Session Overview
All enterprises are faced with rising performance pressures on an ongoing basis. Business Agility is required to flourish in the face of performance pressures. Organisations that have grown both organically and inorganically over the years have growing numbers on IT spend, as they try to manage their application portfolio. This not only tips the balance sheet, but also prevents the organisation from budgeting to adopt new technologies to add flexibility, and scalability in addition to cost effectiveness.

The globalization of both IT services and business processes allows organisations to right source, their technology and business processes so as to stay competitive and create niche competencies. The Global Delivery Model is an engine for today's economy. It facilitates a natural shift to the distributed, process-centric, ubiquitous, cross-cultural, and heterogeneous paradigm for software development, while providing favourable economies of scale. This also allows them to balance their balance sheet, as well as refocus on their own domain.

In this session, we will develop a business case as to why and how this can be done. At the same time giving examples of corporations that have achieved operational excellence with minimal investments on their IT assets by leveraging the global availability of IT services, RnD services, manufacturing services amongst many others.
