“ISG is delighted to name Mindtree the overall winner of the 2019 ISG Star of Excellence Award for core technology services,” said Andrea Murray, partner, ISG Performex™, the firm’s user experience and business relationship research service. “This independently verified recognition is well earned and reinforces Mindtree’s position among the top echelon of providers in the $100-billion-plus global sourcing industry.”
Through its ‘Voice of the Customer’ study, ISG surveyed more than 1,400 enterprise customers to obtain their feedback on providers’ service quality. The enterprise respondents all have direct exposure to providers and represent a broad cross section of industries, company sizes, geographies and areas of responsibility.
Respondents were asked to provide their feedback across eight broad categories of service quality: collaboration, execution, governance, teams and innovation (for core technology providers), and incubation, enablement and acceleration (for emerging technology providers).
Survey responses were scored mathematically, without interpretation by ISG, to determine the winners.
