Business Challenges of Services-oriented Companies


The services provided by services-based organizations as described above are commonly referred to as professional services. Consequently, the software market segment that caters to such businesses and provides specific application products is known as professional services automation (PSA). Another cluster of software packages is very similar in design—project portfolio management for professional services automation (PPM for PSA). This type of software is intended to support business activities similar to those addressed by PSA; it usually originates from a simpler project portfolio management (PPM) system that is expanded with the addition of billing, time tracking, and other PSAspecific activities. Usually PPM for PSA systems lack or do not offer extensive support for back-office processes—financial management of the entire organization, human resources management, purchasing, and so on—as these systems are more focused on project delivery to clients. ERP for Services software, on the other hand, is a broader type of solution that includes support for both project delivery business procedures and backoffice processes that are not visible to clients but are still essential for running a company.

Because of the project-based and people-oriented nature of services organizations, this business segment requires software applications that are capable of supporting servicesoriented business processes and adequately handling multiple internal challenges that are intrinsic to this industry.

Business Services and Consulting


There are several ways to define the business services and consulting industry, but they all make a clear distinction between business services (services a client cannot or does not want to perform in-house) and consulting (services that will improve a client's activities). Of course, these two different types of activities can be combined into one, depending on the client's requirements.

However, the line between the two types is sometimes blurry. For instance, a company may provide shipping logistics services for a client (or for the client's clients), in the sense that it handles the shipping of goods for the client; but it can also provide consulting services (or extend its own logistics services) to help the client improve the transportation system already in place.
