Q2 2018 Market Vista™ Briefing: Global Services Market Trends – Will the First Quarter Set the Stage?

In this fast-paced 45-minute webinar, Everest Group experts will summarize and explain the most impactful events in the global services industry thus far in 2018 and look forward to how these events will shape the rest of the year. While the first quarter typically sets the stage for the full year, will 2018 be any different? There is recovery in traditional services, whereas some segments continue to stagnate. We’re also seeing preference towards in-house delivery model in many enterprises, with small and mid-sized firms also driving setup activity.
