Abstract or Introduction
The enduring impact of the financial crisis forces more and more businesses to concentrate on their key competences because of dwindling sales. Nevertheless shareholders demand a reasonable reward for their investment in the business, customers expect an equal quality level and staff won’t accept salary cuts. One possible solution to satisfy at least the shareholders and customers is offshore outsourcing of IT/IS-services. Information technology (IT) and information systems (IS) are very complex topics in many cases and cause high costs. During the recession, cost cutting is often the number one strategy to keep the business running and beyond the break-even.
