  3. 3. Background and scope of the researchBackground of the research The BFSI industry continues to be the largest adopter of the IT Application Outsourcing (AO) services. However, the industry dynamics changed significantly over the last 12 to 24 months. BFSI buyers are facing increasing pressure to drive top-line growth, manage complexity arising out of wide-scale regulatory reforms, and improve profitability by driving greater cost efficiencies. In order to achieve this, buyers are focusing on optimizing their portfolio of AO service providers At the same time, service providers in the BFSI AO space are also ramping up their capabilities, building up scale, and investing in developing and acquiring IP/proprietary solutions. They are also forming alliances, which allow them to undertake and deliver on large-sized, annuity AO engagements. The competitive intensity in the BFSI-AO services space is at an all-time high. As a result, it is becoming difficult to differentiate among service providers based purely on delivery capabilities. It is, therefore, critical to have a comprehensive, well-rounded, and fact-based assessment of service providers’ BFSI-AO value proposition In this research, we present detailed profiles of the 20 service providers featured on the insurance AO PEAK Matrix. Each service provider profile provides a comprehensive picture of their service suite, scale of operations, domain investments, and delivery locationsScope of this reportThis report includes detailed profiles of the following 20 service providers1: Insurance AO PEAK Leaders: Accenture, Cognizant, CSC, IBM GS, and TCS Insurance AO PEAK Major Contenders: Capgemini, CGI, HCL, HPES, iGate, Infosys, L&T Infotech, MindTree, MphasiS, Syntel, and Wipro Insurance AO PEAK Emerging Players: Hexaware, Mahindra Satyam, Softtek, and Unisys1 The scope of the report covers service provider information up to December 2011 Copyright © 2013, Everest Global, Inc. 3 EGR-2013-11-PD-0811
