IT Sourcing | Pinnacle Model® Assessment

In the age of pricing disparities, talent shortages, and changing licensing models, IT sourcing has become all about spending wisely – thoroughly evaluating internal budgets and actual needs before making a purchase decision. Furthermore, new trends such as digitalization, cloud migration, shifting software licensing terms, and the subscription economy are driving increased spend (both coordinated and uncoordinated) and renewals in IT sourcing. These changes are driving a significant shift from a primary focus on cost savings to driving business value and generating revenue from IT procurement through best-in-class digital and process enablement.

Everest Group is conducting an extensive study to identify best-in-class, or Pinnacle, IT sourcing practices in leading global organizations. In this study, we will analyze:
  • Current strategies in IT sourcing
  • Key challenges in IT sourcing
  • Benefits of best-in-class IT sourcing practices
  • Technology maturity within global IT procurement organizations
  • Sourcing governance and performance management best practices
  • Key differentiating factors that help Pinnacle organizations achieve better results compared to others
How will this research help you?
We will share a complimentary summary analysis of the survey results, which will illuminate how other companies are shaping their IT sourcing strategies, so you can be prepared to make better decisions in future.
