The Value of Global In-House Centers: Perception, Reality & the Future – Eric Simonson

The results of a recently completed Everest Group study designed to understand the value delivered by Global In-house Centers (GICs) — formerly referred to as “captives” – will be presented during this session. Findings will include how GIC executives characterize the value they aim to deliver, parent organization executives’ perceptions of the value they receive, and a discussion of the gaps between the two. The presentation will also reveal if executives are seeking to drive value beyond cost savings from offshore/nearshore operations, the key capabilities required to deliver enhanced value, and the ways in which parent and GIC organizations can improve their interactions to allow for increased value.

  • How does the hybrid model allow the CIO more flexibility and correspondingly, what additional knowledge, skills and responsibilities does it require?
  • Which metrics and risks brought about by delivering sourcing in the cloud should be at the top of a CIO’s agenda?
