CSC has struck out in a new direction sketching out a long-term position as a “service integrator” and laying out a cloud strategy that goes beyond the usual hype. CSC needed to realign and refocus as the large outsourcing opportunities declined and its customers transform and trigger demand for new, agile services.
It’s a step change for the company as it looks to ditch the baggage from its large outsourcing business and emerge as a trusted partner for its clients. It understands that customers are sourcing cheaper and faster in a fragmenting market and that they want to consume services, while minimizing risk. The real test is whether CSC can channel its pricing and engagement models, its service management frameworks and—critically—its sales team in the same direction as the new IT services ecosystem emerges.
