ISG Research: Landscape Of Large Companies Changing

STAMFORD, Conn., May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Services Group (ISG) (NASDAQ: III), a leading technology insights, market intelligence and advisory services company, today announced new ISG Research today showing changes in the landscape of large companies globally that will have a major impact on the go-to-market strategies of service providers.

The ISG Research, which analyzes trends in The Forbes Global 2000 annual ranking of the world's largest companies, found a significant shift in regional representation on the list. Notably, the Americas has lost its dominant position, with 189 fewer companies in 2012 than it had in 2004. It has been replaced at the top by Asia Pacific, which gained 163 companies during the same time period. Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) gained 25 companies.

In addition, the ISG Research found a sharp decline in the number of firms representing the mature economies in each of the three primary regions of the world. For example, the United States had 226 fewer companies on the list in 2012 than in 2004, more than the entire net loss in the region. By contrast, there was a substantial increase in the number of Global 2000 firms from emerging markets, such as China, India, Brazil and the Middle East.

The Global 2000 is a key tool service providers use to shape their go-to-market strategies. Collectively, companies on the list spent more than $80 billion on outsourcing services last year.

"These changing dynamics point to an accelerating shift of global economic power from the West to the East and a multi-polar world in which emerging economies will drive the majority of growth in the coming years," said Paul Reynolds, Chief Research Officer, Momentum, ISG. "Service providers will need to adapt to this shift to stay competitive."

The recently published Momentum™ Market Trends & Insights 2012 Annual Report from ISG provides in-depth analysis of the changes shaping the mix of companies in the Global 2000 and how those changes will affect service providers' go-to-market strategies.

For example, Reynolds said, service providers that rely solely on successful global case studies are likely to fail. Clients in emerging markets increasingly demand evidence of local success.
