White Paper:
How Businesses Can Benefit by Outsourcing and Co-sourcing IT Services from Progent
Section 1 of 9

Executive Summary
Utilizing outside IT services makes sense for businesses of any size. However, finding the ideal balance between full dependence on an external service firm (Outsourcing) and sharing responsibilities between internal and external resources (Co-sourcing) can be tricky. The answer is influenced by a variety of considerations including the health of the general economy, company budget and cash-flow issues, the time-criticality of an IT project, availability of skilled help, business opportunities, technical risks, and corporate culture.

Traditionally, enterprises and small businesses have adopted different outsourcing models. Enterprises would often work with big IT outsourcing firms who would negotiate iron-clad, fixed-term contracts for specified services while charging dearly for unanticipated support . Small businesses typically relied on local freelance consultants who put out fires when and if they could while offering little strategic direction or depth of expertise.

Decades of experience providing IT outsourcing services to both small and large companies have led Progent to develop a range of practice areas and an online service-delivery model that combine to offer the agility and affordability required by small businesses with the consistency and best-of-breed expertise demanded by enterprises. Progent's unique blend of IT outsourcing and co-sourcing services is the heart of Progent's value proposition.
