Bankruptcy news helps BearingPoint move up in the Lighthouse Outsourcing Index

Lighthouse Outsourcing Index - March 2009The top gainer this month in the Lighthouse Outsourcing Index is BearingPoint which has gone up 5 positions. Mentions about the firm in analyst reports have shot up due to news of the firm filing for Chapter 11 protection in US. It would be interesting to see how the firm restructures its operations to ensure least possible disruption to its existing clients and develop new services offerings. Fujitsu Services which has launched a new business analytics service aimed at retailers has also moved up 3 positions and is now ranked 4th.

Atos Origin has shown the biggest decline this month and has dropped down 4 positions to be ranked 20th. It has improved its profile as a top systems integrator and while that has not helped it in the outsourcing index it hopefully improve its ranking in the Lighthouse System Integration Index due next month. Accenture which managed to jump up in the DiversityInc Top 50 Companies List for Recruitment and Retention has dropped in the Lighthouse Outsourcing Index by 2 positions and is ranked 5th.
