This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of a number of providers participating in the worldwide EMEA business consulting services market. The IDC MarketScape is an evaluation based on a comprehensive framework and a set of parameters that assesses providers relative to one another and to those factors expected to be most conducive to success in a given market during both the short term and the long term.
"While consulting providers are generally perceived as capable, buyers of consulting services believe consulting vendors are weakest at ensuring projects meet their projected return on investment. This study shows that some vendors in EMEA are better able to produce meaningful results than others," said Douglas Hayward, associate vice president, European Services Research. "Overall, we urge consultancy buyers to focus on value, not just on price; to demand evidence of vision, capabilities, and track record when selecting vendors; and to look for a close "cultural fit" between client and consultancy."
