" I just mention those companies that just simply say 'yes' to each and every request and to each and every kind of customer, and they end up not able to come back with the deliverables as promised. These companies are disasters."

Alex, if they are not able to deliver the committed services, then no point in doing any business with them. Credibility is an important factor in any business.

Jacob, 

Yes it is competitive. I just mention those companies that just simply say 'yes' to each and every request and to each and every kind of customer, and they end up not able to come back with the deliverables as promised. These companies are disasters.

"i totally agree with you on this. I would rather partner with companies that really focus on their core strength and we can strategically move forward. There are companies who try to do everything with any key competency and it is very hard to work with them."

Alex, competition is there in all sectors. When customers prefer to get all the solutions from a single point, vendors try themselves to groom for fitting to the slot. Some may perform well and others may get collapsed. It's all depends up on how they are able to manage it

"That said, most organizations do a few core things very well and others to a lesser degree. By delivering the core value yourself and outsourcing the non-critical items-- while still controlling the entire process---is the key to providing your client an end to end vlaubale offering."

Frank, internally we can outsourced the non-critical items to third party vendors, but it has to appear to the customers as service from a single point.

It is also good to partner with someone who can bring new technology to your way of thinking.  We often try to find partners who can help us develop new ideas and products to stay competitive.

You make a valuable point in that a single point soluiton is important to your client in terms of total value. That said, most organizations do a few core things very well and others to a lesser degree. By delivering the core value yourself and outsourcing the non-critical items-- while still controlling the entire process---is the key to providing your client an end to end vlaubale offering.

"In today's business climate, you need to be exceptional at your core competency or value proposition to your client and you need to outsource the rest. Finding the right partner, though, is critical to success."

Frank, am not sure how much its true. What I understood from the market is most of the clients are looking for a package solutions from a single vendor. Ok, it can be through a third party outsourced provider too.  But they need all supply of services/support/components etc from a single source.

@SP, you make an excellent point here. I'd like to hear from others... What do you outsource and what do you keep in house? How do you make the decision?
