Outsourcing has been significantly changed over the last few years.  2016 will bring the new trends in the outsourcing world.

Outsourcing companies will have to adopt result oriented approach.

Companies will prefer to have its IT operations to be done in a single service center rather than multiple service providers. I mean to say they will move towards a centralized approach.

Cloud is not going to take over, please not that the data security is still a big concerned and it is not going to be adopted by everyone anytime soon, not at least in 2016.

And last but not the least, the quality of Client service will remain the top priority like always.
