Because finding and selecting a suitable technology or business process partner is not so easy, when the market is less transparent and when the company has even only a few or no experiences in outsourcing.
In addition all service providers present themselves somewhat different, rarely with information that are actually useful for a quick pre-evaluation, references are seldom given or it is often very difficult to see whether these are relevant or not. At the end buyers face a situation where it is extremely difficult to put together a long-/ or short list of potentially suitable technology or business process partners.
Here the German Outsourcing Association helps with an independent catalogue of suitable service providers for IT and business processes, industry associations and resources. Due to the knowledge about each of the companies and organizations included in the catalogue, we even give an independent recommendation for co-operations on sourcing projects in Germany.
