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.
A new study reveals 30 percent of Americans have savings and investment levels that make them viable prospects for long term care insurance.
Los Angeles, CA, January, 2013 –(PR.com)– While millions of aging Americans face the risk of needing costly long term care services, the market for private long term care insurance can be well defined based on income and savings according to the director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance.
“The aging of America makes long term care a universal issue and risk that impacts millions of families but long term care insurance is not the universal solution for all,” explained Jesse Slome, executive director of the American Association for Long-Term Care Insurance. The head of the national trade group spoke earlier this week to major distributors of the insurance product. “There is a very defined segment of the population who can afford, who have the savings to protect and who can health qualify for this coverage.”
