Why Read This Report

Amidst a panoply of potential threats, including insourcing pressures, rising costs, the growing threat of domestic US-based alternatives, and the potential impact of immigration reform, India-based applications outsourcing (AO) retain the high ground in the market for applications outsourcing in North America (alternatively EMEA). North America remains the epicenter of demand, while India remains the principal source of supply. The nature of AO services, meanwhile, is evolving, with a growing concentration on business outcomes. Sourcing and vendor management professionals place new urgency on selecting appropriate applications outsourcing partners, as success with applications outsourcing must translate to business results as well as progress in transitioning to the new digital enterprise.
