3 Executive Summary: Key Findings Vendors invest in vertical-specific and next-generation IT services; however, commoditization exerts downward pressure on revenue growthIT Services* Vendor Trends for 1Q14Performance: Average trailing 12-month (TTM) IT services revenue grew 1.1% year- to-year in 1Q14, lower than the 1.5% year-to-year growth in 4Q13 and the 3.5% year- to-year growth in 1Q13. To counter slowing IT services growth, firms are investing in sales initiatives and transforming their portfolios to provide vertical-specific solutions and emerging technologies that encompass developed or acquired IP.SOURCE: PPTBACKGROUNDS.NETService lines: Vendor emphasis on embedding growth offerings such as cloud, mobility, big data and analytics, security, and social media into their core consulting and systems integration (C&SI) offerings accelerated C&SI TTM revenue growth from 1.5% year-to-year in 1Q13 to 2.1% year-to-year in 1Q14. Commoditization of traditional IT services and businesses shifting to cloud environments continue to hinder legacy IT outsourcing (ITO) revenue streams. In 1Q14 ITO TTM revenue declined 1.1% year-to-year in contrast to 0.8% growth year-to-year in 1Q13.SOURCE: BLOG.ENTREPENUERARTS.COMGeographies: India-centric vendors’ regional expansion in EMEA through investments in resources, offerings and alliances helped improve revenue share in EMEA. Average EMEA TTM revenue shifted from a 2.1% year-to-year decline in 1Q13 to 2.5% year-to-year growth in 1Q14. APAC average TTM revenue declined by 4.8% year-to-year in 1Q14, down from 4.4% year-to-year growth in 1Q13, due to slowing economic growth in China, India and Australia.SOURCE: FREEWORLDMAPS.NET*IT services include consulting and systems integration (C&SI), applications outsourcing (AO), IT outsourcing (ITO) and business process outsourcing (BPO). IT services market growth is determined on the basis of the 30 vendors included in TBR’s Professional Services Business Quarterly coverage. The growth rates represent trailing 12-month comparisons and compare 1Q12-4Q12 and 1Q13-4Q13 periods.
4 Executive Summary: Market Overview and Market Leaders TCS’ emphasis on digital offerings and a rebound in spending in Europe led the firm to the most revenue growth among benchmark services vendorsNote: Bubbles indicate YTY revenue growth and arrows indicate directional change relative to the year-ago quarter (accelerating or decelerating growth).TCS’ investments in R&D and strategic partnerships such as those with Microsoft Business Solutions ramp up the firm’s capabilities to meet the supply-side demand for digital transformation solutions spanning cloud, mobility and big data. However, to sustain its double-digit revenue growth in FY15, TCS will need to hire and acquire more tech- savvy consultants to help competitively tout its portfolio across mature and emerging markets. As TCS increases its focus on these opportunities, adding consultants will help it capture multiple digital-focused deals that support overall sales.Fujitsu, despite its announcement of a Global Delivery Organization, continues to report TTM revenue declines, still challenged by its long-standing inability to build and expand revenue streams outside Japan. Fujitsu’s business is more seasonal than its peers’ due to its reliance on hardware and IT to sell accompanying IT services, thus affecting its TTM growth.
5 Executive Summary: Market Overview and Market Leaders India-centric firms lead peers in growth and profitability by meeting the need of clients in Europe to reduce costs using nearshore delivery centersGrowth and Profit LeadersCGI continued to register the positive revenue impact of its 2012 acquisition of professional services peer Logica, putting it in the lead position in 1Q14 TTM services revenue growth, despite posting its second consecutive quarter of sequential revenue contraction. TBR expects CGI will slip further in growth rankings in 2Q14.Cognizant registered strong year-to-year revenue growth, benefiting from 2013 large-scale outsourcing wins and recent consulting acquisitions that accelerated expansion in Europe. Cognizant adhered to its strategy of reinvesting profits over its target 19% to 20% margin range in growth initiatives such as cloud and analytics technologies, global delivery expansion, and niche acquisitions such as Itaas Inc., a digital video solutions company headquartered in the U.S.
6 Executive Summary: Market Overview and Market Leaders Revenue growth and profitability laggards are investing in automation and improved productivity to reduce service delivery costsGrowth and Profit LaggardsTo improve profitability, Fujitsu needs to better automate its processes and delivery and further consolidate its workforce while better utilizing offshore labor. TBR expects the tasks will take at least one year to pay off as the company struggles with shifting to a global delivery model.CSC’s high level of exposure to contracting federal IT services budgets combined with its migration of commercial clients to lower-cost, higher-value cloud-based infrastructure yielded four quarters of revenue contraction. Improved activity from CSC’s commercial business will help mitigate revenue declines in the government business in 2Q14.IBM GS’ revenue remains challenged by declining global sales and competitive pressures brought on by low-cost firms. The company identifies and invests in industry disruptors and technologies to realign its business to grow revenue and profit. IBM accelerated investments in 1Q14 to build out technology initiatives such as BlueMix, MobileFirst and Smarter Commerce.
7 Executive Summary: Market Overview and Market Leaders India-centric vendors gain market share by leveraging low-cost global service delivery capabilities to offer competitively priced IT solutionsNote: Bubbles indicate YTY revenue growth and arrows indicate directional change relative to the year-ago quarter (accelerating or decelerating growth).The positive effect of CGI’s acquisition of Logica diminished during 1Q14, leading to a drop of 5,910 basis points in TTM revenue growth from the year-ago quarter. However, CGI still led all IT services firms in the benchmark as the acquisition still impacts TTM revenue growth.TCS had a strong close to its fiscal year, delivering robust, broad-based revenue growth of 15.2% year-to-year in 1Q14 and 16.2% for FY14 against the year-ago compare. The firm gained momentum in continental Europe, where it registered 36.1% year-to-year growth in FY14 as the demand for cost-saving transformational solutions from budget-conscious clients in Germany, France and Nordic countries drove regional signings.
8 Executive Summary: Market Overview and Market Leaders Revenue and growth leaders are leveraging next-generation IT offerings and investments in European expansion to solidify their top positionsIBM GS: IBM drives its service business through its Global Business Services unit due to the demand for digital transformation via next-generation applications and IT environments. Conversely, IBM’s Global Technology Services unit poses challenges for overall services revenues owing to the erosion of legacy ITO due to cloud.HP Services: HP Services ranks second in TTM revenue as a result of its sheer size and global footprint. Revenue decline is decelerating, however, as the company builds out its portfolio to better align with market trends.Accenture: Maintaining its lead in the market will depend on the firm’s ability to leverage and synchronize growth platforms such as digital, strategy, technology and BPO at a pace faster than the converging IT services market.CGI: Industry-leading TTM revenue growth reflects the addition of Logica’s revenues to CGI financials, providing favorable year-to-year compares. Western Europe, particularly the U.K., served as an engine for organic growth as higher-value service offerings resonated with clients in the region.Cognizant: Growth was broad-based across industries and service lines, primarily driven by Europe, aided by recent onshore consulting acquisitions and large-scale outsourcing contracts won in 2H13. TBR expects growth will decelerate in 2Q14 as longer decision cycles for new deals in the pipeline delay revenue recognition until 2H14.Capita: Capita delivered double-digit revenue growth thanks to its market focus in the U.K. and enhanced capabilities gained through integration of the slew of M&As the firm pursued over the past three years. The firm won deals with public and private sector clients for a total of £1.1 billion in 1Q14.
9 Executive Summary: Market Overview and Market Leaders Client migration to cloud-based IT systems drives growth for consulting and AO but leads to ITO revenue declines due to cannibalizationC&SITop Revenue: IBM GS, $20.4BTop Growth: CGI, 48.2% year-to-year*Client migration to cloud-based ecosystems and mobile platforms will continue to drive consulting and integration services. Vendors will look to embed growth technologies such as cloud, mobility, analytics and social media into core C&SI offerings. Enterprises will continue to build onshore delivery resources and invest in training programs to enhance their global delivery models and better compete.BPOTop Revenue: Xerox, $10.5BTop Growth: Cognizant, 25% year-to-yearDemand for BPO and services that support cost takeout and improve operational efficiency will drive outsourcing growth. Vendors will expand core BPO (horizontal — F&A, HR, etc.) and industry-specific BPO, and focus on growing in emerging markets in 2014.AOTop Revenue: Accenture, $7.8BTop Growth: SAP Services, 21.7% year-to-yearIncreasing demand for application modernization services will expand AO revenue as clients seek to move traditional applications to cloud and mobility IT environments. The combination of cloud, industry capabilities, geographic reach, and internal IP and tools will help AO vendors maximize revenue and profits.ITOTop Revenue: IBM GS, $23.4BTop Growth: Capita, 544.6% year-to-year*Evolving ITO delivery models, economic conditions and businesses shifting to cloud environments continue to hinder legacy ITO revenue streams. Vendors will establish data centers in APAC and LATAM to capture the increasing demand.Note: Bubbles indicate YTY revenue growth and arrows indicate directional change relative to the year-ago quarter (accelerating or decelerating growth).*The inclusion of acquired Logica and Northgate Managed Services revenues skews CGI’s and Capita’s year-to-year growth figures, respectively, bringing the firms to top spots in TTM revenue growth.9
10 Executive Summary: Market Overview and Market Leaders Economic recovery in Europe drives higher IT services spending in EMEA, while the economic slowdown in China hurts APAC growthAmericasTop Revenue: IBM GS, $25.2BTop Growth: Genpact, 24.7% year-to-yearRevenue from healthcare and financial services industries continues to increase in the Americas but not enough to yield growth in 1Q14. Despite an uptick in public sector signings, the small value of those contracts outweighs the growth in healthcare and financial services. Vendors will look to capitalize on the increased healthcare spending spurred by the Affordable Care Act, while others, including some India-centric firms and Cisco and Fujitsu, invest in Canada to diversify their revenues in the Americas.EMEATop Revenue: IBM GS, $18.2BTop Growth: CGI, 56.6% year-to-year*Vendors will leverage their established footprints and capabilities in faster-recovering central European countries and developed MEA markets to drive revenues and offset pricing challenges across EMEA.Europe-based vendors are increasing investments in big data and analytics, cloud, digital innovation, mobility, and particularly security due to increased demand from clients as they shift from legacy application and IT systems to the cloud.APACTop Revenue: Fujitsu, $18.7BTop Growth: WNS, 58.8% year-to-yearPersistent challenges in China’s business environment will continue to impact IT vendors’ expansion plans in low-cost markets in APAC. Vendors will selectively target M&As that will boost their global footprints in underpenetrated regions such as Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines, where firms such as Cognizant and Atos continue to leverage acquisitions Medicall and WindowLogic, respectively, to expand in APAC.Note: Bubbles indicate YTY revenue growth and arrows indicate directional change relative to the year-ago quarter (accelerating or decelerating growth).*The inclusion of acquired Logica revenue skews CGI’s year-to-year growth figures, bringing the firm to the top spot in TTM revenue growth.10
11 Executive Summary: Other Market Trends Operating margin leaders are bolstering profitability by emphasizing sales of higher-margin, next-generation IT and optimizing their services mixWipro continues to hone its delivery efficiency and quality through the use of platform-based managed services offerings such as ServiceNXT, increasing the firm’s profitability despite smaller deal sizes. Gross profit jumped 20.6% year-to-year to $626 million, and operating margin expanded 430 basis points year-to-year in 1Q14 to 24.5% on the strength of productivity improvements and increased employee utilization.Dell Services’ TTM operating margin benefits from the firm’s emphasis on shifting its work mix from commoditized services to high-value application development and maintenance (ADM) and BPO engagements providing industry knowledge and expertise. TBR expects increased spending on training to educate direct and channel sales staff on the full portfolio of Dell Services solutions will exert downward pressure on the firm’s operating margin in 2014.
12 Executive Summary: Other Market Trends Operating margin leaders are investing in automation, efficiency-enhancing tools and training to drive productivity gainsCisco Services: Cisco Services’ peer-leading margins continued to expand during the quarter, indicating improved efficiency in service delivery as a result of reorganization, automation, leverage of channel partners and reduced variable compensation expenses. TBR expects Cisco Services’ margins will be among the highest in the IT services industry over the next couple of years.Oracle Services: TBR estimates that Oracle Services’ operating margin grew 240 basis points year-to-year in 1Q14, driven by a 54% operating margin in hardware systems support, which was 42.4% of Oracle services revenue. TBR believes that reported 10% annual growth in hardware system product revenue initiated almost 5% annual growth in hardware systems support and, coupled with increased efficiencies, led to an increase of 450 basis points in hardware systems support operating margin year-to-year. Oracle’s position in TBR’s IT Services Vendor Benchmark will continue to improve as the company monetizes investments in hardware and drives increased profitability from hardware support.TCS: TCS remained a leader in TTM operating margin, expanding 200 basis points against the year-ago compare to 29% in 1Q14. Robust margin performance was due to TCS’ ability to successfully manage operational costs and reinvest in its portfolio, arming it with tools and IP that enable the company to stay ahead of its competition. TCS noted in its earnings call that it will give wage hikes as high as 14% to top performers for FY15, and promotions are planned in FY2Q15, but the effect on margins will not be significant.Please contact TBR if you are interested in company-specific go-to-market views, including M&A analyses, alliance analyses, deal analyses or other GTM-related information.
13 Executive Summary: Other Market Trends Vendors build industry-specific IP portfolios to differentiate, reduce reliance on labor-based services and boost revenues and profitsIP-rich industry-related solutions help vendors to differentiate, capture growth and increase marginsTBR AssessmentVendors continue ramping up internal investment in IP-based solutions while purchasing or partnering with niche firms to fill portfolio gaps. Industry-related solutions help IT firms address specific client needs and support growth across service areas such as C&SI and BPO. IP-related solutions enhance vendors’ brand recognition and market differentiation; however, it takes several quarters after its release before new IP contributes revenue.Examples of vendors’ recent investments in industry-specific IP:Accenture and SAP partnered to develop the Business Solutions Group and launch the Upstream Production Operation solution. The Business Solutions Group will coinnovate intellectual-property-driven technology solutions centered on specific industries and in collaboration with select clients. Accenture’s continual investments in its IP assets coupled with the firm’s decision to automate parts of IT infrastructure management services through implementation of IPsoft’s IPcenter solution, will enable Accenture to deliver transformation services and solutions converging business processes and IT.Capgemini is experiencing client interest in its IP-based products and solutions under the Ready2Series brand. The Ready2Series includes industry-specific solutions that provide the firm with opportunities to accelerate long-term revenue growth across verticals and services such as C&SI and BPO.Infosys’ efforts to improve sales efficiency were highlighted by its success in capturing large-scale outsourcing engagements. The firm continued to invest in IP tools such as Process Progression Model, an end-to-end BPO platform, to address the shift in client demand from BPO to Business Process Services.Cognizant looks to expand its presence in the healthcare industry. IP-based solutions enable the firm to differentiate from peers. The firm builds industry-specific IP for the healthcare vertical through a combination of internal R&D and customer cocreation. Cognizant codeveloped an online quoting tool, QuoteNow, with U.S.-based health insurance provider Fallon Community Health Plan. The firm also offers the CareSERV Medical Management Platform, which combines cloud and analytics technologies with Cognizant’s clinical staff to optimize care and utilization management, and the iAlign analytics platform that assists life sciences clients with sales planning.SOURCE: BLOGS.ADOBE.COM13
14 Executive Summary: Other Market Trends IT service providers remain focused on providing solutions to the evolving security needs of their global clientsVendors invest in security services and capabilities to meet the demand for mobile and cloud securityTBR AssessmentSecurity is increasing in importance for clients, driven by the shift of legacy applications and IT systems to the cloud, coupled with enterprise mobility, the Bring-Your-Own-Device trend and public awareness of security breaches.Less visibility of security capabilities positions firms such as Capgemini and Atos at a competitive disadvantage, which they attempt to overcome with new alliances, offerings and security service delivery announcements. At the same time IT service providers such as IBM, HP and Accenture are continually expanding their security practices to attract clients across the IT services life cycle.Examples of vendors’ recent investments in security:Security services emerged as a key interest area for partnering in 1Q14, as IBM looks to shore up managed security offerings that complement its cloud and on-premises infrastructure management portfolios. IBM and CrowdStrike Inc. will launch Advanced Cyber Threat Intelligence Service in 1H14.Xerox’s alliance efforts in 1Q14 were centered around enhancing its offerings by adding new capabilities to security (Authentix) and automation (LabTech, DocuSign) solutions.HP opened a 130,000-square-foot Security Operations Center in Sydney, which will join HP’s U.S. and U.K. security centers.In February CSC released an incident response offering for commercial clients enabling uninterrupted access to CSC’s cybersecurity professionals in case of a cybersecurity incident. In April CSC unveiled a new cybersecurity offering, AppSEC on Demand, which enables organizations to test the security of their software applications in a hosted secure environment that meets U.S. federal and commercial regulatory requirements.Atos plans to make its managed security and cybersecurity services more visible to the market in Atos launched a Security Service Delivery unit at the end of 2013 with a global reach and 24/7 availability. In 2014 the firm is enhancing its cybersecurity offerings and launching services such as Next Generation Endpoint Protection, Cyber Threat Management Dashboard, Cloud Data Loss Prevention and Identity & Access Management as a Service.Capgemini partnered with Unisys in March to resell Unisys’ Stealth cybersecurity software. Capgemini’s security offerings are not visible to clients, with the exception of Sogeti, which has an IT security offerings group. The firm embeds security across consulting, technology services and outsourcing.SOURCE: CFO.COM14
15 Executive Summary: Other Market Trends Canada emerges as a key focus for IT services growth through alliances, acquisitions and organic investments for several IT services firmsVendors’ strategic investments in Canada will position the IT service companies to benefit from the growing need for IT solutions from expanding financial and oil & gas companies in the regionTBR AssessmentFaced with challenging prospects in emerging LATAM and APAC countries such as difficult business environments in Brazil and China, vendors are intensifying their expansion efforts in Canada. Vendors seek growth opportunities from the vast amounts of natural resource companies and continued growth in the financial services industry in the region. TBR expects the pace of investments in Canada will continue to increase through 2014.Examples of vendors’ recent investments in Canada:Cognizant acquired Itaas Inc., a digital video solutions firm headquartered in the U.S. Cognizant will onboard an estimated 200 employees across Canada, the U.S. and India. Cognizant adds next-wave technology capabilities including connected device application development and strengthens its position in the underpenetrated media and communications market.As part of its plan to invest $4 billion over the next 10 years in Ontario, Canada, and create 1,700 new jobs, Cisco is investing $100 million in Toronto, which will be a site for one of four Internet of Everything Innovation Centers. The move signals Cisco’s transition toward becoming a Services-led business, as Toronto will be the North American hub for thought leadership and innovation, facilitating adoption of Cisco technologies and Smart+Connected solutions.Fujitsu is combining alliances, joint ventures and niche applications to increase its global sales and marketing reach. The company extended its Westcon marketing agreement to cover the U.S. and Canada, whereby Westcon will sell Fujitsu’s integrated data center solutions in the region. TBR believes this approach will boost sales, but that larger acquisitions in the U.S. and Europe may be necessary for significant market gains.Wipro’s chairman, Azim Premji, noted in 1Q13 that Wipro planned to hire locally in Canada to pursue opportunities in the oil and gas industry. In 1Q14 the firm highlighted Canada’s financial services vertical as a key growth area as declining natural resource prices are pressuring banks to cut operational costs. Wipro faces competition from top India-centric peers such as TCS and Cognizant, and from up-and-coming players such as Tech Mahindra, which has a broader delivery footprint in Canada and offers similar services.SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA.ORG15
16 Executive Summary: Other Market Trends IT services vendors focus on improving client relationships — best accomplished with client proximity and use of channel partnersVendors invest in sales initiatives to improve client relationships, expand wallet share with key accounts and support revenue growthTBR AssessmentVendors such as Cisco, Unisys and Xerox emphasize channel sales due to the superior margins attributed to shared sales and marketing costs as well as low fixed costs. Capgemini’s culture change to foster client relationships, coordinate efforts globally, offer all dimensions of the firm’s portfolio and leverage its consulting business to generate sales will help it catch up with competitors such as Accenture and IBM, which, in TBR’s view, have stronger relationships with clients.Examples of vendors’ recent investments in sales:Unisys expands channel-led sales to keep sales costs under control and expand coverage of its addressable market. The company generates less than 5% of total revenue from the reseller channel currently, and is partnered with over 60 value-added resellers (VARs). The latest announced channel partnerships, with Hotelogix for the hospitality sector in Kuwait and with Capgemini to expand cybersecurity sales, are indicative of solution areas Unisys will target in 2014.Xerox is attempting to emulate Cisco’s and HP’s channel programs by offering enhanced training and incentives for its partners through a modified Global Partner Program, which provides partners access to Xerox’s tools and expertise.Infosys’ sales strategy will continue to focus on increasing mindshare of end-to-end services capabilities spanning clients’ operational, transformation and innovation needs. Investments in its onshore sales force will enable the firm to tout its IT transformational capabilities and help Infosys regain its status as a premium professional services vendor during FY15. Infosys will seek to adopt a more holistic selling approach by marketing its expertise in delivering high-value, vertical-specific business solutions and developing a market-competitive portfolio as the IT services market evolves.Capgemini’s Account Management Strategic Initiative (AMSI) helps the firm accelerate and diversify its portfolio growth, improve the win rate on big deals, generate more sole-sourcing deals and improve cost effectiveness of its business development efforts. AMSI follows a “One Group” approach, which is to sell the entire Capgemini portfolio and expand wallet share with clients, and offer the Rightshore global delivery model.SOURCE: FOTOSEARCH.COM

19 Executive Summary: Other Market Trends Vendors continue reorganization efforts and hire industry-specific experts to address growing demand in cloud and analyticsTrends and Strategy ChangesHiring levels will continue to fluctuate across IT services vendors. Vendors such as IBM, Xerox and CSC reduced or stabilized headcount in 1H14, and the firms will shift hiring focus to lower-cost labor pools in the latter half of 2014 in addition to hiring people with industry-specific expertise and in growth areas such as cloud and analytics.Vendors hire across the globe to diversify global revenues and increase leverage of low-cost resources for service delivery. Accenture will recruit in APAC, Africa and LATAM to support its growth strategy, while Capgemini’s strategy is to increase its India headcount from 37.3% of total headcount, or 50,000 employees, to 50% in the next three years.Management ChangesCapgemini is grouping its APAC operations in one unit to expand in the local market, and appointed Luc-François Salvador, formerly the CEO of Sogeti, to chair of the new APAC entity.Fujitsu appointed Michael Keegan to lead its business in the U.K. and Ireland, taking over for Duncan Tait, who was recently promoted to head of EMEIA, CSVP, Fujitsu Ltd. In early 2014 Fujitsu announced a restructuring initiative to improve operational efficiency and communication across divisions, which led to nine top management resignations.Infosys’ C-level exits continued, with Senior VP Chandrashekar Kakal, head of the Indian Business Unit, and Chief Compliance Officer Nithyanandan Radhakrishnan resigning in April. In June Infosys appointed Vishal Sikka, former CTO of SAP, as CEO and managing director.
20 Executive Summary: Other Market Trends HCLT’s and TCS’ R&D investments position them to overtake Cognizant, which continued to lead IT services vendors in organic growthHCLT: HCLT has not made an acquisition since 1Q11, instead focusing on expanding its IP through alliances and R&D. The firm targets large-scale transformational deals to maintain double-digit organic revenue growth, winning several infrastructure management and Digital Systems Integration deals in 1Q14.Ericsson: While Ericsson did not make any acquisitions that would impact services revenue in 1Q14, the company’s top line fell 8.7% year-to-year partially due to unfavorable compares with large deals won in 1H13.*ORGANIC REVENUE GROWTH IS ESTIMATED WHEN NOT REPORTED. GROWTH IS IN U.S. DOLLARS. REVENUE GROWTH IS MEASURED ON A YEAR-TO-YEAR BASIS FROM 1Q13 TO 1Q14.
21 Executive Summary: Future Outlook Vendors are building out cloud, analytics and mobility portfolios and expanding low-cost headcount to position for profitable growthKey: Bubble = 1Q14 Vendor Position;Arrow = 2Q14 Expected Vendor PositionAccording to TBR estimates, IT services’ average TTM revenue growth year-to-year will accelerate slightly from 1.1% in 1Q14 to 1.3% in 2Q14. Demand in Europe and North America is gradually improving; however, clients’ hesitancy to invest in transformational projects is hampering growth. IT services growth in 2014 will be driven by companies focusing on incorporating vertical-specific solutions into their operations to boost performance and efficiency. Vendors take advantage of the growing verticalization trend by adding vertical-specific consulting headcount as well as acquiring and developing industry-specific IP. Vendors turn to small niche acquisitions to broaden portfolios, develop unique capabilities and receive immediate revenue boosts; however, some acquisitions take time to engineer, thus challenging revenue growth.
22 Segment Views: C&SIIndia-centric firms are expanding consulting headcount in Europe and the U.S. to capture high-value consulting-led engagementsLeadersThe positive impact of CGI more that doubling its C&SI revenue stream when it purchased Logica in 3Q12 continues to project the company to the front of the pack with 48.2% year-to-year growth of TTM C&SI revenue.Infosys’ expanding sales forces in the U.S. and Europe will drive CS&I revenue growth. However, long-term sales success depends on the firm’s ability to tout its services as a unified entity rather than separate subsidiaries. Consulting, package implementation & systems integration (C&PI&SI) revenue growth decelerated to 7.3% year-to-year in 1Q14 from 12.6% and 27.6% year-to-year expansion in 4Q13 and 3Q13, respectively, due to reportedly muted discretionary spending from mature- market clients. In 1Q14 Infosys won a large-scale engagement to implement an Oracle-based finance ERP transformation platform for SITA, a global air transport IT services vendor, which we expect will fuel segment sales during FY1H15.EMC ended the quarter with a year-to-year TTM growth rate of 16.4%, which was led by the shift in software license orders to subscription-based services within Pivotal. EMC is also realizing an increase in C&SI engagements driven by customer adoption of cloud-related services realized in Pivotal implementation services.
23 Segment Views: C&SIPublic sector spending declines and continued hesitancy by firms to spend on transformational engagements weigh on laggards’ C&SI revenuesLaggardsCSC’s TTM C&SI revenue was down 12.6% year-to-year in 1Q14, as defense and civilian U.S. government agencies continued to pull back on discretionary IT project spending. TBR expects CSC’s shift to a partner-oriented consulting organization within its commercial operations will serve as a partial counterweight to expected contraction of nonoperational federal IT spend in 2014.Convergys aggressively reshaped its portfolio over the past two years to concentrate on its core customer management business. In 1Q12 the firm sold its information management business, which Convergys generated most of its C&SI revenues from, resulting in weaker C&SI capabilities and deteriorating C&SI revenues for 1Q14.

26 Segment Views: ITOVendors are developing cloud-based ITO offerings — replacing traditional engagements with lower-revenue-stream deals, but at a higher marginLeadersEMC’s ITO TTM year-to-year revenue growth of 41.8% was driven by the company’s converged infrastructure capabilities within VCE Vblocks, which enables customers to harness the power of on-premises IaaS. Solutions such as EMC Unified Infrastructure Manager for VCE Vblock Systems provide customers with life cycle management and integrated compliance services.LaggardsPricing pressures in IT and telecommunications services coupled with strict profitability criteria for new business and cancellation of unprofitable deals negatively impacted T-Systems’ ITO revenue growth. T-Systems continues to focus on higher-growth opportunities such as cloud instead of traditional IT systems management. In April the firm sold its subsidiary Individual Desktop Solutions GmbH (IDS), which provides on-site desktop services and solutions, to the Aurelius group.
27 Segment Views: ITOITO revenue and growth leaders are transitioning their ITO sales capabilities to capture more small dealsIBM GS: IBM continues to expand SoftLayer to capture large-scale engagements that counter ITO runoff. In 1Q14 IBM committed $1 billion to develop PaaS and hybrid cloud infrastructure to support cloud-based applications and environments.HP Services: Smaller, more tactical and frequent cloud deals replace large-scale transformations, eroding traditional revenues but improving profitability. HP reported double-digit growth in cloud-related revenue in 1Q14 due to the wider adoption of cloud.Fujitsu: In March Fujitsu developed advanced cloud optimization services that enable end users to automate services and more efficiently manage operations.Capita: In 1Q14 Capita fully integrated IT managed services vendor Northgate Managed Services, which it had purchased in 1Q13, under the name of Capita Managed IT Services (CMITS), impacting the spike in ITO revenue growth. We expect the subsidiary to become Capita’s key ITO revenue contributor and will grow revenues at a pace mirroring or surpassing corporate growth because demand from regional clients for data center managed services is on the rise.EMC Services: EMC relies on the federation and its partner program, which provides EMC customers with partners’ “as a Service” offerings, to continue to drive EMC Services’ revenue growth.HCLT: HCLT maintains double-digit year-to-year ITO expansion by capitalizing on ITO vendor churn in the U.S., Europe and Australia.

We expect Cognizant will leverage its rapidly expanding footprint in the Philippines to capture BPO opportunities in the U.S. healthcare vertical.LaggardsHP’s TTM BPO revenue declined 13.4% year-to-year, partly due to account runoffs and the industry shift to a la carte adoption of Business Process as a Service (BPaaS) cloud solutions, driving down traditional BPO opportunities and shrinking the length and size of contracts.
30 Segment Views: BPOBPO leaders build scale through acquisitions and platforms for quick delivery and drive revenue expansion by adding analytics to increase valueXerox: Xerox continued to dominate in BPO despite the runoff of its government student loan business, which slowed its growth. Xerox’s acquisition of Invoco will help grow BPO in Europe in 1H14.Accenture: Accenture will benefit from the acquisitions of Europe-based ClientHouse and Evopro Group, which targeted capabilities in cloud and embedded software and will transform labor-intensive BPO to BPaaS offerings.Capita: Capita continues to win new business by leveraging M&As that add industry-specific BPO services. In 1Q14 Capita acquired U.K.-based residential mortgage administration services vendor Crown Mortgage Management, which we believe will expand Capita’s offerings within the commercial sector’s financial services vertical.Cognizant: Cognizant leverages Horizon 2 and large-scale, vertical-specific deals in BPO, generating approximately 20% of the firm’s total sales through deals that package BPO with consulting, AO and ITO.

35 Geographic Views: Americas Americas revenue growth leaders leverage vertical-specific expertise to win engagements in healthcare and financial servicesLeadersThe U.S. healthcare and financial services industries continue to generate opportunities for Cognizant, though hesitant spending due in part to recent regulatory shifts caused North America year-to-year revenue growth to decelerate compared to 4Q13 and 1Q13. We believe Cognizant’s acquisition of Itaas, Inc. will enable the firm to broaden its vertical reach in the U.S. to the cable industry.In North America, Genpact expands its onshore sales and delivery presence and targets underpenetrated verticals such as capital markets and healthcare with solutions that aid with regulatory compliance and process transformation.EXL has recently won a transformation project that embeds analytics technology with a U.S. bank. We expect EXL to continue to leverage its industry-specific solutions to differentiate in the marketplace, including successfully deploying EXL Landa’s CareRadius medical management suite for two leading BlueCross BlueShield health plans.

CSC will continue to be a laggard in Americas revenue through due to continued headwinds in the federal IT sector.TBR estimates HP Services experienced a 6.9% year-to-year revenue decline in the Americas in 1Q14 despite winning large deals with DMDC and the Colorado Department of Health Care Policy and Financing, and a high-profile win with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. We believe HP’s embrace of OpenStack will aid the company in rebounding within the Americas to improve interoperability of what were previously disparate customer infrastructures.IBM invests in niche IP-focused acquisitions in the U.S. to bolster the company’s cloud portfolio and entice legacy infrastructure services clients to become cloud clients. The firm recently acquired Massachusetts-based DBaaS provider Cloudant and Atlanta-based marketing automation vendor Silverpop.

Recent consulting acquisitions position the firm well in continental European countries such as Germany and France, where language and cultural customs have made onshore, client-facing resources a prerequisite to serving those regions.WNS is benefiting from the South Africa-based Fusion Outsourcing acquisition in 2Q12. The firm expands headcount in South Africa to meet local market demand and uses its locations in the country to deliver global contracts. In the South African market the firm is doing customer service work, but identifies insurance as an area of future opportunity.
39 Geographic Views: EMEA EMEA laggards invest in cloud, analytics and mobility offerings to capture high-value deals that encompass C&SI and outsourcing componentsLaggardsAtos experienced growth challenges in EMEA in 1Q14, but this performance is in line with Atos’ expectations, and the growth pressures will likely remain in 2Q14. However, TBR expects Atos’ growth to gradually recover in 2H14. Atos’ investments in higher-value services with an emphasis on cloud, security and vertical specialization, largely in C&SI but also starting in ITO, will help the firm ramp up revenue growth through 2016.TBR estimates CSC’s business in Europe was down 9.8% year-to-year on a TTM basis in 1Q14 as overall demand remains soft. Early signs of expansion of IT services spending in Europe toward the end of 1Q14 indicate an improving market for CSC’s operations in the region in 2H14.Aon Hewitt’s U.K. pension consulting and administration business supports marginal EMEA growth, but demand remains weak in continental Europe. We believe the acquisition of U.K.-based consultancy Lorica Employee Benefits in March enhances Aon Hewitt’s HR consulting portfolio and removes a local competitor in one of the firm’s key markets.

The firm won a five-year ADM services contract with insurance vendor Tryg and a BPO services agreement with energy firm Statoil.T-Systems: The firm transforms its portfolio to support digital innovation, but offerings such as cloud are small in revenue share and will not offset revenue declines in the firm’s core Information and Communications Technology business.CGI: The company’s TTM revenue growth in EMEA is a result of integrating U.K.-based Logica, which enhanced the firm’s capabilities, footprint and revenue in Europe. Demand for CGI’s SI and modernization services remained healthy in 1Q14, leading TBR to expect further expansion for the company in the region.Cognizant: Cognizant continues to target opportunities in Europe, where clients are opening up to outsourcing. Recent consulting acquisitions position the firm well in Germany and France, where language and cultural customs have made onshore, client-facing resources a prerequisite to serving those regions.Convergys: The acquisition of peer Stream Global in January expanded the firm’s capabilities in Europe.

We believe Convergys will continue to expand its headcount and operations in the region, leading to further growth in 2Q14.WNS made improvements to its sales team structure by expanding the team across geographies, including APAC, and verticals, strengthening industry-specific expertise. This structure better positions WNS to win business in geographies where the firm was previously underpenetrating the market.Capgemini’s emphasis on strengthening its leadership outside Europe will help diversify its global revenue.
