Outsourcing in IT expanded

THE BIGGEST change in the structure of IT services has occurred in outsourcing, the Trend economic weekly wrote in June 2010, in a commentary about the ranking of IT and telecommunications companies in Slovakia based on company results for 2009. The weekly included in this segment Košice-based T-Systems Slovakia, which deals with remote control of IT systems for multinational clients. It increased its sales in 2009 by almost two thirds, to €40.7 million. This boosted the importance of outsourcing within the Slovak IT services sector to the same level as support for existing applications, even though there are many fewer providers engaged in outsourcing. T-Systems accounted for two fifths of the revenues of the outsourcing segment in 2009, while the top three companies (Axasoft and Soitron as well as T-Systems) accounted for as much as 70 percent.
