    ISG to Release Study on Growing Data Analytics Outsourcing Market

    Upcoming ISG Provider Lens™ report will examine vendors that offer data insights into customer experience and product adoptionSTAMFORD, Conn., Aug. 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm, has launched a research study examining a wide range of data analytics solutions and services offered by vendors to enterprises across the globe.The study results will be published in a comprehensive ISG Provider Lens™ report, called Analytics – Solutions and Service Partners 2020, scheduled to be released in November. The report will cover data analytics vendors whose services give enterprises increased and early insights into customer experience and product and service adoption, which are key to building resilient and future-ready businesses.Enterprise buyers will be able to use information from the report to evaluate their current vendor relationships, potential new engagements and available offerings, while ISG advisors use the information to recommend providers to the firm’s buy-side clients.The new report points to a growing demand for vendors that can offer their enterprises customers comprehensive data analytics services, said Jan Erik Aase, director and global leader, ISG Provider Lens Research.“Organizations increasingly seek to gather, store and analyze data from varied sources, but they often lack the know-how to build effective statistical models leveraging strong scientific processes,” he said. “Recruiting an army of data scientists is not the answer because these resources are difficult to find. Instead, many organizations rely on specialized data engineering service providers with capabilities to implement the necessary infrastructure to achieve efficient data pipelines and scalable data lakes.”ISG has distributed surveys to more than 135 providers of data analytics services. Working in collaboration with ISG’s global advisors, the research team will produce six quadrants representing the services and products the typical enterprise client is buying in the data analytics space, based on ISG’s experience working with its clients. The six quadrants that will be covered are: * Data Science Services, including scientific methods, processes, algorithms and systems for the extraction of insights, patterns and conclusions from structured as well as unstructured data. Services include consultation for defining targeted analyses services, implementation of methodology as well as training of data scientists. * Data Engineering Services, involving the collection and aggregation of data from structured, semi-structured and unstructured sources. Data is obtained from different systems, processed in context and is made available in a structured manner through access settings. * Data Infrastructure and Cloud Integration Services, integrating technical infrastructure and services for cloud analytics. The integration includes services which need to be provided through public, private and hybrid cloud architectures. * Data Lifecycle Management Services, referring to the capabilities of developing and implementing data governance systems, policies and procedures for the effective and efficient management of data. In an increasingly stringent regulatory environment, service providers are tasked with end-to-end management of storage, sharing, archival and retrieval of data, while adhering to relevant compliance practices. * Self-Service Analytics and BI Platforms As-a-Service, including as-a-service software solutions for business intelligence and business analytics functions. These offerings contain modular solutions for reporting the results of complex analysis of large volumes of unstructured data. * Analytics Reporting Solutions, which are solutions for processing data from varied sources and visualizing them on heterogeneous interfaces such as industrial monitoring systems, smartphones and car displays. The aim is to derive insights in such a way that decisions can be made and supported.The report will cover the global analytics market and examine products and services available in the U.S., Germany, the U.K., Brazil and the Nordic countries, as well as the Baltics. ISG analysts Dr. Henning Dransfeld, Gowtham Kumar and Marcio Tabach will serve as lead authors of the report.A list of identified providers and vendors and further details on the study are available in this digital brochure. Companies not listed as analytics providers can contact ISG and ask to be included in the study.

    Nordic Enterprises Embrace SAP Cloud Platform for Mobile Applications

    ISG Provider Lens™ report finds Nordic companies looking to add mobile services while pandemic-related social distancing remains in placeSTOCKHOLM, Sweden, July 31, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Enterprises in the Nordic region are increasingly adopting the SAP Cloud Platform to build mobile applications and deliver services to customers while COVID-19 social distancing guidelines remain in place, according to a new report published today by Information Services Group (ISG) (Nasdaq: III), a leading global technology research and advisory firm. The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ SAP HANA and Leonardo Ecosystem Partners Report for the Nordics finds enterprises in the region, including those in the retail and consumer packaged goods industries, looking to use the SAP Cloud Platform to enable mobile-based applications and contactless payments in response to the pandemic.The report also sees Nordic enterprises slowly adopting SAP’s S/4HANA intelligent ERP system. They are looking to SAP service providers to help them move SAP S/4HANA tools to the cloud, but the COVID-19 pandemic has led companies to seek price reductions or cost deferments. Many Nordic enterprises are demanding new types of outcome-based pricing and services from SAP service providers.“The pandemic is leading to workforce reductions, and enterprises are looking to manage the costs of their SAP installations,” said Barry Matthews, partner and leader, ISG North Europe. “Many Nordic enterprises are looking to save money through new or revamped outsourcing deals.”Many service providers are enabling their teams to manage the SAP contract process through virtual tools, the report adds. Most providers also are allowing employees to work from home to deliver SAP-related services.Service providers in the Nordics are focusing on the healthcare, manufacturing, retail and consumer packaged goods industries for SAP services. Some providers have developed COVID-specific offerings to help clients in niche areas and to expand their relationships with existing clients.Providers also are using bots, automation and artificial intelligence to manage applications for their clients and to optimize business processes, the report says. Many providers are also focusing on design thinking-based tools as a way to deliver low-cost services. In many cases, bots are handling low-level support requests and resolving minor incidents without human intervention. Bots are logging support tickets, updating ticket status and reducing the time to resolution.Service providers are also using artificial intelligence and machine learning to aid SAP transformation services, the report says. These tools and accelerators may apply to the entire development lifecycle or to portions of it.The report also finds service providers focused on expanding local expertise in SAP. Providers are cross-training and upskilling their staffs and providing employees in the Nordics with online and SAP-certified training.While embracing the SAP Cloud Platform, Nordic enterprises have been slower to adopt SAP’s Leonardo software and microservices delivery tool, the report says. Some providers are building Leonardo proof-of-concept demonstrations to address specific industry issues or show the benefit of the emerging technologies that Leonardo showcases.The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ SAP HANA and Leonardo Ecosystem Partners Report for the Nordics evaluates the capabilities of 30 providers across four quadrants: SAP S/4 HANA System Transformation, Managed Application Services for SAP ERP, Managed Platform Services for SAP HANA, and SAP Cloud Platform and SAP Leonardo Services.The report names Accenture, Capgemini, HCL, IBM, NTT DATA and TCS as leaders in all four quadrants and Cognizant and Tech Mahindra as leaders in three. Atos and Mindtree are named as leaders in two quadrants, and Infosys, TietoEVRY and T-Systems are named as leaders in one.The 2020 ISG Provider Lens™ SAP HANA and Leonardo Ecosystem Partners Report for the Nordics is available to subscribers or for one-time purchase on this webpage.About ISG Provider Lens™ ResearchThe ISG Provider Lens™ Quadrant research series is the only service provider evaluation of its kind to combine empirical, data-driven research and market analysis with the real-world experience and observations of ISG's global advisory team.
