Razor-sharp Solution Sizing for IT Services – How to Ensure Competitive Pricing | Webinar

ON-DEMAND WEBINAR

Razor-sharp Solution Sizing for IT Services – How to Ensure Competitive Pricing

There is clear intentionality as IT applications and infrastructure move to managed services, a shift that the global challenge to find talent across industries accelerated.

Pricing model asks are now moving from simple day rates to more complex pricing constructs, such as pricing for agile pods, weekly pricing, fixed fee, and output and outcome-based pricing. In such scenarios, getting the solution sizing right is often the difference between wins and losses in competitive deal scenarios.

Within a managed services model, providers will also need to correctly translate these underlying solution considerations and the value they bring to the client to ensure that the solution is evaluated for its true merit.

 

What questions will the webinar answer for the participants?

  • Why is razor-sharp solution sizing so critical?
  • What are the important parameters to keep in mind?
  • What are the common pitfalls to avoid to ensure a competitive fee profile?

Who should attend?

Output-Based Pricing in Application Services: Adoption in the As-a-Service Economy | Webinar

60-minute webinar to be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019 | 9 a.m. CDT, 10 a.m. EDT, 3 p.m. BST, 7:30 p.m. IST

Download the Presentation

Despite decades of outsourcing experience, pricing models continue to be input-based, leaving little to no incentive for the sourcing teams to change or for service providers to propose new options. As the inexorable march toward the as-a-service economy continues, the input-based model is increasingly less effective in some areas. An output-based services consumption model is better suited to the overall cloudification of the IT estate.

In this session, Everest Group’s Pricing Assurance team leaders will explore adoption of output-based models and offer insights on pitfalls to avoid if you’re considering this an approach. We’ll also introduce the different output-based benchmarks we see being contracted in IT application services.

Specifically, we’ll answer these questions:

  • What are the distinct advantages of output-based pricing?
  • What key metrics are being tracked across application services engagements?
  • Where do we see early adoption of output-based pricing, and how should we drive behavior toward more widespread adoption?
  • What are the typical guardrails enterprises should have in place?

Who should attend, and why?
Sourcing, procurement, and vendor management executives, pricing/commercial leads, sales leads, and solution/delivery heads who want to understand when and where adoption of output-based pricing is taking place as well as pitfalls avoid.
