Strategic Sourcing you can Trust

Strategic sourcing is a crucial factor in the development of your business model, organization and IT landscape. The right mix of partnerships and suppliers determine your efficiency, innovative strength and even the attractiveness and competitiveness of your company. Eraneos is the partner to guide you through all stages of the complex sourcing process.

Sourcing at the heart of your strategy

With the rapid changes in the technology area, it is essential to continuously adapt your organization and IT landscape and make it future-proof. The challenge is choosing the right focus and defining which tasks should be done by your own organization, but also which ones should be outsourced to be able to lead or keep up with market developments.

Eraneos supports clients to choose the optimal models for (hybrid) cloud solutions and partnerships whether they are offshore, nearshore or onshore. By sourcing intelligently, you can realize a successful digital transformation, reduce costs, improve efficiency, and accelerate innovation. At the same time, it is also important to look at your needs for continuity, compliancy and (cyber) risk management. Our holistic approach ensures a sustainable sourcing process.

Accelerate IT transformation with sourcing

The IT infrastructure and services are the backbone that supports your entire organization. Our expertise in IT sourcing will help you design and implement well-founded sourcing guidelines and an IT landscape that integrates both current market standards and future-proof innovation opportunities.

Whether you want to move applications or computing power to the cloud, use the most suitable AI platform, outsource development capacity, or insource a distinctive process, a proper sourcing approach will contribute to the success of your digital transformation. The right sourcing mix enables you to maximize both your own capacities and the opportunities the market has to offer.
