IDC MarketScape: Deloitte named a leader in global business consulting based on capabilities and strategies
Published: 30 July 2015
For the fifth consecutive year, IDC has named Deloitte Consulting member firm practices and advisory businesses globally as a leader in worldwide and regional consulting capabilities and business strategies. “Deloitte is perceived to be the best 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 produce results,” according to MarketScape for Business Consulting 2015 Vendor Analysis – Worldwide*. This announcement comes on the heels of Gartner also ranking Deloitte as the No. 1 global consulting organization based on 2014 market share revenue for the fifth consecutive year. Additionally, Deloitte was recognized by IDC as a leader in the Americas; a leader in EMEA and a Major Player in Asia Pacific*.
“To consistently be viewed by clients and the industry as the trusted, go-to resource for the most complex issues in business is Deloitte’s purest measure of success,” said Jim Moffatt, Deloitte Global Consulting Leader. “Being the leader five years running is a result of the investment and prioritization our organization has made in understanding the intricacies of Deloitte clients’ businesses and what it takes to help them achieve lasting, innovative results while minimizing risk in a rapidly changing marketplace.
“Clients rely on straightforward, meaningful counsel when the stakes are highest; trusted advisors do not simply say what the client wants to hear,” said Moffatt. “From strategy to execution – our network’s purpose and long-term success lies in helping clients transform their businesses and giving them the confidence they need in these radically complex and unpredictable times. With global scale, the right people, the right industry experience and exceptional depth, Deloitte client teams drive impactful results for clients.”
Deloitte China Consulting Managing Partner, Stanley Dai said, “Among clients in the Asia/Pacific region, Deloitte is seen as the most capable of all firms at integrating risk awareness within other consulting engagements. In addition, clients in the region view Deloitte as among the strongest for delivering value-creating innovation: helping clients transform significant processes, create more effective businesses, and improve operational efficiency; integrating its project team with the client's; and supporting business change across an organization.”
“Deloitte is also seen as the most capable of all firms at challenging corporate culture, directly improving clients' overall commercial performance, and understanding the unique needs of its clients' business," said Jungle Wong, Deloitte China HCAS service lead Partner.
