  • Background notes Customers counted are the multi-site, multi-national major accounts looked after by BTGS (hence the 2,500 customer number in UK) The sum of customers allocated to each region is greater than the 8,500 total because we count the number of customers served in those regions. The high proportion of people in UK reflects the fact that we have (a) HQ functions in UK and (b) some of our largest customers (e.g. NHS).
  • Blue bar: Growth rate for global trade, very negative, 8% decline (source EIU and IMF) Very slow and flat recovery next year Now we have reached the bottom of the crisis cycle, best guest we can get Still risks for the recovery Role of the media? Forecasts are self fullfilling prophecy if someone is very influential predicts a downturn it can happen and the other way around The image for the Middle East would be much sharper in ups and downs
  • Different countries are in different positions Despite the recession China is still growing 7% (coming from a double digit growth) Decline in Emerging markets Do not mix decline and recession even if the effects can be the same (ie people losing jobs, factories closing down, etc)
  • CUSTOMER TRENDS: Summary of what is happening from a customer viewpoint: bcs of recession SURVIVAL is KEY, if above that they need to improve their business models Smaller outsourcing deals: mega deals not successful, too complex, now tendence for best in breed suppliers, 4-5 suppliers instead of 1 mega supplier, multisourcing instead of MEGA DEALS outsourcing Short ROI is a prerequisite, need to demonstrate the ROI of the money spent Focus on CORE activities bcs of recession, look at what is CORE for them and avoid non core areas (even at BT) Small nb of stronger player that take advantage of the region, buy assets and increase footprint – Satyan (indirect result of the crisis bcs cannot hide the accounting irregularuties), 3M Consolidation, ex: HP taking over EDS TECHNOLOGY AND SUPPLIER UCC, social computing, the crisis is an accelerator to their adoption REGULATORY, POLITICAL, ECO Slowdown of globalisation KEY trend, even if not advertised, negative trend in global trade 1 st since WWII Protectionism (ie France in automotive sector) IMPLICATIONS Outsourcing, hosting, managed services, demand is increasing Sustainability and GREEN are more and more key Key concern in IT is to reduce operating costs (ie cooling and power sources) have more efficient data centres Significant regulations to reduce carbon emissions Mindshift from customer perspective COMPETITOR Increasing rivalry, smaller profitable deals, less M&A, AT&T still investing in network
  • USE this Reorganisation Write offs: opportunity to clean up your balance sheet the market is open to that you wont stand out Loss of business Trust: many scandals related to bonuses, increase transparency Green issues: still top of agenda Restructuring Organisational restructuring in the form of layoffs Financial restructuring by de-leveraging their financial structures Corporate restructuring through entity consolidation Industry restructuring through the failure and survival of different players and business models Write-offs Assets no longer deemed as core to the business need to be disposed off CEOs will take the opportunity to clean-up their companies, whilst minimising disruption Loss of Business Trust The collapse of some established players has led to a loss of trust on businesses CEOs will need to improve the transparency within their organisations to improve business trust Globalisation Instability Current crisis may result in increased calls for protectionism and reduced global trade CEOs of large MNCs will need to take this into account and set up contingency plans New Regulatory Burden CEOs expect new regulatory burdens to affect their business as a result of the problems highlighted by the current crisis However, there is little visibility into what they will be Green issues CEOS are keen to keep green issues in the agenda despite of the crisis as they consider this to be good for business
  • Use this slide Reduce facilities: ie data center that uses a lot of energy => make them more sustainable Offshoring: new technologies to decrease costs Spend money of customer facing projects instead of internal issues (hence CRM is key) Value of IT in the organisation
  • Network services are an intelligent enabler Customers are almost completely dependant on the underlying network infrastructure to drive their business critical applications. Its these applications such as SAP, Oracle that power business processes like supply chain and logistics. These processes are vital to an organisations business strategy. Ultimately the network touches everything, every user, every server, every function , every site, anything that has any value to an organisation is touched by the network. a lot like the human nervous system in that it sees everything……... The network become the intelligent enabler for the applications, processes, companies strategies. They are all highly interdependent E.G We discussed this topic at a recently seminar at MIT with a number of execs from the manufacturing sector. The head of logistics for one company said they spent 15% of revenue on logistics, which is more than what they spend on operating their factories (incl personnel, utilities ). They spend roughly only 2% of revenue on IT. He admitted that logistics has numerous dependencies on applications and network so small expenditures in IT can result in significant improvements to performance of the logistics function. If applications stop working so does the business. If applications stop working customers can’t……..Take orders, they cant ship, they cant bill, they cant execute supply chain functions, process bank deposits. The business cost of application downtime can be significant There is a misconception in the industry – not helped by the OSI 7 layer model, which implies that the network and applications are independent of each other. It is a misconception that Applications teams can live in their world and the network manager can live in their world, that new application developments ‘over the wall’ to the network manager and they are expected to make it work. This is not true…the applications and network are intimately connected. Also the performance of business processes and strategies are intimately connected to the performance of Applications and the underlying network. Without a reliable IT and network infrastructure – applications are little more than expensive space on a server.

  • BT adopts a consistent methodology for delivery of services. The evolution of IT and network technology over the past decades has resulted in most IT estates being constructed of fragmented, high maintenance solutions. The opportunity provided by consolidation in both IT and communications technology around IP and associated Web 2.0 software technologies enables BT to offer a transformation solution to customers that reduces complexity, overhead, operational costs and enhances performance. This transformation is carried out over three phases. The pace of the transformation is dictated by the scale and complexity of the transformation, but the consistent methodology and approach enables clear understanding and cooperation between BT its customers and its partners. BT starts by consolidating or transitioning multiple supply agreements to one single BT contract therefore removing supplier management complexity whilst reducing risk and costs. With contract supply now with BT, we start to transform and converge these multiple suppliers onto a single BT Global MPLS, this further reduces cost, improves productivity, improves business flexibility and enables the enterprise to react to business change faster, and speed new services to market. In the Extend stage of our approach we start to truly innovate – here we tune the infrastructure to enable the client to better compete and improve customer experience as well as enabling client resources to focus on value creation versus managing complexity. The underlying objective of our approach is to reduce the total cost of ownership whilst improve business agility enabling our client to better compete and grow.
  • Let me take you through the following example which illustrates how inefficient communications can impact the bottom line of your business. We can show directly, how today’s communication experience can result in slow decision making, missed deadlines and lost time that could otherwise be spent generating value for your business. First of all, the number of communication devices & apps employees use is proliferating. According to research the average business person uses over 6 types of communication devices Employees are also traveling more. The average organization at least 47% of staff travel at least once per month. In an effort to reach coworkers, research shows that on a Daily basis, 52% of employees needed to use multiple methods in order to reach them. (Weekly 32%, Occasionally 12%) As a result employees are unable to reach coworkers on the first try… research indicates that this is 70-80% of the time, every single day The result this ends up in delays & missed deadlines. (Weekly 13%, Monthly 22% and Quarterly 12%.) Which of course, impacts the bottom line TRANSITION: What businesses really need and people really want is a simpler more efficient way of staying in touch.
  • Large organisations today face the challenges of increasingly complex contact centres. Businesses must juggle customers communicating via multiple channels across multiple sites. Agents with different skills are spread across numerous geographic and departmental locations. Contact centres need to run multiple systems efficiently and manage data compliantly. BT’s Generating Smart Customer Interactions (GSCI) can help. Businesses must juggle customers communicating via multiple channels across multiple sites (telephone, email, SMS, online). Agents are spread across numerous geographic and departmental locations (outsourced contact centres, home-based workers, different departments within same organisation). Contact centres need to run multiple systems efficiently (WFO/WM/PM) and manage data compliantly. Agents have different skills (language, sales, marketing, service).
  • But using the data you have within your contact centre can really take you to the next level. Can use to improve experience at point of contact.
  • So how can BT Global Services help our customers achieve profitable growth? The Smart 2020: Enabling the low carbon economy in the information age report sums up perfectly the role we can play in delivering sustainable business solutions to our customers “ While the sector (ICT) plans to significantly step up the energy efficiency of its products and services, ICT’s largest influence will be by enabling energy efficiencies in other sectors, an opportunity that could deliver carbon savings five times larger than the total emissions from the entire ICT sector in 2020” In effect we are able to deliver sustainable business through our Networked IT portfolio...
  • Crowdsourcing: getting information from the crowd (ie Wikipedia) prediction markets: bets on things happening or not, predict the future, ie sales forecasts could be more accurate than traditional way Augmented reality: like virtual reality, wearing glasses with ads , when you walk along a store you get a special discount according to your needs

  • Worldwide IT outsourcing contracts analysis Source: IDC, May 2009 Analysis based on IDC’s IT contracts database on deals >$10m Worldwide TCV and growth rates – 11 year view
    • Worldwide TCV ($10M+ deals) reached $115B, resulting in a decline of 17% in 2008, though levels are still higher than all years previous to 2005.
    • $10M+ deals declined in TCV and across all metrics due to the economic downturn and deferring of contracts.
    • Large decline in TCV and small decline in number deals indicates customer preference for smaller deals.
    • Rise in the number/value of deals with global scope as global enterprises look to generate savings via a federated IT approach.
    • Average TCV in Government has fallen by 30% from 2007 to 2008. Mega deals numbers fallen from 38 in 2007 to 11 in 2008.

    Outsourcing Deal Analysis
  • Trends driving the ICT demand (1/3) Source: IMF, Reuters; industry reporting Market Trends Improve Operational Efficiency IP/IT, Optimise Network Centric Security For the first time in decades, growth in world trade will lag behind growth in world GDP. This implies that the share of trade in world GDP will decline - a poignant illustration of ‘stalled globalisation’. Globalisation is a major driver of ICT needs, especially connectivity and integration, in the enterprise world; stagnation in the activity is likely to inject passivity in the market Stalled Global-isation Key Trends Implications Positive/ Negative Potential Head -line Props Severe Global Economic Recession Under the scenario, ICT projects with longer pay-back period are likely to be deferred in most industries, impacting growth rate of the overall ICT market negatively. ICT trend in emerging countries is likely to face significant downward pressure. The abrupt change in scenario will negatively impact on ICT opportunities. Improve Operational Efficiency IP/IT, Make Contact Centres Efficient Focus on Operational Efficiency and Cost Reduction Technology leaders are faced with the challenge of trimming the fat out of their budgets. Gartner’s CIO survey on their top10 business priorities for 2009, 'Business Process Improvement' and 'Reducing Enterprise Cost' ranked 1 st and 2 nd respectively. ICT is seen as a major tool for improving business processes and operational efficiency; the focus is most likely to contribute positively to the ICT market revenues Improve Operational Efficiency IP/IT Downtrend in M&A Activity So far this year, the merger volumes in Americas, Europe, Asia Pacific and Japan have declined by 30%, 47%, 34% and 11% respectively. M&A is a major driver of ICT needs, especially connectivity and integration needs; the downtrend in the activity comes as a major offsetting factor from the global ICT opportunity standpoint. Improve Operational Efficiency IP/IT, Unify Comms
  • Trends driving the ICT demand(2/3) Source: Gartner; Forrester; industry reporting Market Trends Unify Comms, Improve Operational Efficiency IT and Optimise Network Centric Security Process and technology strategies in 2009 will focus on risk standardisation, increasing oversight, performance and risk management coordination, evolving expectations of corporate responsibility and big shifts in governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) technologies. Increasing focus on compliance management should impact the overall ICT market positively.

  • Analyst predictions – business focus (1/2) Predictions IDC predicts global IT spending growth to slow to 2.6% (half of 2008's 5% growth rate). The slower growth will effectively strip out $35 billion of potential growth in 2009 and will take three years for IT to return to 2008 growth rates. As a result of this poor growth environment, it will be critically important for suppliers to look below the surface and more quickly and decisively orient their businesses toward customer segments that are spending at above-market growth rates, and toward offerings with benefits that are magnified in a down market. Whether the economy is running low or high, finding qualified people remains a full-time pursuit. When it comes to the types of expertise they will seek in the future, CIOs expect to increase expertise in information design, business process design, and relationships and sourcing, while decreasing their expertise in technology infrastructure and services. Growth opportunities for telecom services in mature economies can come only from a wide range of advanced digital services. In emerging markets, carriers need to innovate to face competition and support advanced users, but they can only invest marginally in the more advanced services needed in mature economies. Services will include mobile messaging m/presence, advertising, information services, video and identification. Global growth will be cut in half and take three years to come back Through 2012, business demand for IT-driven growth and innovation will outstrip the supply of qualified people to fulfil it. Through 2012, truly global companies offering communications and cloud computing will show more revenue growth than their peers not offering these services.

  • Analyst predictions – business focus (2/2) Predictions Outsourcers will look to make strategic investments, part of which will be acquiring (or merging with) other services firms with the goal of achieving the extension of capabilities, ensuring scalability for growth, pursuing more strategic investments for long-term growth and competitive advantage. IDC believes that with the economic downturn, the services industry will enter a new phase of restructuring over the coming years, with these host-based models becoming a more focused option for meeting customer outsourcing needs. In the last decade, Indian service providers and traditional service providers have been competing in the market while focusing on filling their respective delivery gaps. As Indian providers seek new revenue growth opportunities, the potential for acquiring an indigenous European service provider versus organic growth presents a favourable option in terms of speed, access to an existing client base, local country presence, and optimizing complementary strengths. The capital crisis will further exacerbate consolidation in the telecom sector, stimulating more mergers in all regions. Telcos will expand aggressively into cloud services. The emerging cloud services delivery model presents a once-in-a-generation opportunity for the telecom industry to accelerate what they've attempted do for decades with limited success: diversify into broader business and consumer value-added services Outsourcing services market to consolidate and restructure By 2011 a large Indian service provider will buy a large European service provider.

  • Analyst predictions – technology focus (1/2) Predictions The purpose of UC is to expand the scope of traditional coms possibilities. IDC believe UC will change the way companies do business internally and externally, and ultimately the coms culture of companies. This means that UC will shape enterprise coms, infrastructure, and related services for many years to come. The impact will be seen in the changing nature of enterprise telephony (with software becoming more dominant), business applications, enterprise mobility, and in consulting, integration, and managed services. As part of outsourcing engagements, customers will increasingly look toward new technologies (e.g., virtualization, Web services, and unified communications) and service models (e.g., SaaS, cloud/utility computing, hosting, and homeshoring) to support customers' need to drive down costs as well as improve quality of service and operational capabilities. Most organizations are already using, piloting or investigating at least some social software such as social networking tools, wikis. Although awareness, interest and willingness to deploy social software will continue to increase, several factors will prevent large organizations from investing in broad pre-integrated suites of social software functionality for use by all their employees such as uncertainties about business benefits Unified communications will change the way companies do business Acceleration in offering new technologies and new delivery options as part of outsourcing engagements By 2012 more than 30% of large organizations will have deployments of social software suites available to all their employees Source: Gartner Forrester, IDC and Industry Reporting
  • Analyst predictions – technology focus (2/2) Predictions According to IDC's 2008 European WAN Manager survey, the overall number of companies that expect to be using legacy data network services at the end of 2009 is, unsurprisingly, down on 2008. The number of companies expecting to use carrier Ethernet services is 15% higher, making Ethernet the only service to see any significant increase in customer numbers. Awareness initiatives by the MEF and individual providers will further highlight the attractiveness of Ethernet services in 2009. With the global economy on hold, enterprises are seeking to maximize efficiency, reduce capital spending, rationalize assets and infrastructure, and control opex. In the datacenter, this translates into a continued increase in the use of blade servers, looking for energy efficiency gains, higher utilization rates, datacenter consolidation, and greater use of third-party datacenters in the form of collocation. Virtualization is becoming standard on x86 servers in the datacenter, and will be accelerated further by the current economic situation, as companies seek efficiencies improvements. The emergence of cloud computing will up datacenter requirements from both enterprise and service provider customers and will, again, be stimulated by the credit crisis; in absolute size, however, it will remain a small part of the market in 2009.
