Who are the top Western European IT service providers?

A colleague asked me the other day who are the top ten IT service providers in Western Europe? I must admit I didn’t really know the answer but while attending the Gartner outsourcing and IT services summit I got one.

Better than that here is the top 15 in Western Europe by revenue according to Gartner. In the second table I have the same 15 in order of revenue growth over the last year.

Useful reference point for any outsourcing enthusiast. I am trying to think if any of these companies will merge or acquire.

What do you think?

Interesting to see that combined the big Indian suppliers only account for 2.4% of total revenue in Western Europe. So lots of room to grow for them.

The second table show the companies that are growing the most.

Interesting that the ones with the biggest drops in revenues are the ones that have been fleecing the taxpayer for years.

Hi Karl

I tried looking for the source in Gartner, but unfortunately could not get any report talking about the article. I wanted to know the kind of services you have considered (or Gartner in this case) for the study.

I also see a lot of consolidation of service providers to acquire new capabilities. Would love to know what you think.
