One product that IBM could outsource is its Technology Support Services product. It is a package that has a range of services aimed at tech support, preventive maintenance, and analytics. The elements include hardware and software support services to various extents, with some automated features (IBM, 2021). This would be a good product to outsource as this is essentially technology support, it does not utilize any unique IBM proprietary technology, nor is it a major project or consulting that the innovative tech firm can find engaging. IMB’s resources should be drawn to larger projects while supporting programs such as this should be outsourced.

Even when outsourced, the lead time for the Technology Support Services is short. From the moment that a business places the order, the support services can be in place within a working week, depending on the size of the company. Upon placing the order, the company’s physical and digital infrastructure has to be evaluated. Then, if other IBM services are used, the process is simple as Tech Support simply connects via existing services and cloud, beginning the evaluation process on the security, reliance, and efficiency of said infrastructure.
