IT Service firms are providers of computer and internet-related consulting, design and programming services, while BPO (Business Process Outsourcing) firms sometimes provide the domain knowledge and people resources to take over non-core business processes (finance and accounting, human resources), vertical processes (mortgage processing, media animation), and knowledge-based activities (analytics, market intelligence) for their customers that prefer to not do the tasks in house.
