Outsourcing is a growing business.

According to consulting firm Everest Group, global outsourcing demand exceeded expectations in the first quarter of this year, during which most service providers reported sequential growth in revenue, and transaction activity was higher than in the previous eight quarters.

However, a Wall Street Journal posting yesterday reports that IT outsourcing contract deals are getting smaller. And it notes that such a deal recently struck by long-time allies BAE Systems and CSC (News - Alert) was worth just $600 million for five years. That’s less than a third the size of a five-year deal the two penned in 2005.

Service providers like to outsource the operations of their networks too. IHS (News - Alert) Technology reports that telecommunications outsourcing services reached $69 billion in 2015. This space is poised to reach $76 billion by 2020, according to the research and consulting company. Ericsson is the leader in this space, followed by Huawei (News - Alert), HPE, IBM, and Nokia Networks.
