About this special issue
Users of outsourcing services in Germany, Austria and Switzerland receive for the first time important references and tips for evaluating outsourcing projects to India, the transformation of processes and services as well as for the co-operation with Indian service providers.
India is one of the most important trade partners of the German economy and Indian companies have been a reliable provider of business and IT services for the last couple of years.
The German market for outsourcing services has a current volume of about 50 billion EUR (incl. consulting) and will reach 60 billion EUR in 2015. About 20% of the demand comes from mid size companies (up to 1000 employees) with an expected growth of about 5%. Large companies take about 40% of the market, but show only an average growth. A recent market study shows further that 38% of the companies plan to outsource to offshore destinations or combine onshore and offshore outsourcing.
With this strong trend of outsourcing IT and business services in Germany, Austria and Switzerland, we see at the same time a growing demand for information about outsourcing destinations and for contacts to qualified service providers.
The German, Austrian, Swiss Outsourcing Association is the main information, knowledge and network provider in its region and co-operates closely with the Outsourcing Journal in order to deliver comprehensive information and a qualified network to advisors, providers and other organizations.
