"Offshore Services in Europe: Making the Advance" Ian Marriott (Gartner Group, USA) Speaker Information: Ian Marriott

Ian Marriott Research Director Ian Marriott is a research director in Gartner Research, where he is responsible for the external service provider area. His focus is on outsourcing with a particular emphasis on strategic sourcing, emerging markets, offshore outsourcing and the public sector. Prior to joining Gartner, Mr. Marriott worked for IBM Global Services EMEA. He has considerable experience in contract negotiation, service delivery and public sector issues, and has worked on large-scale outsourcing and system integration projects in various parts of the world. Presentation abstract: "Offshore Services in Europe: Making the Advance" This presentation aims to address some of the major questions and concerns of European companies in approaching offshore application services. First, we take a look at what kinds of services fall under the umbrella of offshore as well as the circumstances and motivations leading enterprises to use them. This includes a look at the various models of offshore services and how they are being adopted in Europe. Next, we turn to the question of references: the kinds of companies that are using offshore services and the kinds of engagements they are undertaking. To round out the view of the offshore market, we examine the kinds of companies providing offshore services and how they are going to market. Finally, the discussion turns to the practical aspects of adopting offshore services, focusing on the evaluation and selection process. To conclude, Gartner provides several critical success factors for engaging in offshore application services contracts.
