Key Decision Criteria Discussion
Information Technology (IT) managers should take into account certain factors while making decisions regarding IT sourcing. To begin with, IT managers should take into account the technology that the IT system needs. As such, there is a need for the manager to consider the company’s unique needs, such as process and procedures while determining the system to acquire (National Research Council (U.S.)., National Research Council (U.S.)., & National Research Council (U.S.), 2010). Analyzing company’s needs would enable the IT manager to determine the ideal system to source.
