Gartner defines business process as a service (BPaaS) as “the delivery of business process outsourcing (BPO) services that are sourced from the cloud and constructed for multitenancy. Services are often automated, and where human process actors are required, there is no overtly dedicated labor pool per client. The pricing models are consumption-based or subscription-based commercial terms. As a cloud service, the BPaaS model is accessed via Internet-based technologies”. (gartner.com/glossary)
Cognizant focusing on the Enterprise needs of the next decade 2010-2020 developed a specialized approach to BPaaS outsourcing “enabling clients in multiple industries to move from a highfixed-cost, capital intensive model to a variable, consumptionbased cost structure, quickly adjusting resources to meet evolving demands of the business, wherever they arise, with greater flexibility and predictability”.
Cognizant BPaaS services include: Virtual clinical operations, Order
Management as a Service, Digital Asset Management, Utilization
Management, Care Management solutions and much more”
Cognizant promotes heavily the Financial Accounting As A Service. (http://www.cognizant.com/business-process-services)
NEXT DECADE CHARACTERISTICS
“Our research across the promise, the challenges, the impacts, the innovations and the management of Cloud has shown that the more technology gets moved out of the way – into the Cloud and/or the supplier – the more the technology function can focus on the real job which is to take the capabilities that technology happens to make available and exploit them for business purposes. Cloud is, convincingly, a way forward – toward information management, business analytics, IT-enabled business innovation, and digital business. (Accenture “Cloud and the Future of Business”)
