The 2009 Global

Services 100

hat many of the turbulent events in global economy unfold-
ed in 2008 made this year’s Global Services 100 survey an
interesting exercise. The year 2008 was not particularly bad
for the global services industry, an industry that experiences
a lagging economic impact because of the long decision-making cycles.
The industry did exhibit enormous latency for a good part of the year. It
was only toward the end of the year that deal flows actually slowed.
Service providers started tightening up on costs after the first quar-
ter but planned investments continued. By the third quarter, companies
started to “conserve” resources even as the inclement economic weather
posed many challenges like credit crunch, volatility, currency crisis and
such. We could see many of these aspects in a very manifest manner dur-
ing the survey. Through the year, our various interactions with the service
provider community gave us a very good sense of the challenges faced and
how individual companies responded.
During a period of economic boom, such a survey as the Global Servic-
es 100, looks at how well the companies took advantage of the tailwinds.
During a period of economic slowdown, the survey looks at how well the
company met the headwinds. So, who won?
Companies such as TCS, Symphony, and ACS in IT services; Genpact,
Sitel, Convergys in BPO; Luxoft, Neoris and Neusoft in emerging geogra-
phies; and HCL in human capital development made the charts. It does
not mean that the others achieved any less. In fact, there are numerous
pockets of excellence in the global services industry that is beyond the
scope of such a macro industry survey. Most of the categories we had this
year was hotly contested and deciding the winner was a challenge.
Global Services and neoIT would like to thank all the companies who
opted to participate in this year’s survey. And congratulations once again ED NAIR
to all the companies who made it to the 2009 Global Services 100 and Top
10 across the eleven categories. GS ed@cybermedia.co.in

2008 was an unusual year. Business concerns such as recession and currency
fluctuation became the highlights of the last two quarters. Hence, sourcing
activities slowed down; consolidations happened in unexpected ways; leading
providers posted losses like never before. In all, the outsourcing world took a
new shape. Many such trends are tapped in 2009 Global Services 100 survey
conducted by Global Services in conjunction with neoIT, an advisory firm. A
