Platform based services

Platform based servicesThe integration of software and business process outsourcing (and increasingly even knowledge services) has been anticipated for a while now. Customers of outsourcing services are moving on from piecemeal outsourcing to transferring ownership of processes to their vendor partners, and prefer not to go shopping for services that can be provided under one roof by end-to-end service providers.

A key ingredient of the integrated offering will be the creation of platforms, especially for back-office and transaction processing services. Platform-based BPO will allow vendors to delinearise growth through large-scale productivity payoffs and pay-per-use revenue models, besides building their own IP. While new platform development is already among strategic plans of most major software companies, acquisitions of companies with proprietary platforms are also picking up. Though acquisitions cannot eliminate minimum investments in capabilities for customisation and backward integration, it can be an option for companies that do not want to build their own platforms from scratch.
