This IDC study identifies IDC's Outsourcing and Offshore Services research team's top 10 predictions for the outsourcing and offshore services marketplace for 2013. It highlights the major trends and critical developments that will affect the wide spectrum of services across both IT and business process outsourcing (BPO) services.
"IDC believes that while in 2013 customers will continue to shift to using cloud services as their means of outsourcing, the fundamental business model and ecosystem of traditional outsourcing will experience some critical changes and challenges," said David Tapper, VP, Outsourcing and Offshore Services at IDC. "Key areas that will impact traditional outsourcing include a move to own the IT 'stack,' a shift of talent pool to higher-level skills while automating lower-end skills, potential price wars undermining traditional contract values, and an expanding pool of vendors that increasingly look like outsourcers but are not referred to as outsourcers such as SaaS, online, ISVs, and telecommunications providers."
