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.

This Webinar is part of an ongoing collaboration between Bernstein and Everest for the past six years to conduct joint research and share collective findings with industry participants.
