The market for service providers is highly competitive, especially because they offer similar IT solutions and services to enterprises. Differentiation through innovative pricing models and industry knowledge are key factors. For service providers to remain competitive and for them to differentiate themselves, they must increase industry expertise, build dedicated and industry-focussed teams able to cross-sell, offer innovative branding and price strategies such as pay-per-use models, change their approach from selling services to providing full ICT solutions, that is, augment their business focus, and develop contracts with flexible SLAs. In addition, enterprises are looking for more flexible contracts that will help accommodate change in their IT strategy as well change in the overall technology landscape. In doing so, enterprises will have better control in terms of cost and the ability to implement innovative IT services, as needed.
