This month’s Services Index is really a reversal of fortunes for quite a number of firms featured last time in our March index. Interestingly Orange Business Services, which shot up 8 positions last month, is now down by 6 positions as the biggest loser in our Services Index rankings for the month. The fall may be attributed to the lack of any new ventures or announcements since the January announcement by Orange to hookup with Fujitsu.
The biggest leaps this month have been registered by T-Systems (+6) and Getronics (+6). The announcement of new video-conferencing solutions is certainly one reason for the recent attention of analysts on T-Systems, as is its win of Centrica as a client. Speculation about the acquisition/collaboration of the firm by TCS is certainly in the news and if an announcement is made then it will surely be a juicy story for all analysts. Getronics,, which had fallen a tremendous 7 positions last month has rebounded this month as news surfaced that the firm may be taken over by KPN.
In the top 25 Lighthouse Services Index Patni is the only firm to have dropped out, while HP Services has re-entered the top 25 league after falling out last month.
