Many sourcing experts have been through a provider merger or acquisition in their time in the industry. The concern that it will disrupt existing services or alter the nature of the engagement can make M&A announcements a troubling read.
The last few years have triggered dramatic changes in the way IT outsourcing arrangements have been made by enterprises.
