Patni Computer Systems, which has a strong presence in the Middle East, including an office in the UAE, will highlight its comprehensive suite of strategic business process outsourcing (BPO) and knowledge process outsourcing (KPO) services, at the Arab Outsourcing Conference 2010. The conference opens at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, Dubai, on Monday, April 26.
Derek Kemp, President, EMEA, Patni Computer Systems said: “Cloud computing is set to add $800 billion in net new business between 2010 and 2014 globally. We believe the Middle East has the potential to be at the forefront of this growth, as more and more companies seek to streamline operations, reduce costs and enhance business efficiencies through global sourcing.
“Our strategic outsourcing solutions have helped organizations worldwide to reduce cost and scale up operations, while focusing on their core competencies, and we see great potential for our services in this region.
“Our suite of CIS and BPO services is a natural extension of our service offerings. Our CIS and BPO services are built on a foundation of process and domain expertise, and are enabled by innovative technologies,” he added.
Kemp, who will be participating in a discussion panel at the event - ‘Outsourcing: Opportunities and Challenges for Organizations in the Middle East’ – on the first day of the conference, says there are many strategic and tactical benefits that can be derived from a well thought-out outsourcing or offshoring decision, other than cost savings.
“Benefits can range from the tactical, such as rapid scaling for short-term, high-volume tasks, to strategic reaching out to new customer segments, including tapping low-margin high-volume customer segments, penetrating new geographies, leveraging new channels, and converting fixed cost to variable cost.
“Global sourcing decisions can also help companies rapidly adapt to market forces, by covering for skills shortages and enabling the quick adoption of technology and connectivity advancements,” Kemp added.
Patni is a Gold sponsor of the Arab Outsourcing Conference 2010, which runs until Tuesday April 27.
