Ovum, the leading provider of research, advisory and consulting services for the global Information, Communications and Technology (ICT) sector and Orbys, the sourcing advisory company, have been awarded the title of ‘UK Outsourcing Advisor, Top Honours Overall’ in the recently published ‘Black Book of Outsourcing - Outsourcing Advisor Report’.

Orbys has been part of Ovum since July 2006. Orbys’s expertise at the most complex level of sourcing, combined with Ovum’s in-depth understanding of the suppliers together offer a unique base for providing user organisations with pragmatic advice about their sourcing strategy, making Ovum Orbys a key advisor at the critical juncture between vendors and buyers, as recognised by this award.

Brown-Wilson Group - the authors of the industry-respected ‘The Black Book of Outsourcing’, undertake annual surveys into organisations’ satisfaction with their outsourcing service providers and advisors. “Over 850 outsourcing contracts are investigated, with 20 advisor-specific key performance indicators used to independently measure clients’ overall level of satisfaction. Being nominated in any category is an excellent achievement but winning top honours overall is particularly impressive. Ovum and Orbys’s joint award was most deserved based on the feedback we had,” says Douglas Brown, Managing Partner, Brown-Wilson Group and Co-Author, ‘The Black Book of Outsourcing.’

“We are delighted that Ovum and Orbys’s expertise in the marketplace has won them this prestigious award”, says Mark Meek, CEO for Datamonitor – owners of both Ovum and Orbys. “Enterprises must think carefully before embarking on a traditional sourcing approach and having Ovum and Orbys’s joint expertise recognised by the industry as the leading outsourcing advisor further reinforces our market leading brand in this space.” /PR
