Monday sees the annual Gartner Outsourcing Summit in London. This year’s two day event will be at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel in London.

What will be Gartner’s message?

I will be there in Monday and will go Tuesday if it proves to god to miss so I will blog from the event.

But here is a taster of what is to come. This is a sneak preview from Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst Claudio Da Rold:

“Ten years ago, we accurately predicted turbulent and revolutionary changes in how users buy and providers deliver IT services and developed a framework, the “Four Worlds of Services”, which has proven to be a highly effective representation of the major dynamics of the IT services market for both buyers and providers. Our vision was based on the expectation of a long-term transformation of this market through the concept of “tectonic shifts” — that is, relatively long periods of quiet and preparation, followed by a sudden change.”

“Today we see how the industrialisation tectonic shift is clearly ongoing and accelerating, after having achieved the point of no-return and more than 50 per cent of the expected impact. Due to the accelerated signals of the development of cloud-based services and technology, we forecast that by 2015 industrialised services will represent more than 30 per cent of the IT services market.”
