IT benchmarking is known both as a valued as well as a dreaded instrument for assessing IT services, costs and prices. It is not always used only to uncover weaknesses of in-house operations. Hard conversion values offer concrete opportunities for optimising costs and services, as well as the IT processes and structures.

Our market knowledge, flexible methodology, industry and project experience across a range of topics, as well as know-how in the form of best-practices and templates will all be instrumental in helping you achieve your sourcing objectives.
We would be happy to support you beginning with the creation of your sourcing strategy, on to monitoring the RfP process, and all the way through to getting the ratification of your optimum IT service provider.
