Abstract: In their desire to contain rising IS costs while at the same time becoming more productive, many corporations are developing an interest in outsourcing part or all of their IS junctions as one strategy for accomplishing these objectives. While this may make sense for some IS junctions because of systems developed with older technology, another strategy should be to put some emphasis on developing more effective and efficient systems using CASE technology. In the 1990s, the competitive advantage will go to those firms that can effectively utilize the fall potential of information technology.
