There are different types of IT outsourcing service and the three most common are:
Full IT outsourcing: With this type, all functions and tasks corresponding to the IT department will be performed by the IT outsourcing company.
Partial IT outsourcing: With this option, the IT tasks are shared between the two companies. Normally, the most complex tasks are carried out by the specialised company. In these cases, there is usually very little contact between the two companies.
Strategic IT outsourcing: With this last option, they work in a coordinated and joint manner through highly active communication. The main goal is to achieve the goals together, pooling technical knowledge, staff and all available resources.
The other less frequent types are as follows:
Transition Outsourcing: This refers to hiring an IT company to change and perform the transition to a new computer system. The customer’s company is responsible for managing the new system, while the outsourcing company is responsible for the old system.
Offshore Outsourcing: This consists of performing IT tasks outside Spain.
Multiple Outsourcing: With this option, the service is purchased by different companies. The advantage is flexibility and independence. The disadvantage is that the companies may have different opinions and this could lead to arguments.
