Deloitte named a global leader in Business Analytics Services by Gartner
New York, NY, 20 October 2015– For the second consecutive year Gartner, one of the world's leading information technology research and advisory companies, has named Deloitte member firms (Deloitte) global leaders in Business Analytics Services and positioned Deloitte highest in Ability to Execute. In the report entitled Magic Quadrant for Business Analytics Services, Worldwide, Gartner defines Business Analytics (BA) as services that “encompass decision management capabilities, analytics capabilities, and information management (IM) capabilities.”
The report notes, “The use of analytics to assist in achieving business goals and providing a competitive advantage has become critically important. And more broadly, enterprises are transforming from being process-driven to being information-driven, because information is an asset and not simply a byproduct of applications.” Deloitte leverages analytics to improve and innovate across all its core businesses, including audit – where a suite of Audit Analytics tools and dedicated professionals help bring data to life to enhance risk assessment and deliver valuable insights.
“As organizations increasingly embrace the need to embed analytics as a core capability across their business portfolio, we’re helping them build these capabilities as well as manage their growing volumes of data to extract insights that create measurable business value, thus driving their evolution into becoming truly insight-driven organizations,” said Forrest Danson, Deloitte U.S. Analytics Leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “It is truly an honor to again be recognized as a leader by Gartner in Business Analytics services.” Receiving the highest rankings for ‘Ability to Execute’ recognizes the Deloitte network’s breadth of services and offerings as well as our commitment to providing clients with a consistently high level of service and innovation that helps them improve business results.”
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant evaluates 18 full-service providers on a broad range of implementation services across multiple business analytics (BA) needs. Gartner evaluates service providers on their Ability to Execute and their Completeness of Vision. Clients can use this Magic Quadrant “to help identify and evaluate the providers of a broad range of BA services for their organization.”
Leaders are defined as providing “offerings that meet demand, as well as demonstrate the vision necessary to sustain their position as requirements evolve in the market. Leaders take chances and typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements in an attempt to help shape the market. This includes delivering BA solutions across all levels of the BA framework.”
