Yet business processes outsourcing (BPO) awards are up by 22 per cent year-over-year. In the second quarter we saw a notably tepid performance generally in the European outsourcing market, but anticipate performance to pick up in the second half of the year. ACV came in at €1.6 billion, which was disappointing, but this overall decline can be attributed to a lack of large-deal awards. There were just 11 awards over €€32 million in ACV in the quarter, the weakest performance seen since the third quarter of 2010. However this decline is also a global trend; ACV decreased by 27 per cent from the previous quarter worldwide, reflecting a broadly similar sentiment across all regions. http://bit.ly/omonlinesep1305 Consendre mod eugait alit“The internet isaugait num iusti facidunt ipsumsan el eraestrud exeratof human cor ing eumsandre ex elit luptati sisisisit the most important single development in the history ad onulla atetue tet ulla feu feum niamconEm ea commodiam ad tem dolortio Utat lum quisim et, Barry communication since the invention of call waiting.” – Dave quissi.Volobore m iurero dolobore. 106 ●● ● ● www.outsourcemagazine.co.uk http://www.bit.ly/OMOnlineSep1305 http://www.outsourcemagazine.co.uk
