Virtusa was among the leading providers in The Breakthrough Top 15 Sourcing Standouts for the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and the Asia Pacific regions based on annual contract value (ACV) won over the last 12 months, according to the Q2 2017 Global ISG Index.

“There is a seismic change happening in the IT outsourcing industry, with businesses looking for ways to break away from the traditional model, and moving towards applying automation and digital technology innovation to transform their businesses,” said Praveen Purushotham, global head of Marketing, Virtusa. “We are seeing increased demand for our transformational solutions and services due to our differentiated value proposition.

Each Top 15 category includes providers that compete in the traditional sourcing market, as well as those that compete in the as-a-service market, including IaaS and SaaS providers.
