1 White Paper Business Process Transformation A Pulse Check Over the last decade or two, two trends have been noticeable across all businesses. The move towards consolidation of office-based operations, whether front-office, mid-office or back-office, and increase in regulation and government oversight. These moves have substantially increased the pressure on the operations team to deliver value as a business partner to the organization. The recent global financial crisis has not helped either it has starved the CXOs of funds while the pressure to drive efficiency and effectiveness, and the pressure to transform continues. This paper performs a pulse check on the need for business transformation in the current context, and the potential areas that a provider can help with.

2 About the Author Shyam Kerkar AVP & Head, Marketing for Business Process Services. Shyam is the Head, Marketing for Tata Consultancy Services Business Process Services unit TCS BPO. He has been instrumental in ensuring that TCS BPO receives the brand recognition it deserves globally, in capturing the appropriate mindshare with influencers and, in assisting TCS various customers in identifying new areas to expand relationships with TCS.

Prior to his current role, Shyam was a leading member of TCS BPO s pre-sales team and was instrumental in identifying innovative solutions for prospects. Previously, he has managed customer relationships and has been responsible for the delivery of a number of large programs. 2

3 TCS recently conducted a blind survey across buyers, advisors and suppliers to gauge what each one of them felt about initiating a business transformation program in the current macro economic situation and to gauge how they are going about it. We received responses from 100+ buyers, 25+ analysts and advisors and 60+ suppliers. We have a cross-section of the buyer community represented in this survey with substantial representation across segments. Buyer Mix : Across Industries Services S/W, H/W 11% Insurance 13% Manufacturing 15% LSHC 14% Other 9% Retail & CPG 7% Banking & Financial Services 23% Travel & Hospitality 4% Govt & Public Sector 3% Media & IS 2% Telecom N/W & ISP 1% 10,000-24,999 Employees 18% 25,000 49,999 employees 17% 50,000+ employees 17% BU or Department Manager 17% 1,000-10,000 Employees 26% Fewer than 1,000 employees 22% Director, EVP, SVP, VP, Controller 48% C-Level Executive CKO, etc.) 19% IT or IS Manager 14% Other2% n = 103 Respondent mix across industries, designations and roles 3

4 TCS asked buyers and advisors to prioritize the factors to be considered when embarking on a transformation journey to efficiency and effectiveness. More buyers chose time to benefit as one of the Top 3 factors than scale of benefits though scale of benefits continues to rank as the single most important factor that buyers consider. It is also interesting to note that the analysts and advisors who chose scale are almost twice in number to those who chose time to benefit. Immediate realization of benefits continues to lag behind as a critical factor when analysts look at it but buyers give it an overall importance rating almost equivalent to the scale of benefits. The latter is not a surprise given the current macro-economic conditions. Other In-house expertise available Peer Group Experience Immediately Realized Benefits Scale of the benefits Overall Project Duration n= (High Importance) 2 3 (Low Importance) Buyers : Top 3 Factors Impacting Transformation Project Decisions Buyers continue to attach significant importance to in-house expertise available and peer group experience in choosing transformation initiatives. As buyers move towards a global sourcing model they can find the right partner to supplement the in-house expertise. Analysts and advisors overwhelmingly identify aligning processes to industry best practices as the most significant transformation initiative. This is perhaps in line with their focus on the scale of benefit rather than immediacy of benefits. Industry best practices evolve over time and are considerably impacted by the technology and infrastructure availability at the time. Quite often it is not possible to undertake the move to the golden ideal without making step changes in terms of simplification and harmonization. Other In-house expertise available Peer Group Experience Immediately Realized Benefits Scale of the benefits Overall Project Duration n= (High Importance) 2 3 (Low Importance) Advisors : Top 3 Factors Impacting Transformation Project Decisions 4

5 We also asked the buyers to tell us about what has been done in their organizations about the transformation initiatives and the activities that they were planning in the near future. Seeking greater insights from available data is perhaps one of the key items that remains unaddressed across more than 50% of the organizations. Part of the reason for this could also be the buyer perception that analytics ability should be delivered from onshore or nearshore locations. The rapid emergence of some of the low cost locations in delivery of Knowledge Services could see this changing. Technology & Infra.

6 The same question also indicates that more than 75% of the organizations have already undertaken some form of technology and infrastructure rationalization initiative and a similar number has attempted automation to eliminate labor.

We see interest in outsourcing all activities that drive efficiencies and effectiveness, with a small but significant portion of buyers seeking gain-share arrangements. This is even more evident when we asked buyers about ownership of specific aspects of business transformation. Across the spectrum of activities 30-40% of the buyers are choosing a collaborative approach to managing transformation initiatives. A provider who can offer consulting and advisory capabilities in addition to being able to drive implementation collaboratively would meet the need of the hour. 6
