EUC with HCI: Why It Matters


Spending on outsourcing is increasing. Many CIOs are now willing to outsource strategic IT functions and applications. Still, outsourcing will remain focused on application and Web development, integration and hosting. Few are yet ready to outsource project management, or such sensitive areas as security and data storage.
