A Multisourcing Maturity Model as an IT Governance Mechanism for Business Groups

fulltext etc.
abstract Many large corporations are adopting multisourcing strategies. Multisourcing is described as the blending of services from multiple company-internal and external suppliers in the pursuit of business goals. To date, governance-related aspects in terms of multisourcing have been scarcely covered in the academic literature. With this research study, the authors examine how business groups utilize governance mechanisms in a multi-sourced IT environment. This article contributes to the body of knowledge in three ways. First, it describes established IT governance mechanisms; second, it presents insights into three real-life examples of IT gov­ernance mechanisms at leading international insurance companies; and third, it extends current literature toward multisourcing in a group context by proposing and applying a framework of IT governance mechanisms targeting the different relationships of multisourcing in business groups. In addition, this research is useful for corporations facing similar challenges.
