Managed IT outsourcing activity is increasing in the economic downturn, it has been revealed.

According to IT industry analyst Gartner, around 60 per cent of organisations in western Europe will outsource more IT and business process functions in 2009, while renegotiation of existing contracts will rise to more than 60 per cent.

Research carried out by the group indicated organisations are increasingly relying on managed IT outsourcing to achieve cost optimisation.

Claudio Da Rold, vice president and distinguished analyst at the group, commented: "The outsourcing market's growth has slowed from 2008, but today's market is characterised by a high volume of activity across the board.

"The focus on cost reduction is driving a high usage of outsourcing and global delivery in Europe in 2009 and 2010."

Last week, managed services provider Direct Response commented that businesses should ensure they look for a culture fit when seeking managed IT outsourcing providers.
