Everest Group Names Virtusa Major Contender in 2014 Healthcare Payer ITO PEAK Matrix

WESTBOROUGH, Mass., – (December 04, 2014) – Virtusa Corporation (NASDAQ GS: VRTU), a global business consulting and IT outsourcing company that combines innovation, technology leadership and industry solutions to transform the customer experience, today announced that it has recently been named a Major Contender in the healthcare payer IT outsourcing PEAK Matrix by Everest Group, an advisory and research firm on global services. This is the first year Virtusa has been ranked in this category, making the leap from the Emerging Player category in the previous year.

Everest Group evaluated 18 global healthcare payer IT service providers in the recently released report IT Outsourcing in Payer Industry – Service Provider Landscape with PEAK Matrix Assessment 2014: Rise of the Challengers

The in-depth report, issued annually, measures service providers on its proprietary Performance, Experience, Ability and Knowledge (PEAK) Matrix. According to the report, Everest Group determines that Major Contenders, who also happen to be competing with Leaders at a certain level, are also bearing the brunt of the heightened competition. They are steadily ramping up their capabilities or improvising strategies to remain competitive in the arena.

"In this scenario, Virtusa has grown in significance by focusing on industry-specific solutions and stronger service capabilities.”
