Outsource real purpose?

"Outsourcing in large organisations never saves money - the outsourcer makes a profit, so wouldn't insourcing save Qantas that same profit? Sure, IBM and other outsourcers have a wide range of expertise, but don't 1,000 IT staff also have that range? I think that most of the time in large organisations, outsourcing is just a great excuse to get rid of the deadwood that is slowing the place down, and the long term view is to insource again after the contract expires."
