  • Which assumptions are of sufficient importance that a change in the assumption would result in a change in the market forecasts?
  • What impact will developments in this market have on the players in the market?
  • What are the not-to-be-missed opportunities?

"The market for offshore-based IT services appears to be undergoing some fundamental changes that involve maturity of the offshore model, lack of significant differentiation of offshore providers, lack of significant local (onshore) investments, and increasing use of substitute services in the form of cloud," said David Tapper, vice president for Outsourcing and Offshore Services at IDC. "To overcome these headwinds, offshore providers will need to make some strategic decisions and investments in determining what their business models need to look like in the long term, whether that involves staying the course, transitioning to a cloud-based service delivery model, or creating new businesses that leverage their core competences in engineering such as creating the next ISV business for cloud service providers or ramping up R&D/product engineering services."
