Outsourcing Turns IT Leaders into the New Air Traffic Controllers
Raths, David
Campus Technology, v24 n1 p26-31 Sep 2010
Many chief information officers (CIOs) have come to accept and even embrace the role of outsourcers in their portfolio of IT services. In 2009, 47 percent of the 352 CIOs surveyed by the Center for Higher Education Chief Information Officer Studies (CHECS) said they had selectively outsourced some part of the IT function, up from 43 percent the previous year. Meanwhile the number of CIOs reporting that they retain exclusive control over their IT functions dropped to 52 percent, from 55 percent in 2008. As more higher education institutions turn to different outsourcing models--traditional, cloud-based, or consortial--IT leaders must manage, monitor, and integrate technology solutions from all directions. Integrating outsourced models into IT strategic plans is the challenge of the decade.
