Companies Turn to Insourcing to Meet Tech Talent Needs & Achieve Speed and Scale: Report
Digital transformation (DX) is about achieving continual innovation, speed, and agility in today’s data-driven, customer-centric business environment. It requires skilled professionals to create and fine-tune an enterprise’s digitally enabled products and services. The pace of change is so rapid that it is virtually impossible for any enterprise to hire and retain its own cadre of IT professionals who are skilled across the ever-widening board of digital technologies. Turning to outside sources is a must. At the same time, retaining experienced employees with deep knowledge of a business and industry can be just as critical.
This IDC PeerScape report outlines effective insourcing tactics across a wide range of industry segments. IT leaders and CIO Executive Council members contributing their observations on nurturing in-sourced technology talent to the IDC report include: CIO John Hill of Carhartt Inc., a $400M privately-held global company and well-known maker of workwear based in Dearborn, Michigan; Michael Mathias, CIO at San Francisco based Blue Shield of California, a $17.6B healthcare insurer with 4 million members; and Joseph Spagnoletti, CIO at US LBM, an approximately $3 billion national specialty distributor, based in New Jersey, that aggregates demand nationally for lumber, roofing, siding, and other building materials across 30 states.
Each of these transformational leaders has significantly revamped their IT organization’s professional insourcing strategies to achieve faster development times, more efficient operations, and rapid progress toward their enterprise’s digital transformation and business goals.
