Application Outsource Risk Survey Data

September 18, 2007


About 125 IT/Software developers took our survey at TechEd in June 07 on the risks associated with outsourced application development. Over 60% of those survey were from enterprise organizations and 12% with software vendors (see diagram below). When asked if they believe that outsourcing software development has increased your company’s code theft, piracy, or malicious tampering risks? 30% answer yes and 38% were not sure. We attribute a large amount of the unsure votes the people being surveyed not having direct involvement with outsource partner selection and management.
