Mindtree’s Ramesh Menon, SVP & Head of Hi-Tech, will be on the panel along with senior leaders from CA, GE and eBay to discuss the nuances of what it takes an organization to drive global engineering excellence while ensuring they stay relevant and are able to adapt quickly to the continually changing environment.

Panel: No Free Lunch: Pay for engineering Outcomes - Building innovative Engineering Partnerships

There has been a sharp rise in the number of outsourcing engagements delivered on an outcome based model. Especially with the ever increasing maturity of service providers from a delivery and engineering standpoint, it is no longer wise to continue to pay on the basis of time and effort. It would be interesting for the buyers to note that even the service providers are extremely keen on getting on to an outcome based model, as it gives them a higher degree of ownership and visibility into their customer’s product roadmap. For the buyer, there is a real possibility of shifting some of the engineering and business risk on to the partner.

This panel will feature Kamran Ozair, Executive Vice President, Mindtree and provide a broad framework for selecting a typical outcome based model, the nuances involved in transitioning from a fixed price / T&M model to an outcome based model.
