Who are Europe's top IT services firms in Q1 of 2013 and what happened to IBM?

The EMEA region saw $762m worth of IT services contracts signed at the beginning of this year. This was a 20% fall in contract values in the first three months of 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. This was according to the latest report from ISG, which registers all contracts worth over €4m.

I thought I would publish ISG’s list of the companies that took the biggest shares of this spend. What is a surprise is IBM’s absence? Strange, in 2009 according to Gartner IBM was the number one IT services firm in Western Europe (which accounts for most the EMEA spend.)

Most the usual suspects are all there but there are also a few I don’t know at all, as well as some specialists thrown in.
