Many Companies in Europe don't Know Outsourcing Value

Many companies have little understanding of outsourcing value

A survey among 250 Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) of Europe's largest companies reveals that many businesses have little understanding on the value of outsourcing and its impact on their companies. This was commissioned by Cognizant, a leading global IT and BPO services provider, and developed by Warwick Business School.

Less than half (43%) of CIOs and CFOs who participated in the survey have attempted to measure the return on investment of outsourcing to their companies. Thirty-seven percent (37%) did not try to measure the value of outsourcing, while 20% do not know if they have tried to determine the ROI or not.

According to Sanjiv Gossain, Vice President and Managing Director, UK and Ireland, of Cognizant, "Outsourcing has clear, long- and short-term benefits for businesses, but the research shows that many companies could be missing out by failing to adequately measure outsourcing's impact."
