  2. 2. editor’s note Facing the New Realities The impact of the turbulent global economy on the growth of the services industry continues to be a widely discussed topic. The other such topic is the possible impact of the political backlash against outsourcing. While the latter can be dismissed as political rhetoric in an election year, the former requires some re-strategizing and deftness on the part of service providers. Growth rates are in single digits in the mature economies and the emphasis is on shorter term, single- function deals. Labor arbitrage is still important and service providers continue to seek low-cost locations. Our conversations with many companies during the GS100 survey re- vealed that while companies are seeking acceleration in revenue growth, profits, and other performance parameters; they are more engaged in acquiring the new capabilities required to address technological and social shifts influencing their customer’s business. n Enterprise software enters a phase of renewal driven by mobility, cloud computing and Software as a Service (SaaS), software manufacturers, and developers are turning Ed Nair, Editor to experts in product development. ed@cybermedia.co.in n Contact center outsourcing is seeing renewed growth with customer interactions moving over to non-voice channels and social media. n The HR space is being redefined with greater breadth of cloud-based offerings rang- ing from recruitment to talent management. The impact of social media in managing workforce also requires major reorientation in terms of policies and practices. n The real hotspot is analytics outsourcing. Developments on the technology side in the form of cloud, big data, and business intelligence tools have simplified the area but there is still the need for data scientists to perform analytics. This makes the case eminent for outsourcing analytics. n With increasing number of organizations demanding application’s functionality as a cloud-based services rather than on-premises infrastructure, ADM vendors are of- fering more technology as subscription-based solutions and “pay as you go” ADM offerings. These shifts require major investments for both organic and inorganic scale up. Mostly, global service providers are rich with good financial reserves. Therefore, there would be a slew of M&A deals when services companies would acquire technology companies to own pieces of technol- ogy that would help them offer differentiated services. The current model of GS100 is based on market performance and leadership, breadth of services, spread of global delivery capabilities, and customer leadership. Next year, we would extend the model to measure how service providers move towards leveraging platforms and solutions to deliver the next wave of business value. Congratulations to all the GS100 companies!

Advertorial Quatrro Global Services– Spearheading BPO Industry to “Beyond the Existing” Quatrro has realized the benefits of first mover by offering state-of-the-art platform based solu- tions to its clients. It’s businesses are remarkably different compared to most of the other players in the industry whose focus continues to be on headcount, utilizing client owned technology for process delivery and cost reduction while Quatrro’s value proposition is primarily centered on utilizing Quatrro owned / customized technology, platform based services and revenue enhancement. Quatrro leads its peers by at least 3-5 years in servicing the mid market through right shore delivery. Stressing that SMB needs are remarkably dif- ferent from large enterprises, Raman says, “Mid market clients are value conscious and actively seek a lower total cost of ownership. Focusing on cost and transformation led value proposition alone will not help the service providers fulfill the mid market needs.
