- Date:Wednesday 6th December 2017

It’s been a huge year for outsourcing globally, with the industry undergoing a number of dramatic changes. Robotic automation, Brexit, the high-speed digital agenda and a whole host of other trends are threatening to disrupt outsourcing convention and upheave where the power lies.
What does this mean for the future of outsourcing? Many in the media are citing job losses, while others are claiming that the end of outsourcing itself is nigh. Simultaneously, analysts say new advances in technology stand to empower the best buyers and service providers, allowing them to streamline operations and excel in areas such as data analysis and customer-centricity.
