is now being done through unconventional methods like conducting hackathons and crowdsourcing.
Traditional modes of forming partnerships, too, are changing. An IT vendor who in the past would tie up with only prominent and established players, is now forging alliances with niche technology product companies and developing deal-based collaborations. Smart companies are moving their HR practices toward an environment of real-time feedback and adopting changing models like pay-for-perform. The bespoke changes and newer, innovative roles that focus on offering prime service are driving the demand for Next-Generation Application Outsourcing. Businesses across verticals are seeking to partner with Next-Gen IT Outsourcing companies to bring in process excellence, reduce total cost of ownership, and succeed in this digital shift through business-focused IT and superior customer services.
