10 Outsourcing Trends to Watch in 2016

Pace Harmon’s insights were once again featured in CIO.com’s annual outsourcing predictions article. Rahul Singh, managing director, offered commentary on key trends. Sample excerpts: “’The threat profile changes every day and with every added protection comes a new vulnerability, not to mention it is becoming harder and harder to tie products together to deliver a robust security solution,’ says Rahul Singh, managing director at outsourcing consultancy Pace Harmon. ‘In 2016, we expect to see the rise of the Chief Security Officer and more enterprises opting for specialized security vendors with Security-as-a-Service capabilities that can protect data no matter where it resides.’…Pace Harmon’s Singh says we’ll see more product-driven managed services ‘as more product-oriented vendors, such as Cisco and others, move beyond just selling their products to also delivering services around their products. We are already seeing this on a small scale, but expect it to ramp up in 2016 as very large clients are growing their managed services capabilities.’”
