Being the first such global award from Gartner, expectations were high and the results show that while big player like Wipro could not win awards having atleast won a nomination, media savvy players like Infosys, Cognizant failed to even win a nomination - may be users out in the field think about service providing companies differently than arm chair analysts and mediapersons. Obviously consulting,professional services and outsourcing services are more intricate than it meets the common eyes!! |
