complex outsourcing deals with many providers — will find that they
retain a significant competitive advantage over peer organizations.
This IDC web conference explores the ways that companies have
historically managed outsourcing and how organizations need to adapt to
the changing nature of outsourcing relationships. This session will
provide guidance to IT executives on ways to develop their governance
and relationship management capabilities to wring more value from
