Outsourcing budgets to rise: Survey
New Delhi, Mar 5 (UNI) Patni Computer Systems announced that a recent survey of top decision makers on corporate technology and spending revealed that 89 per cent plan to increase their outsourcing budget over the next 12 months.
''Thirty nine per cent said they expect to increase budgets by up to 20 per cent over their current spending, while 11 per cent plan a 50 per cent or more increase,' a release of the Patni Computer Systems said.
The survey was conducted at Patni's annual user conference, PatniConnect which brought together more than 100 global CIOs and business leaders from the company's customer base in the US, UK and Asia-Pacific regions.
The survey also revealed that pricing is not the most important factor in selecting an outsourcing partner. Cultural fitness and quality of service ranked the most impotant.
