Enterprise Sourcing Executives, Everest Group to Gather July 21 in NYC to Share Insights on Unlocking Outsourcing Value | Press Release

Second event in “On Point | Summit Series 2016” to feature Rod Bourgeois of DeepDive Equity Research; topics will include sourcing models, next-generation IT, and contracting for business outcomes.

The global outsourcing industry has matured into a slower growth pattern, but strategic outsourcing solutions can still add dramatically more and different value to organizations. Discovering the keys to unlocking this outsourcing value will be the focus of the day as enterprise sourcing executives and senior leaders gather in New York City on July 21 at the On Point Summit to network and share insights on optimizing their global sourcing strategies.

The half-day summit—hosted by Everest Group and themed “Succeeding in Outsourcing 4.0: Imperatives for Strategic Sourcing Executives”—is a forum designed for enterprise attendees to learn from each other and featured industry experts and leading practitioners.

Special guest speaker, Rod Bourgeois, head of research and consulting at DeepDive Equity Research, will present, “What are the Winning Models? An Investor’s View.”

“We launched the ‘On Point | Summit Series 2016’ because our clients and others in the industry wanted a safe forum where they could exchange ideas with peers and engage with us in person,” said Eric Simonson, managing partner – research at Everest Group. “Based on feedback from our first event, our format of intimate interaction with peers, an opportunity to hear provocative thought leaders, and a chance to have detailed discussions with us on key issues is exactly what these business leaders are looking for. The takeaways from the event offer an excellent ROI on the time invested.”

The July 21 agenda will feature a panel of leading outsourcing practitioners who will engage participants in a lively discussion about incorporating next-generation capabilities into outsourcing solutions. Other highlights will include “Bring Your Own Topic” (BYOT) roundtable discussions and insights on contracting for business outcomes, offered by Everest Group.

Everest Group hosts for the event include Simonson; Jimit Arora, partner and leader of IT services – research; and Sarthak Brahma, vice president, pricing assurance – research.

This is the second installment of Everest Group’s by-invitation-only “On Point | Summit Series 2016.”  The first event, held in May, focused on emerging technology and talent trends in the banking, financial services and insurance industry. Guests enjoyed active dialogue with peers, insights from Everest Group research analysts, and a presentation by guest speaker, Chitra Dorai, IBM fellow and CTO of cognitive services, who shared her thoughts on “Cognitive Computing for Process Re-imagination in Financial Services.”

The third event in the “On Point | Summit Series 2016” will be held in October. Everest Group recently announced that, due to popular demand, the “On Point | Summit Series” will be extended with a full slate of events in 2017.

471 Global Services Deals in Q1 Exceeds industry Expectations | Press Release

Webinar identifies “talent hotspots”– locations well positioned to lead in the delivery of digital services

Global outsourcing demand exceeded industry expectations in Q1 2016, according to Everest Group, a consulting and research firm focused on strategic IT, business services and sourcing. Most service providers reported sequential growth in revenue, and transaction activity increased significantly, with more new deals reported in Q1 than in any of the previous eight quarters.

Growth in the IT outsourcing market was a key contributor to the outsourcing industry’s strong performance in Q1, with banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI) and manufacturing, distribution and retail (MDR) verticals leading the way. Service delivery automation, an ongoing trend among service providers, is helping replace a substantial amount of human yields, resulting in significant cost savings for enterprises.

Everest Group presented these and other highlights of the global services market in Q1 2016 in a one-hour live webinar on May 12. The webinar, “Key Insight on Digital Service Delivery ‘Talent Hotspots’ PLUS Market Vista™ Q1 2016 Update,” featured Everest Group experts offering insights on the delivery locations that are positioned to become the “talent hotspots” for the delivery of digital services.

“Service delivery automation continues to shape the industry, and we are beginning to see a clear demarcation of leading providers who have witnessed significantly greater impact on the revenue, cost and productivity,” said Salil Dani, vice president at Everest Group. “Best-in-class providers are reporting some remarkable milestones, such as a 24 percent reduction in net headcount addition, cost savings between US$100 to $300 million annually, and up to 50 percent improvement in productivity due to automation.”

Other Key Takeaways

  • The increase in demand continued to be led by the “traditional buyer geographies” of Europe and North America
  • GIC activity was high, with setups concentrated in Europe for buyers looking to leverage the nearshore proposition
  • Overall location activity also remained high with increased center setups in Latin America compared to previous quarters. Interestingly, India’s share in new center setups decreased for the first time in many years
  • Service delivery automation (SDA) adoption is leading to lower headcount addition by leading service providers, compared to 2015
