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.

IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
