Black Book of Outsourcing has been publishing the top outsourcing companies in world for a few years now and this year was no exception. They have recently published the list for 2009 as well.
I am actually not a big fan of Black Book of Outsourcing list, simply because, if you compare 2007, 2008 and this years list, it will be very clear to you.
I have been following this BBO best managed Outsourcing vendor list for 3 years in a row now, and the amount of changes in the ranking is just astonishing. I can understand 3-4 changes up and down, but if you compare all 3 years lists – they very different from each other !
I will give you a few examples:
Here are the top 5 outsourcing companies for last 3 years from the list
2007 top 5 Outsourcing companies
|1||EDS MphasiS ExcellerateHRO|
2008 top 5 Outsourcing companies
2009 top 5 Outsourcing companies
Have a closer look at all these 3 years and you will see that not one is same, infact, even all the companies are different.
How can it be, that in one year they were at top and next year itself they are nowhere to be seen.
Infact, if you will the 2008 top outsourcing list, Infosys does not even figure in top 50. I just cant fathom that ! In 2008 a company that was not at all on the list figures at number 4 this year !
and it is not just one company, most of them move up, down or even out of the list year on year – This is just not done…
Anyways, I am still going ahead and publishing the 2009 best managed outsourcing companies list for your reference.
|Rank||Name of Outsourcing Company|
|10||HEWLETT PACKARD EDS|
|26||TATA CONSULTANCY SERVICES|
|39||THE SMART CUBE|

I would seriously urge you to go through following and after comparing draw up your own conclusions.
