We’ve just released the new “European IT Outsourcing Intelligence Report 2011: Norway” that is currently available for free download here. The Report is based on the responses of the 491 Norway-based companies. The ratio of outsourcing to non-outsourcing companies surveyed was 284 to 201.

Key takeaways:

  • The greatest demand for ITO services in Norway comes from B2B software development companies
  • Most of ITO projects take 3 to 5 and 10 to 19 IT specialists to complete and are valued at€ 0-199K
  • Web solutions are most outsourced, while Cloud computing is least outsourced in Norway
  • Most of the Norwegian companies single-source offshore or onshore
  • Most of the Norwegian companies outsource to reduce operating costs, accelerate time to market, access IT staff outside Norway and release in-house staff for other business purposes
  • The key issues in the Norwegian ITO are delayed project delivery, poor project management on vendor’s side and cultural difference
  • Own Development Team is the most widely used engagement model in Norway
  • In the future, more Norwegian ITO buyers will go nearshore
  • Maximum project control retention is the key barrier that prevents many Norway’s companies from adopting ITO services

More thought-provoking findings are available in the Report.


IT Sourcing Europe announces the launch of the Norwegian IT Outsourcing (ITO) and In-House Software Development Survey being conducted in the frames of the 2d Annual Pan-European ITO research 2011. Norway is the last country in IT Sourcing Europe’s 2011 research agenda. The survey aims to explore:

  • current demand for IT outsourcing services across Norway’s industries
  • current level of adoption of the outsourced development / IT across Norway’s industries
  • key trends and challenges facing Norwegian outsourcing and in-house development companies
  • most effective problem solving techniques / best practices used
  • how actual annual incurred costs compare to the expected (contracted) ones
  • circumstances in which companies will consider outsourcing their web/software solutions and/or IT function(s) in the future etc

Each survey participant will be able to see most of the survey results right after participation (without providing any contact information) and will receive 2 thank you gifts: a complimentary copy of the 2011 Central and Eastern European IT Outsourcing Landscape Review and the present survey results compiled into a comprehensive Norwegian IT Outsourcing Intelligence Report 2011 (to be received last week of November 2011).
