Buyer's View in ''Life after Mega-deals in the IT Outsourcing Market'' Webinar on March 12 to Be Presented by Everest Research I

Analysts from the Everest Research Institute and Sanford C. Bernstein & Co. will hold a one-hour Webinar to discuss the new challenges in the Information Technology Outsourcing (ITO) market stemming from a decrease in the mega-deals segment of the ITO market, lack of traction in the Small and Medium Business (SMB) segment, and the emergence of the Large Enterprises as a key driver of growth in the ITO. The Webinar, “Life after Mega-deals in the IT Outsourcing Market,” will be held March 12, 10 a.m. CDT/11 a.m. EDT.

Ross Tisnovsky, Vice President of ITO Research at Everest Research Institute, and Senior Analyst Rod Bourgeois of Bernstein Research will discuss and answer the following:

  • What are the latest trends in the global ITO market?
  • What are the structural changes in key client segments in the ITO market: mega-deals, Large Enterprises and SMB?
  • How are these changes in the ITO market likely to affect the ITO markets (i.e., Application Development Maintenance or ADM, Infrastructure Outsourcing or IO, and Remote Infrastructure Management Outsourcing or RIMO) from the pricing and competitive intensity points of view?

“Most ITO research has been focused on analyzing individual market segments such as ADM or IO,” said Tisnovsky. “In this Webinar, we’re going to look at the market from a different angle by evaluating pertinent trends by customer segment.”

“For several years, we've harped on maturation in the mega-outsourcing-deal market. The action has now turned to smaller outsourcing deals in the Large Enterprises market segment. This industry shift has significant implications for growth, pricing, and competition,” said Bourgeois.

The 45-minute Webinar, followed by 15 minutes of questions and answers with participants, will take place on March 12, 2008,at 10 a.m. CDT; 11 a.m. EDT. To register, please visit: www.everestresearchinstitute.com/Events/Webinars.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository.

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world.

Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
