Atlanta, GA (PressExposure) October 01, 2009 -- Decision First Technologies (DFT) today announced its new Domestic Sourcing program as an alternative to offshoring models. Outsourcing IT related functions has become a common trend and offshoring has become a popular practice, yet because of time zone differences, communication barriers, productivity issues, political unrest and a host of other problems, more and more companies are realizing that offshoring may not be as cost efficient as they think. Research has estimated that domestic sourcing can provide a 20% to 40% cost reduction, a significant payback for any company. DFT will help companies realize the value of domestic sourcing by offering services out of its Atlanta, GA location that will cover business intelligence reporting initiatives including report writing, report testing and report conversions.
"Now our customers will be able to augment their current staff with the talent they need without significantly increasing their costs," said Scott Golden, Vice President of Consulting Services for DFT. "Creating interactive reports is probably the most requested user need, yet many companies do not have the time, budget or expertise to accomplish this task. Our services will enable companies to do this...all with a cost structure that is competitive to offshoring or other traditional alternatives.
In addition to reducing costs, DFT's domestic sourcing services can help with accommodating peak loads by minimizing fluctuations in headcount that can result from peaks and valleys in demand. Utilizing these services can also improve productivity and time to market by minimizing time zone differences and communication barriers as well as enabling staff members to work on more important issues instead of repetitive functions.
DFT is the 5 time SAP BusinessObjects Solution Provider Partner of the Year and the 2009 SAP Pinnacle award winner in the BusinessObjects channel partner category. "DFT has built a strong reputation for providing quality BI consulting and education services to companies in a wide range of industries," said Taylor Courtnay, Vice President of Sales for DFT. "Our knowledge and expertise with SAP BusinessObjects as well as our disciplined BI processes, makes us a sensible choice for companies to partner with. And our new domestic sourcing program provides companies a competitive option over other alternatives such as offshore organizations that don't possess the same level of certifications or experience."
