Business Models have evolved and will continue
to change rapidly…

                                           Clearly, the next 5 years will see a mix of
               Impact Of                   traditional outsourcing with some
                                           experimentation on the cloud model.
                 Cloud                     Cloud computing will make an impact, but
               Computing                   will not replace traditional outsourcing

                                           Core legacy applications will continue to
                                           remain in-house and not move to the
                                           cloud model. High sunk costs on recoding
                                           will discourage the cloud model for core

                                           Pricing models of outsourced vendors will
                                           see high degree of innovation to compete
                                           with the „pay-per-use‟ cloud model

                                           Providers will move up the value chain to
                                           offer end-to-end services including cloud
                                           computing. Assisting clients in creating
                                           private clouds could potentially be a
                                           litmus test before they adopt the public
                                           cloud model

                                           Buyers will find it easier to integrate the
                                           cloud approach with existing providers,
                                           thereby reducing risk and being cost

                                           Reduced regulatory concerns on data
                                           security and reliability will drive cloud
                                           computing to a success

                                                                                          Page 7

Globalization 3.0- A case in point is entry of
Airtel in Africa

   Airtel is the no. 1 cellular service provider in India

   Concerned over saturating market and increased
     competition, Airtel identified Africa as the next
     growth market and the revenue driver for future.

   Airtel acquired Zain‟s assets in Africa for $10.7 bn.

   Customer services by telecom firms in Africa has
     been abysmal whereas Airtel is known for its high
     customer services in India.

   Airtel proposes to improve the customer services
     in Africa. This presented a great opportunity for
     service providers to enter Africa

   Following its strategy of reliance on outsourcing as
     in India, Airtel outsourced the IT aspects of its
     operations in Africa to IBM and customer services
     to Tech Mahindra and Spanco.

       Airtel’s entry in Africa followed by service providers amply demonstrates the
                 importance of gaining market access through globalization

                                                                                                  Page 9
