How As-a-Service is your organization?


Is your enterprise ready for what the future has in store for us?

This emergence of “As-a-Service” represents the most disruptive series of impacts to the traditional IT and business services industry that we have seen.

The globalization wave is peaking, and many maturing enterprise service buyers are struggling to find incremental value from the traditional outsourcing model, such as accessing more meaningful data, achieving better automation of processes, deploying end-to-end process delivery and accessing talent with creative business thinking skills. At the same time, service buyers need to keep driving down their operating costs to a minimum, with globally accessible technology platforms, based on common standards enabled by the cloud.

Looking at this next evolution of value, it is coming from technology-driven “As-a-Service” advancements that directly enhance employee, partner and customer effectiveness.

In short, the way service buyers receive services, and the way service providers sell and deliver them, is going to be very, very different in a few short years, and already some process areas where the technology is already available are being impacted.


At HfS, we have developed Eight Ideals of AsaService, that provide a guide for us all to follow as we look to achieving maximum value from our services in the future:

1. Design Thinking
2. Business Cloud

6. Write off Legacy
