IBM Global Services is the top Western European services company
IDC ranked the top 10 services companies in Western Europe for 2003:
- IBM Global Services
- HP Services
- BT Global Services
- Siemens Business Services
- Atos Origin
The market is highly polarized, with the top 10 companies representing 29% of the market opportunity in 2003, and hundreds of vendors claiming the remaining 71%. IDC expects polarization to continue as the market matures, with the leading services players growing and increasing their dominance through organic growth and strategic acquisitions of niche and medium-sized firms.
