SHANGHAI, Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Bleum, one of China's top IT
outsourcing providers to American and European companies, commissioned its
whitepaper, "Outsourcing to China -- Removing the Risks & Maximize Competitive
Advantage" from Frost and Sullivan, a leading consulting firm with operations
around the world.
As the economic downturn starts to wane and conditions become more
favorable, many organizations will ask CIOs to deliver more while at the same
time keeping IT budgets flat. In order to achieve these seemingly opposing
objectives, one of the effective ways is to broaden the use of outsourcing and
in particular, China, as a major provider of offshored IT services is now
normally considered for this kind of work.
This paper discusses the drivers and inhibitors for choosing China as an
offshoring destination and also contain recommendations for effectively
engaging with Chinese outsourcers including how to select a Chinese IT
Services provider with the aim of mitigating risks via a vendor evaluation
framework, checklist and scorecard.
"Offshoring and Outsourcing are inevitable, and organizations even in this
economic turmoil should not only care about cutting cost, but more importantly
focus on maximizing their competitive edge over their competitors through
offshore outsourcing," said Eric Rongley, CEO and founder of Bleum.
"Outsourcing can decrease the total cost of ownership and improve a company's
internal operations, quality and productivity. There are now companies over
here which have de-risked outsourcing in China."
Bleum is one of China's leading outsourcing providers to American and
European companies in a variety of sectors including high-tech, financial
services, telecommunications, and retail. The company specializes in creating
global development centers, providing services such as application development,
support & maintenance, testing and legacy system modernization. American owned
and managed, Bleum invests heavily in its people, has the same business
culture as its customers and operates exclusively in English.
