* NEW RESEARCH * IPPs march towards non-linearity

chartThe leading Indian pure-plays (IPPs) are making steady if stately progress on the march towards 'non-linearity', with aggregate revenues rising faster than headcount for each of the past four quarters. In fact, some players ended the year with fewer employees than they had at the start - almost unheard of for offshore services companies.

This has of course resulted in a rise in employee productivity, though there remains a massive gap between the most productive IPP and the least. Meanwhile, operating margins continue their downward trend for the seventh successive quarter.

Most IPPs are quick to point out that their 'digital' services drive higher productivity and margin – but the bulk of their business remains increasingly commoditised services supporting clients' legacy applications and infrastructure.
