New Research by Constellation Research Analyzes IT Services Market Ahead of NAASCOM

Investment in IP will accelerate Indian IT firms’ growth; Buyers want next gen IT services, outcomes from Indian IT vendors; Report criticizes partnerships with mega software vendors

 

(PR.com)– Constellation Research, Inc., the award-winning research and advisory firm focused on disruptive technologies, announced the publication of “Clients Want Outcomes, Are Indian IT Services Vendors Ready?” by Constellation Research CEO and Principal Analyst, R “Ray” Wang. This report reveals that IT Services firms that invest in Intellectual Property (IP)-based offerings will experience accelerated growth in the next 24-36 months. Research conducted by Constellation Research shows a staggering 80% of clients surveyed prefer ‘outcomes’ rather than technologies or solutions from IT service providers. The resulting demand-side dynamics of this preference will compel services firms to focus on IP versus vanilla offerings.

This “Big Idea” report explores the future of the IT services market and helps buyers understand what to expect from Indian IT service providers. Based on the shifts in the technology purchasing environment, Constellation recommends four business models for Indian IT Services providers seeking to drive non-linear growth. Indian IT services firms can create high-volume, high-value opportunities for themselves by applying differentiated intellectual property (IP) creation, enabling disruptive technology-focused business models, delivering innovation value chains, and leading partner ecosystems.
