  • Technology & People Analytics Evolving to Support the HR Lifecycle

    Sep 28, 2022, by Jeanine Crane-Thompson

      Earlier this month, the 2022 HR Technology Conference saw more than 400 vendors and 5,000 participants descend upon the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay Hotel & Conference Center. Attendees presented industry trends, learned from colleagues, viewed demos of the latest technologies, and met face-to-face in what felt like a pre-2020 setting. Several key observations from this year's c[...]

The development of this portfolio currently emphasizes further specializ[...]

  • 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[...]

  • Testbirds Prepares for Hypergrowth

    Sep 02, 2022, by Dominique Raviart

      We recently talked to Testbirds, the largest Europe-headquartered crowdtesting firm, founded in 2012. We found Testbirds upbeat after the pandemic. The company had an excellent year in 2020, achieving revenue growth of 30% as organizations, challenged by closed offices, turned to Testbirds to conduct crowdtesting of their digital initiatives. This was followed by another excellent ye[...]

  • What Characterizes Leading Supply Chain Transformation Vendors?

    Aug 30, 2022, by John Willmott

      The pandemic stress-tested many supply chains beyond previous expectations, identifying and magnifying any process shortfalls. The current economic downturn and additional disruption of supply chains by geopolitical factors have further exacerbated the difficulties enterprises face in their day-to-day supply chain management. Accordingly, enterprises are typically seeking increase[...]

  • Cigniti Acquires RoundSqr to Accelerate its Digital Ambitions

    Aug 18, 2022, by Dominique Raviart

      We recently talked to Cigniti about its digital ambitions and its acquisition of RoundSqr. While remaining focused on quality engineering, Cigniti has quietly expanded its capabilities to RPA over the past three years. This extension is logical: RPA shares much with testing, relying on creating and maintaining bots or test scripts. This is the start: Cigniti has broad ‘digit[...]

  • Capgemini’s ESG Services Focused on Scope 3 Carbon Reduction & Advanced Reporting

    Aug 15, 2022, by Andy Efstathiou

      ESG is a hot, but poorly defined, topic. Many firms and investors have started ESG programs, but recent allegations of “greenwashing” and ineffectiveness have undermined confidence in them. So, what are the components of an effective ESG program? ESG is a wide set of dissimilar goals (e.g., carbon emissions reduction is very different than social inclusion). By focusin[...]

  • Enterprises Must Expedite Hybrid Multi-Cloud Initiatives to Drive Business Outcomes

  • WNS Repositions its Data & Analytics Practice to Assist Organizations in Becoming 'Insights-Led Enterprises'

    Jul 28, 2022, by John Willmott

      Analytics has often been run as a series of periodic and siloed exercises. However, to respond to their customers in the smartest, fastest, most efficient manner, WNS perceives that organizations increasingly need to run their analytics always-on, in almost real-time, and on an enterprise rather than siloed basis. To do this and become ‘insights-led enterprises’, organiza[...]

  • Capgemini’s Sogeti Positions QE in the World of IT Sustainability

    Jul 11, 2022, by Dominique Raviart

      There is a big divide between IT sustainability and quality engineering (QE). In IT, sustainability is emerging from a carbon emission niche, expanding from a consulting to an execution phase. In QE, the focus remains primarily on functional automation with continuous testing/DevOps and AI as primary drivers. In short, the two have little in common. As such, we had not anticipated[...]

  • EY Managed Services Driving Increased Efficiency for Clients

    Jun 27, 2022, by Andy Efstathiou

Managed services is EY’s fastest growing line of business, justifying EY’s 12-year-long commitment to this business. Here I look at EY’s managed serv[...]

  • Atos Announces Major Restructure: Analysis

    Jun 15, 2022, by Dominique Raviart

      On June 14, 2022, Atos announced the unexpected separation of its IT infrastructure services unit, Tech Foundation, from its BDS and Digital units. With this move, Atos has aggregated its high-growth and high-profitability units into a new company, Evidian.

      Machine translation has been one of the fastest developing areas of AI in the last five years and has quickly become a target investment for CX services players. As the technology evolves from statistical analysis to the use of neural networks, CX services companies start to benefit at scale. Webhelp has been active in the space for several years, initially through partnerships with [...]

  • Unisys Repositioning for Growth

    Jun 09, 2022, by John Laherty

      NelsonHall recently attended Unisys’ Analyst and Advisor Event 2022 in Boston, MA. As IRL meetings and events begin to resume, it was great to engage with Unisys executives face-to-face once more. The $1.2bn sale of its Federal business to SAIC back in February 2020 is being partly used to fund acquisitions and portfolio investments for Unisys’ digital workplace and cl[...]
