CSC Positioned in “Leaders” Quadrant of Leading Industry Analyst Firm’s Communications Outsourcing and Professional Services Report
News Release -- January 25, 2012
FALLS CHURCH, Va., Jan. 25 – CSC (NYSE: CSC) announced today that it has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of the new Gartner report, “Magic Quadrant for Communications Outsourcing and Professional Services.” The report examines 19 vendors of IT services to support, operate and manage business communications systems and networks worldwide. CSC is one of six companies to be classified as “Leaders.”
According to Gartner’s Communications Outsourcing and Professional Services report, “Outsourcing the ongoing operation and support of connectivity and communications systems to third-party vendors continues to gain significant traction among businesses of all sizes. Gartner forecasts that the global market for communications outsourcing will have a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5 percent from 2010 through 2015.” The report goes on to say, “The fastest-growing markets for managed services and outsourcing related to corporate communications will be in Asia/Pacific and Latin America, which will have CAGRs of 9 percent and 16.4 percent respectively from 2010 through 2015. While the demand for managed services and outsourcing contracts related to networks and communications systems continues to grow, the market in 2011 is challenged to provide consistent and acceptable service levels.”
“CSC has seen significant growth from our communications, network connectivity and mobile outsourcing solutions in all regions over the last 18 months. We fully expect this trend to continue as more companies invest in transforming their business processes to include unified communications, collaboration and mobility capabilities,” said Nick Wilkinson, global president, market and product strategy, CSC Managed Services Sector (MSS). “We believe this positioning is recognition of our growth, strong vision and flexible solutions. Our ability to integrate multiple vendor platforms and deliver solutions on an operational expenditure model is key to helping companies adopt emerging communications technology.”
The report was authored by Eric Goodness and Christine Tenneson.
