By handing over certain tasks and processes to an outside contractor, internal stakeholders are able to focus on more important activities that will help grow the business without sacrificing service levels or quality. Unfortunately, these benefits become more difficult to achieve when outsourcing is combined with workload automation.

Let’s face it, planning for capacity is hard. The traditional solution to capacity concerns has been to over-provision IT infrastructure, but this is a wasteful practice that results in under-utilized resources, unnecessary costs, and even an increased carbon footprint.
