This has led to higher focus on packaged solutions in Europe Deal size in terms of Volume of work Large number of big deals Relatively lower number of big deals Difficulty in out – tasking due to lower volume of out-tasking work Type of Contracts More contracts on T&M Higher proportion of Fixed Price contracts Europe is ahead of USA in multi-year Fixed Price contracts for transformational outsourcing Currency $ becoming weaker against major global currencies € and £ have appreciated against $ in the last couple of years Profitability of IT vendors strongly relying on US market is getting impacted.
