"While achieving dramatic success in the past five to ten years, the offshore IT services market, and the players competing in this space, are faced with an unprecedented set of economic forces and changing customer needs that is forcing this industry to make dramatic changes in their businesses to ensure both short- and long-term growth," said David Tapper, vice president for Outsourcing and Offshore Services at IDC. "IDC believes that success for these players will reside in their ability to either find niche areas of focus or scale up and provide end-to-end capabilities with stronger local (developed market) presence and a greater focus on outsourced/managed services, which increasingly includes provisioning of services in the form of utility-based offerings."
