Working with requirements documents

The total or partial outsourcing of IT services is attracting more and more all types of companies. This model allows them to have the IT resources needed to develop their business without having to invest heavily in hardware and software infrastructure. Before outsourcing, the company must reflect on what she expects from a partner. The company must know precisely what is expected of outsourcing and what the return on investment they can anticipate is.
The analysis of the current situation and of the existing requirements, the specification of functional characteristics, and sometimes the legal framework are all aspects that must be mastered for a successful project. A well-researched and defined requirements document is a prerequisite for any IT project.
Hence the importance of making a clear and detailed requirements document with the supplier.
It is essential to draw up a complete inventory of what will be outsourced and to clearly specify the requirements.
