Software Outsourcing A key actor on future marketplace ?


Alfredo M. Ronchi

EC MEDICI Framework of Cooperation

MEDICI Framework

Established in 1995

Promotes the use of ICT & New Tech in the field of culture - education, cultural heritage

       Main actions:

      Networking, information & knowledge sharing

      Events and initiatives, research projects

      Education – courses, etc

MEDICI is an active partner of the World Summit Award Org.

       United Nations WSIS

       Why “Digital revolution” & Outsourcing

Some clues

       Ontological point of view: digital “objects” represent a completely new class of objects

      Copies are clones

      Almost zero cost of reproduction

      Instant transfer and dissemination


       Lower threshold to reach masses, immediate broadcast

       New Agorà

       Real time action and reaction

       Point to point and peer to peer communication

       Basically no difference due to census, sex, geographical location, etc

       Moore’s Law, dropping costs

       Quick implementation even from scratch

       No real need for backward compatibility


       Outsourcing of Digital Resources




      Digital preservation


       The present: some trends

Technology is evolving . . . PCs . . . ubiquitous access to services

       From PCs to “non-computers”

       From “e” to “m” (e.g. eGovernment -> mGovernment);

       From “programmes” to Apps

       Local Storage and Processing to Cloud Computing (SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, Haas)

       From stand alone DB to clouds, open and big data


       And as it happens in the maturity phase of many sectors “performances and good by definition…. The choice is about appeal”

Market is evolving -Software Market

       From plastic box on the shelf to on line shops and shared applications

       From few expensive software solutions to many cheap Apps or services

       . . . .

       From software companies to single or small groups up to social & crowd sourcing …

       Online distribution and payment based on e-shops enabled the access to the mass market to single developers;

       Standardization of systems and guidelines helped as well as software outsourcing and clouds.

       . . .

       50 billion app downloads

       Users & “Customers”

Users are evolving . . . . new way to use / “consume”  media, information & content

       From professional users / Computer Scientists to former digitally divided;

       From content consumer to content prosumer:

       From information provision to service provision . . .

       . . . this opens the door to outsourcing and clouds . . .

       . . . .

Customers side:

       People is looking for the Top 10 Apps;

       The consume of Apps is continuous;

       The market model is based on low costs /big numbers;

       The IPR management is evolving . . . 

       Digital media are evolving . . .

       . . ..

       Outsourcing: opportunity or threat ?

My focus is on ICT: Software & Services

Research & development

      Specific technologies

      Shared facilities (storage, processing, etc)

eServices provision






       Islands, archipelagos . . . of content & services

Technology it is not enough

Hardware it is not the solution – sometimes it is a “bad ambassador”

Hardware and software without content and services it is not useful

We may enjoy happy islands or even archipelagos thanks to some content and service infrastructure

Political approach of announcements . . . they announce the day after tomorrow skipping the present day

In order to get to the point and reach the critical mass quickly outsourcing of applications and added value services may help

       Cloud Computing & Service Outsourcing


       Activate principles of digital preservation


       Policy and guidelines (who is in charge, hosting, etc) - > OUTSOURCING

       Best practice

       ICT companies cooperation

       Benefits & Drawbacks
