Independent, non-commercial and connected – Your interest representation in sourcing of IT and business processes in the D-A-CH markets and Europe.
The German Outsourcing Association is a completely independent member organisation. As registered association we act as platform for professionals and organisations involved or interested in sourcing or providing IT or business process services in/for the D-A-CH markets.
Our primary task is to actively support and influence the market for co-operations with external service providers in IT, finance, HR, procurement, manufacturing and management. In practice this means, that we accumulate, analyse and process information that are relevant for our markets, that we evaluate national and international service provider landscape as well as single organisations, that we provide opportunities for exchange and contact and that we provide active business support.
As independent association we represent the interests of all market attendees – buyers, consultants, service providers, and public administration. Among the relevant activities are the improvement of the transparency of the service provider landscape, building independent information and contact opportunities, active support when evaluating an communicating with service providers, consultants and public administration (e.g. for foreign investments).
Among the initiatives are publishing neutral, independent market information, and best practices, for instance via our Outsourcing Journal, the maintenance and development of online services, like our internal network, business directory, the organisation of events, general public relations and individual business consulting.
