In the critical world of healthcare services, efficiency and accuracy are paramount. For a leading American health services company catering to the healthcare needs of over 100 million individuals and managing a workforce of more than 100,000 associates, a strategic approach to optimizing IT operations is necessary.

Recognizing the benefits of outsourcing critical elements of its IT infrastructure, the organization embarked on a transformative journey to enhance operational efficiency and streamline processes.

However, during this transition, they encountered a pivotal challenge: the need for comprehensive data visibility to govern their strategic relationship with the outsourced provider effectively.
