Deloitte named a leader in worldwide Risk Advisory Consulting Services by IDC MarketScape

New York, NY, 7 October 2015– Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) is pleased to announce that the International Data Corporation (IDC) has named Deloitte a worldwide leader for Risk Advisory Consulting Services in their report entitled IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Risk Advisory Consulting Services 2015 Vendor Assessment (August 2015).

“The governance, risk, and compliance landscape has changed, and consulting firms that offer risk advisory consulting services are leading the way,” said Cushing Anderson, vice president, Business Consulting Services research at IDC. “Advisory firms have significant expertise and have successful practices built on core GRC competencies like risk mitigation and transformation. However, firms are actively transforming traditional consulting models, relying on technological innovation as much as "boots on the ground" and mature workflow methodologies.”

Specifically for Deloitte, the report notes, “Among buyers of risk advisory services, Deloitte is considered to excel at helping improve operational efficiency and integrating the appropriate analytics for a project. In addition, Deloitte is seen as among the strongest firms for challenging corporate culture, helping clients comply with regulations, and bringing in the appropriate technologies to support a client engagement.”

“As a standalone result, IDC MarketScape’s positioning of Deloitte as a leader in worldwide Risk Advisory Consulting Services would be an impressive accolade,” said Owen Ryan, Global Business Leader for Enterprise Risk Services at DTTL. “However, in the context of the numerous awards our risk practice has accumulated in recent years, these results are truly outstanding and reflective of our commitment to making an impact that matters.”

“The IDC MarketScape’s methodology is heavily weighted on clients’ assessment of the risk services they receive,” said Henry Ristuccia, Global Leader for Governance, Regulatory & Risk at DTTL. “We consider this to be a crucial validation of our superior services—clients know they can bring their most complex risk challenges to Deloitte with full confidence in an excellent outcome.”

IDC MarketScape is a quantitative and qualitative assessment of the characteristics that explain a vendor's success in the marketplace. The report assesses the capability and business strategy of many of the leading business consulting firms. For this report the “evaluation is based on a comprehensive framework and set of parameters expected to be most conducive to success in providing business consulting services during both the short term and the long term.”

Additional Findings

  • For worldwide business consulting, Deloitte is perceived to be excellent at challenging corporate culture, directly improving clients' commercial performance, maximizing the value of a project and meeting project timelines, and recommending change or innovation that produces results.”
