Part 4 of a 5-Part Strategic Transformational Sourcing Webinar Series
External forces are disrupting the very foundation of Managed Services forcing companies to evaluate and alter their approach to outsourced Managed Services. Companies are struggling to keep pace with an everchanging landscape of offerings that are disrupting their current Managed Services relationships.
Software vendors like SAP are forcing a move from perpetual license on-premise solutions to cloud subscription licenses that drastically reduce their remaining non-cloud infrastructure and Application Management Support agreements. Incumbent third-party infrastructure support providers, like Virtustream and Kyndryl, are exiting the colocation infrastructure support business and providing short notice and prescriptive alternatives for companies to transition.
Strong integrated sourcing strategies are required to proactively navigate these external dynamics and complexities as the infrastructure landscape continues to fragment. In this webinar, we address ways companies can prepare to navigate these disruptions and explore the following:
- Key trends disrupting the managed infrastructure services landscape
- How Managed Service providers are shifting their go-to-market strategies
- The I&O towers most impacted by these changes
- Key decisions companies will need to make and their available options
