IT Sourcing

Remaining competitive in a changing world

Digital Transformation and the advance of Cloud services have a big impact on the IT-market. The traditional boundaries between providers of hardware, software and services have become blurred, and new types of providers have entered the market. As a result, organizations have to fundamentally reconsider their IT (out-)sourcing strategy.

Burnt Oak can help companies and other organizations to develop and implement new sourcing strategies, resulting in more flexible and agile contracts with the suppliers of IT services.
