Tech leaders need to identify no-frills IT services and put a strategy in place to take advantage of the cost savings and the reduced risks that using such services can provide, research firm Gartner says. These one-size-fits-all solutions, when coupled with cloud tools, offer a scalable option that enables enterprises to adopt next-generation services with the ability to add capabilities as necessary. Industrialized, low-cost IT services, or ILCS, will account nearly a third of the IT services marketplace by 2015, and generate revenues of $177 billion, Gartner says.
