"The emerging megavendors have made dramatic progress in the past few years and have more than doubled their revenues in a four-year period, with the 2007 revenues being 2.6 times the 2004 revenues," said Partha Iyengar, vice president, analyst and regional research director, Gartner. "This level of growth differential has continued even as these vendors have become multibillion dollar enterprises.
To put this in context, there are just 100 service enterprises globally with more than $1 billion in revenues." The Indian providers will have to address the issue of moving away from resource intensive revenue growth to a model that provides higher leverage and increases revenue without a linear relationship to head count, which is the situation that exists today.
They will have to achieve similar (to the current megavendors) levels of revenue per employee benchmarks to truly achieve megavendor status
