On the other hand, Phil Carter, director of SunGard's planning solutions group, argues: "The only alternative to outsourcing risk management is to build your own recovery capability which is obviously very expensive - the risk is low but because we are such a big supplier now we can also offer a low risk service at a much less cost to the company.Plus we offer services relative to the level of risk that the company wants to take."
