Strategic information technology outsourcing transactions are complex arrangements in which a customer entrusts responsibility for a functional component of its business to a service provider for an extended period of time. Unlike a merger or an acquisition which concludes shortly after signing, a strategic outsourcing arrangement is a living transaction that continues for years after the signing of a definitive agreement and leaves a customer reliant on the service provider for the continued provision of the outsourced function.
