Kearney: Toward a global network of digital hubs


A new wave of service-delivery model disruption has arrived with the prominence of a global network of digital hubs.

Kearney’s Global Services Location Index (GSLI) has identified three major evolutions in tech service-delivery models over the past three decades. First came “offshoring.” Then there was “outsourcing.” More recently, automation gave rise to “no-shoring.”
