Unisys jumps to third spot in the Lighthouse Services Index

The most high profile mover in this month’s Services Index is Unisys. The firm has boosted its profile amongst analysts with a series of services contracts with Rabobank and City of Chicago. This coupled with some exceptional financial results has helped Unisys to quietly overtake Yahoo which had been occupying the third position in the Lighthouse Services Index for the past 4 months.

TietoEnator, the troubled Nordic IT services vendor, has also got a boost of 5 positions making it the highest gainer of analyst focus this month. However, the boost would hardly be a joy for the company as most of the news being covered by analysts is of the unexpected decline in the profits of the firm.

Keane, which has now been acquired by Caritor Inc., has also enjoyed a good month in our Services Index. The fact that the firm has been ranked amongst the Top Healthcare IT Providers in Healthcare Informatics Top 100 has helped the firm to gain 4 positions this month.

The biggest loser of analyst focus this month is BT Global Services which is now ranked at the 25th position. The fact that the firm has reported a boost of 5% in sales has still not helped the firm avert a 5 position decline in the Services Index. CGI Group has also dropped 4 positions and is now ranked at 31st spot.

Interestingly there has been no change in the membership of the Lighthouse top 25 firms: no new firm has entered the top 25 this month.
