Why Barclays brought outsourced IT work back in-house.

Back in January I wrote a blog post that asked: Why is Barclays cutting IT suppliers and moving work in-house?

This was in reaction to the banks decisions to end a desktop management contract with Getronics and take it back in-house and end a six year contract with Accenture.

Well I found out the answer today. But the answer raises an even blogger question.

So a former senior IT executive of Barclays told me that the simple reason why Barclays insourced the work is because its CIO Jim Ditmore is a serial insourcer.

My next question is: can a CIO be a pure insourcer or outsourcer in this day and age?
