  • Verticalization & Localization Driving Strategy at NIIT Technologies

    May 24, 2018, by Rachael Stormonth

    NelsonHall recently attended NIIT Technologies’ analyst and adviser event in London, and we were keen to get an update on developments at the company since the arrival of Sudhir Singh as CEO. We were aware that the last two quarters have seen a significant increase in the number of large deal signings (five, compared with two in H1 FY18), also that there have been a significant number of[...]

  • SGWI’s GEO Employment Model: Enabling Agile Global Expansion

    May 22, 2018, by Pete Tiliakos

      As businesses today are increasingly operating at a global level, they face inherent complexity and compliance hurdles. Indeed, a recurring finding in NelsonHall’s annual payroll market analysis is that compliance is a key driver for organizations outsourcing payroll. And new regulatory directives such as GDPR are placing yet more compliance pressure on the HR and payroll leade[...]

  • Neeyamo Addressing the White Spaces in HR

    May 18, 2018, by Gary Bragar

      Now in its tenth year, Neeyamo is hitting its stride as a niche global HR services provider. I recently caught up with the company at its first U.S. analyst and advisor event for an update on its HR service lines. Strategic focus Neeyamo aims to ‘address the white spaces in HR technology and services’, including underserved markets and geographies. It positions itse[...]

  • Infosys Builds Foundations of a Successful Open Banking Ecosystem

    May 16, 2018, by Andy Efstathiou

      The banking industry is undergoing significant legal and operational transformation, including the move towards open banking, a regulatory requirement whereby banks open their platforms to third-parties for them to transact business with the banks’ customers and suppliers. Here I look at how Infosys, with its Finacle suite of solutions, is working with banks to support the tran[...]

  • Testbirds Continues to Experiment with its Crowdtesting Portfolio

    May 14, 2018, by Dominique Raviart

      When NelsonHall published the first crowdtesting vendor evaluation in the industry in 2017, it was striking to see how the main crowdtesting players had different strategies and were developing their services in different directions. And crowdtesting continues to surprise by bringing novelty to the testing service industry – an industry essentially based on process and, increas[...]

  • Accenture’ s Teach & Test Methodology for AI Testing

    May 11, 2018, by Dominique Raviart

      In the past three years, testing service vendors have been looking at how to adopt more automation and apply AI to testing. Accenture, meanwhile, has been approaching things from a different angle, looking at how to test AI software itself rather than applying AI to the delivery of testing services. Here I look briefly at Accenture's approach to AI testing, which used a two-ph[...]

  • The Advantages of Building a Bespoke Blockchain Platform

    May 03, 2018, by David Mayer

      For all the discussion in the blockchain solution industry around platform selection (are they choosing Fabric or Sawtooth? Quorum or Corda?), you’d be forgiven for thinking that every provider’s first stop is the open-source infrastructure shelf. But the reality is that blockchain is more a concept than a fixed architecture, and the platforms mentioned do not encomp[...]

  • The End of Telecoms Sector Dominance in CX Services?

    May 01, 2018, by Ivan Kotzev

      For many years, the telecoms sector has been the dominant market for customer experience (CX) services providers. However, over the last few years, consolidation, flat performance, decreasing margins caused by market saturation, new digital models and competitors, and unfavorable regulations (e.g. Eurotariff) have eroded the significance of the telecoms sector for CX services provide[...]

  • Why Digital Onboarding is Essential

    Apr 27, 2018, by Nikki Edwards

      Is your organization already struggling to find the best talent? If so, put yourself in the shoes of a candidate for a moment. Take a look at your organization’s employer branding on your website and social media pages. Do you think candidates would be impressed? Hopefully yes, but many organizations’ employer branding leaves a lot to be desired. Appealing to all possi[...]

  • 6 Ways to Prepare for Cognitive Automation During RPA Implementation

    Apr 23, 2018, by David Mayer

      2017 brought a surge of RPA deployments across industries, and in 2018 that trend has accelerated as more and more firms begin exploring the many benefits of a digital workforce. But even as some firms are just getting their RPA projects started, others are beginning to explore the next phase: cognitive automation. And a common challenge for firms is the desire to begin planning for [...]

  • Is Amazon the Biggest Threat to AWS’ Enterprise Public Cloud Domination?

    Apr 20, 2018, by David McIntire

      Over the last several years, the public IaaS market has grown rapidly, with major public IaaS providers growing at 45% or more annually, as estimated by NelsonHall. However, large enterprises are only moving a small portion of their application landscapes to public cloud, maintaining larger application footprints in private cloud or on-premise environments. This hybrid approach re[...]

  • Atos: North America a Work-in-Progress

    Apr 18, 2018, by Rachael Stormonth

    NelsonHall recently attended the Atos global analyst event in Boston, where we were keen to get an update on topics including: Atos’ strategy for growth in North America, which has new leadership following a rather disappointing 2017 Recent developments and short-term priorities for offerings in the Digital Transformation Factory. It appears to us that, nearly three years af[...]

  • Infostretch: Leveraging AI for Software Test Optimization

    Apr 17, 2018, by Dominique Raviart

      I have touched several times on how AI is being used in the context of software testing for reducing the number of test cases, optimizing coverage, and estimating the number of defects in an upcoming release of an application. And, as AI technology is becoming pervasive, we are expecting more use cases to emerge for software testing soon. We recently had a discussion with Santa Cl[...]

  • Application of RPA & AI to Unstructured Data Processing: The Next Big Milestone for Shared Services

    Apr 12, 2018, by John Willmott

      Shared Services Centers (SSCs) have made progress in the initial application of RPA, gained some experience in its application, and are typically now looking to scale their use of RPA widely across their operations. However, although organizations have often undertaken some level of standardization and simplification of their processes to facilitate RPA adoption, one stumbling block [...]

      Kryon has today launched a new brand presence, along with a new strategic perspective on RPA focused on delivering business benefits. The former Kryon Systems (now simply Kryon) will now be organized around a three-pronged approach the company refers to as ‘Discover, Automate, Optimize’.

  • How Citibank & Unicredit Are Delivering Digital Loan Origination

    Apr 11, 2018, by Andy Efstathiou

      Loan originations are a key part of the digital revolution taking place in the banking industry, and banks have two key goals when they replace their legacy loan origination systems (LOS): Enabling omnichannel delivery of LOS services Reducing time to fulfillment (turnaround time). Long-established banks are adopting digital solutions to achieve these goals with the expe[...]

  • Zalaris: Transforming into a One-Stop-HR-Shop for European Organizations

    Apr 09, 2018, by NelsonHall Analyst

      Over the last year, Zalaris has markedly stepped up its geographic and service expansion journey –  first fuelled by the acquisition of Germany-based Sumarum AG and then with the acquisition of U.K.-based ROC Global Solution Consulting. It’s important to note that Zalaris’ success in the wider Nordic market was also a result of two acquisitions soon after it[...]
