What is IT Outsourcing?
IT outsourcing refers to the practice of contracting out certain information technology functions or services to external service providers. Organisations opt for IT outsourcing to leverage the expertise and resources of specialised vendors rather than handling all IT tasks in-house. This strategic arrangement allows businesses to focus on their core competencies while obtaining cost-effective, efficient, and scalable IT solutions.
