Why outsourcing tech talent is important
Outsourcing allows companies to focus on their core values, such as service delivery, while leaving critical business aspects to experts. Leading global organizations like Microsoft, Amazon, Google, and IBM are already seeing the untapped potential on the African continent.
With a combined BPO workforce size of about 790,000 workers and the combined estimated US$15.1 billion domestic and international market size, Africa has emerged as a new hub for IT outsourcing services.
This trend is expected to continue as technology evolves. Nigeria, with its high number of unemployed graduates, presents an opportunity for the government to collaborate and train these graduates for such roles. However, it is crucial to create an enabling environment for outsourcing businesses to thrive in the country.
