The Ins and Outs of Outsourcing

Outsourcing is a hot topic these days, in both the political and business arenas. We'll leave the political considerations to a different forum, but if you're not certain whether outsourcing makes business sense for your company, a look at the basic pros and cons may help you decide.

After evaluating the pros and cons, more and more mid-market companies are choosing to outsource all or part of their ERP systems. But what are the real benefits of ERP outsourcing? What are the different outsourcing models, and the advantages and disadvantages that come with each? Which model is best for your organization, and what are the critical success factors? These are the questions you must ask, and here are the answers.

Today we also provide some analyst insight into one of the software industry's leading solution providers: Infor. With its numerous new software license sales, new product deliveries, and its dedication to complicated technological rejuvenation—namely, an ambitious open service-oriented architecture strategy—Infor's star is clearly on the rise these days.
