Accelerated Outsourcing helped us with a proof of concept for considering outsourcing our IBM mainframe environment. The process provided an excellent framework that enabled Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center to perform an objective feasibility analysis for outsourcing its IBM mainframe infrastructure. In the end, a decision was made to retain IBM mainframe resources in-house rather than outsource to a third party. The proof of concept was critical in helping us make an objective decision that we feel comfortable with for the next planning horizon. Adrian Bannister, of Accelerated Outsourcing, proved to be knowledgeable, objective, and great to work with. Accelerated’s methodology provided an excellent planning tool to help address the outsourcing question. It proved to be straight forward, easy to follow, and resulted in quality comparative information related to our environment and relevant prospective outsourcing vendors. Working with Accelerated Outsourcing helped us to easily answer the question of whether or not to outsource our Mainframe infrastructure.
