It is not atypical to find a company in which cumulative IT management neglect eventually culminated in an out-of-control situation the current IT department could not recover from. Management can see outsourcing as a way to fix a broken department. Third, a firm under intense cost or competitive pressures, which does not see IT as its core competence, may find outsourcing a way to delegate time-consuming, messy problems so it can focus scarce management time and energy on other differentiators.
Employee development and attracting highly skilled individuals to the organisation are essential in delivering quality service.

Immediate interfaces and connections have been developed within two functional areas – for instance link between purchasing departments and manufacturing department or logistics and marketing (Lambert, et al, 1999); however, these interfaces are not all pervasive. But if outsourcing is done within these functional areas, then integration of the same with the in house activities is very important. The intense fragmentation and multiple levels of channels have endangered the existence of these retailers as well as the native retailers, as a result of which they have entered into fierce competition by relying on the ‘lowest price’ game and achieving economies of scale. Most of these retailers have focused on forward and backward integration in order to achieve cost reduction.
