Information systems (IS) sourcing refers to the entire set of processes ranging from initiating and preparing the decision to provide an organization's IS functions. IS sourcing is closely related to the steady change and provides a collection of research studies that have either addressed one or more of the research gaps in traditional IS outsourcing. It gained momentum by the appearance of IS outsourcing megadeals involving clients such as Kodak, Continental Bank, and BP with providers such as Electronic Data Systems and International Business Machines. The IS outsourcing phenomenon has moved beyond the boundaries of the IS function to include entire information technology (IT)-supported business processes.
