Deloitte named a leader in Digital Innovation Consulting

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 15 December, 2016—Deloitte announced today that ALM Intelligence has named Deloitte Digital as a global leader in Digital Innovation Consulting. In the report entitled Digital Innovation Consulting 2016, ALM Intelligence notes, “Digital technologies are driving the development of not only new digital products and services, but also new digital business models and delivery models for brick-and-mortar incumbents selling and operating in traditional industries.”

“Transformational innovation requires both a design-driven approach and digital technologies as part of the solution,” says Andy Main, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and head of Deloitte Digital. “Deloitte Digital has the necessary talent and resources to seamlessly deliver world-class digital businesses and experiences for our clients that are focused on the people they serve.”

Specifically, for Deloitte, ALM Intelligence highlights, “Deloitte Digital has the broadest set of digital innovation consulting capabilities of its peer group, and therefore is more likely to approach a digital innovation consulting engagement from a digital strategy or a creative design starting point than from a narrow technology perspective.”

“As part of Deloitte Digital, Doblin drives the design and innovation engine at the front-end of digital transformation, helping ensure that we are creating new sources of value for our clients with people at the center of our solutions,” said Jeff Wordham, principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP and leader of Doblin, Deloitte Digital’s design-led innovation practice.

The report lays out the opportunities and challenges for Digital Innovation consulting providers focusing on market trends, client spending forecasts, and the provider landscape, and includes profiles of select key firms.

According to ALM, “Digital innovation consulting refers to consulting services focused on helping clients create and launch new digital products, services, and business models.”

Additional Findings
  • “Like the IT firms, Deloitte Digital boasts deep expertise in the underlying digital technologies, but it marries this expertise with equally strong digital innovation strategy capabilities, exemplified by its Monitor Deloitte and Doblin groups.”
  • “Deloitte Digital. Of the large global consulting firms, Deloitte was one of the first to recognize the extent to which the digital revolution was going to change both its clients’ industries and its own consulting business, and one of the first to act on its conviction by building a dedicated digital consulting agency within the larger Deloitte organization.”
  • “From the start, digital innovation, especially within the customer experience, has been a core focus for Deloitte Digital. Having gained an early lead over its competitors, Deloitte Digital shows no sign of losing momentum.”
  • “The firm continues to add to its digital innovation consulting capabilities, both organically and inorganically, most recently with the announcement that it is acquiring San Francisco-based digital advertising agency Heat. This is consistent with its market strategy of offering the most comprehensive set of end-to-end digital consulting capabilities under one roof (Deloitte Digital’s ambition is to “imagine, deliver, and run the future”), but it also serves as yet another sign that the line between digital consulting and digital marketing and advertising markets continues to blur. The creative talent and storytelling skills of firms such as Heat are directly applicable to the digital innovation consulting market, especially with regards to the designing and scaling of innovative digital products and services.”

As used in this press release, “Deloitte” refers only to the Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited member firms.
