HMG Webinar Replay

A Webinar from SMC² and HMG Strategy

Expanding Your Engineering Teams to Brace for the Digital Tsunami

As companies press forward with their digital transformation initiatives and try to leverage cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, data analytics, and robotics process automation to drive successful business outcomes, many executives are discovering that the digital engineering skills shortage is creating a significant competitive disadvantage.

According to Heidrick & Struggles, an overwhelming 71 percent of enterprise executives believe they do not have the right talent for digital transformation. With unemployment rates near zero percent, corporate leaders are worried about losing the war for engineering horsepower and being leapfrogged by digital-savvy competitors.

The knee-jerk response by many companies is to tap into offshore outsourcing for sought-after digital skills. But you need to avoid multiple risks associated with offshoring, including a lack of quality skills, poor communications, exorbitant billable hours and – ultimately – inferior results.

Instead, a growing number of organizations are opting for a global insourcing model that has a guaranteed lower cost while delivering a 1:1 quality and productivity ratio. Learn how you can build an effective global IT team while eliminating the risks and failure points of an offshore model.

In this webinar replay by SMC² and HMG Strategy, you will discover:

  • The red flags associated with offshore outsourcing models along with the advantages of utilizing a global insourcing approach for digital transformation
  • Examples of leading companies across different industries that are leveraging global enablement teams to gain a competitive edge
  • The business benefits and productivity gains that a global insourcing model can deliver
