IBM is ranked first top Global Outsourcing Company

Consultant The first ever ranking of firms in the fastest growing segment of the world economy. This is interesting to know, I didn't realize that, neither did I realize that IBM was such a proeminent player. The top 100 represents 68.9B revenues and 1M employees, roughly 70k/emp in revenue on avg - not great. The number 2 company Sodexho Alliance, I don't know, and by the description they don't come across as an outsourcer. I'm glad to see CGI is in the top 10, more precisely number 8. I see Wipro but I don't see the usual suspects, Tata, Infosys there. I don't understand enough what the ranking was based on. The rising stars category is made of non US firms, from you've guessed it China, and India.
