Trust the “Outsourcing Journal” to come up with predictions in the outsourcing market for 2007. Although obvious, it does prove to be useful articulation of what is bound to happen in this hyper-growth market. Summary of the trends –
1. Start-up costs go down (supplier margin compression, increase in competition, etc.)
2. Strategic choices increase (e.g. – location)
3. Supplier market will consolidate (due to a super increase in the number of suppliers)
Overall, looks like a good time to get into outsourcing – for those who have been toying with the idea this year.
