The most high profile gainer in this edition of the Lighthouse Outsourcing Index is Accenture which has moved up 2 positions and is now ranked 3rd. Considered to be one of the top vendor for application outsourcing the firm has also come under the spotlight as analysts try to determine the impact of recession on its financial results.
Atos Origin is up 5 positions and is the biggest gainer in this bi-monthly edition of the Outsourcing Index. It has signed a contract with KAS Bank to handle mainframe services and is now ranked 15th. Cognizant is also up 3 positions and is ranked 11th. It seems that the Lighthouse Outsourcing Index is not the only list that Cognizant is climbing well. It has moved up 143 places in the Fortune 1000 list and has been ranked 51 on the BusinessWeek InfoTech 100 for 2009.
Satyam and BT Global are the top losers as both firms have dropped 7 positions. BT Global Services has become a major loss making unit for BT and is now ranked 22 in the Outsourcing Index. The drop in Satyam’s ranking is understandably due to the decline in analyst interest after the firm’s acquisition by Tech Mahindra.
