Manufacturers are looking to multiple technology areas to assist their operational and horizontal outsourcing strategies. For operational outsourcing, control of key data and processes needs to be retained. Horizontal outsourcing on the other hand requires strong service level agreements and a smooth transition. This brief highlights two approaches (PLM and BPO) that support manufacturers.

Scope of this title:
