  • TCS Pace Ports: a Key Asset Underpinning ‘Collaborating for Transformation’

    Oct 24, 2023, by Rachael Stormonth

      NelsonHall recently visited the TCS Pace Port innovation center in Amsterdam, the first Pace Port opened by TCS in Europe in May 2021 following a delay caused by the pandemic.  TCS is not unique in having opened facilities designed to foster collaboration and innovation to address clients' business challenges and new requirements. In itself, the broad concept of the Pace [...]

  • IBM Consulting EMEA: Quietly Confident

    Jun 29, 2023, by Rachael Stormonth

      IBM Consulting recently held a two-day analyst event for its European business (a significant region for IBM Consulting). Against an ongoing backdrop of uncertainty for client organizations in many sectors, the tone overall is quietly confident, buoyed by recent client wins and progress in a number of internal initiatives. At a similar event seven months ago, there were clear emph[...]

  • Infosys Bullish about Europe

    Dec 14, 2022, by Rachael Stormonth

      We recently attended Infosys’ EMEA CONFLUENCE flagship client event and found the company quietly bullish about recent and projected performance in the region. Europe remains a growth market for Infosys Salil Parekh made it clear some years ago that he wanted to grow Infosys’ business in Europe, and the results are there to see. Europe now accounts for [...]

  • IBM Consulting Strengthening Partnerships to Drive Cognitive & Hybrid Cloud Consulting Growth

    Dec 08, 2022, by Rachael Stormonth

      IBM Consulting recently held its first analyst and advisor event in Europe since IBM’s spin-off of its Global Technology Services infrastructure business (now Kyndryl) and the renaming of the former IBM Global Business Services division to IBM Consulting just over a year ago. When IBM had announced its intended spin-off of the GTS division in October 2020, new CEO Arvind Kri[...]

  • TCS Looking to Accelerate Revenue Growth to $50bn

    Nov 28, 2022, by Rachael Stormonth

      In its Q3 FY22, TCS delivered its sixth consecutive quarter of organic growth around the 15% mark. Despite the uncertain macroeconomic background, TCS has a strong pipeline for at least the next two quarters and has yet to see any softening in the market. For example, it was expecting some softening in Europe in the September quarter but instead achieved both increased revenue growth[...]

  • TCS: Taking a Visionary Approach to Sustainability

    Sep 12, 2022, by Rachael Stormonth

    We recently talked with TCS about its stable of offerings for sustainability. Not only does the company have a broad set of offerings, but some of these have been on offer for years – this is not a new area of focus for TCS, which is taking a holistic approach to Sustainability. We note also that the company’s approach to the theme of Sustainability fits neatly in its corporate pos[...]

  • Wipro: ‘Obsession for Growth’

    Dec 12, 2020, by Rachael Stormonth

    With a new Chairman appointed 15 months ago and a new CEO in place for the last four, Wipro has seen a significant changing of the guard – much has been made of the fact that Thierry Delaporte is Wipro’s first non-Indian CEO appointment. The announcements made in a recent event for financial analysts (its first such event in five years) reveal some major shifts happening within the[...]

  • Infosys BPM’s $1bn Milestone & Future Trajectory

    Jun 05, 2020, by Rachael Stormonth

    Infosys BPM has reached its 18th birthday, in many cultures the age of maturity, achieving a major milestone of $1bn in annual revenues. Infosys BPM today is a very different company from its birth in 2002 when it was set up as a JV in India with Citibank, and there have been some significant developments in the last couple of years. We recently caught up with Infosys BPM CEO Anantha Radhak[...]

  • Productizing its Service Offerings is Working Well for Unisys

    Dec 10, 2019, by Rachael Stormonth

    Unisys recently held an analyst/adviser meet in New York; shortly before, it had reported another set of very encouraging quarterly results, with its Services business delivering its sixth consecutive quarter of organic (CS/CC) topline growth. The double-digit organic growth Unisys has achieved in Services this year is market leading (its much smaller Technology business is lumpy by nature) an[...]

  • New Genpact Procurement BPS Strategy Underpinned by Major Personnel Transfer

    Nov 13, 2019, by Rachael Stormonth

    Genpact has signed a procurement BPS contract with a multinational conglomerate to manage a spend of $10bn covering all major categories of indirect spend (except IT) including logistics, FM, MRO, professional services, travel, and contingent labor, globally. The contract is of strategic importance to Genpact in that it involves the transfer of 130 category management and sourcing personnel[...]

  • Atos North America: Back to Growth

    Nov 01, 2019, by Rachael Stormonth

    What a difference a year makes. Atos recently held its second North America business event in Dallas, just under a year since completing its acquisition of Syntel. Last year’s event focused on the newly formed Atos-Syntel organization in North America, and also on how, with a new CEO in place, North America was starting to address some legacy problems and to manage a situation where a[...]

  • Infosys Spreads its Wings from Wingspan to ‘Live Enterprise Suite’

    Oct 17, 2019, by Rachael Stormonth

    The tone at the recent Infosys Confluence Americas event in Arizona was, unsurprisingly, quietly confident: Infosys has delivered five straight quarters of strong CC growth, with its largest sector Financial Services delivering improving topline growth (having been affected by market softness in some areas), Digital now representing over 38% of total revenues, and the order book looking strong[...]

  • Salvino Takes The Helm at DXC

    Sep 14, 2019, by Rachael Stormonth

    The big news this week has been the announcement late on Wednesday of the appointment of Mike Salvino as CEO of DXC Technology, with immediate effect. Mike Lawrie stays as Chairman until the end of the year, whereupon he will retire. Apparently, Lawrie and the board began discussions about a planned retirement about a year ago; Salvino has been on the DXC board since May 23, so he has some kno[...]

  • Atos: Verticalization Key to New 3-Year Plan

    May 08, 2019, by Rachael Stormonth

    Atos’ global analyst event in Boston in April came just a few weeks after its launch of a new 3-year plan ‘Advance 2021’ (Atos Digital Value Advancing Customer Excellence) about which we have written here. Key to Atos’ mid-term and longer-term growth is the effectiveness of its drive to align its operating model to be more industry and client focused. As such, we wer[...]

  • Advance 2021: The Road Ahead for Atos

    Mar 01, 2019, by Rachael Stormonth

    It is a decade since Thierry Breton assumed the mantle of CEO and Chairman at Atos, his arrival marking the end of a troubled period for the company. In that time, the company has improved its profitability (when he arrived, its operating margin was just 4.8% and all service lines were experiencing a deterioration in profitability, so his ambition of a double-digit margin seemed ambitious). Al[...]

  • BearingPoint Looks to Evolve Advisory Model Under New Managing Partner

    Dec 06, 2018, by Rachael Stormonth

      NelsonHall recently attended BearingPoint’s analyst event in Lisbon. As it starts its second decade with a new Managing Partner (Kiumars ‘Kiu’ Hamidian, only the second in the company’s history), the strategy that has served BearingPoint well in its first ten years is now evolving in ways that reflect significant developments in the nature of the consulting ma[...]

  • TCS Business 4.0: Emphasizing Location-Independent Agile & Machine-First Delivery Model

    Nov 29, 2018, by Rachael Stormonth

    A year ago, following a TCS analyst event in Boston, the theme of which was Business 4.0: Intelligent, Agile, Automated, and on the Cloud, we wrote about how TCS’ new service line structure has been designed to support the company’s emphasis and positioning around Business 4.0 (see the blog here) Underpinning its positioning around Business 4.0, over the past year TCS has been e[...]
