In the tunnel outsourcing – part 2.

Currently, the benefits militates in favor of use of outsourcing in its own business activities are not only considered in financial terms. In outsourcing for the recipient matters to keep safety during performing daily tasks which are current and crucial for his organization. Those are technologies and functionality, which don't require testing performed on their own resources - which helps in handling his company, as a more competitive on the market. It's security in the form of contracts and penalties (SLA), which are a consequence of this. There is no single model of outsourcing, because it is used in a variety of areas. Service recipient may contract outsource to take care for selected area and then we will be dealing with a selective outsourcing i.e. responsibility for network infrastructure. If the recipient transfers all of his infrastructure to the external management then we will be dealing with outsourcing full, which implies the acquisition of resources (personnel and equipment). It is important who owns hardware because in the case of outsourcing collocation: "the customer can receive a place in the server cabinet, access to the network, power, and support of the administrators, by providing by himself server(s)"[1], while in the case of outsourcing hosting service is based on "availability of renting server resources and virtual hardware platform or system platform"[2]. Therefore, to determine the best possible form of outsourcing it should be preceded by a thorough analysis of areas with imperfections. For this purpose, helpful should be external audit of company, which will clarify them and suggest other than assumed, technical and system solutions.

In the outsourcing interesting is that its features depend on needs of the market and specific sectors, so its specificity is the permanent development. It is a guarantee of penetration and implement recent technologies as well as knowledge base as case studies, which together enable in advance to choose the best form of outsourcing for a specific field. Outsourcing is not only a form of renting a company to particular tasks because as it shows in services such as Application Service Provider (ASP), the company in such a model rents a system application which service provider manages, secures and updates. While service recipient  pays gratification in the form of subscription.

New needs and tasks shows that the argument of the benefits will be the most transparent tools for testing outsourcing. They do not need them to be off benefits of cost reduction, because the outsourcer does not provide services through barter, thanks to him to companies and institutions capital flows, which is not easy to measure, it is the knowledge and security through a positive allowance enabling improvement of their organization.
