This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of a number of providers participating in the worldwide capital markets 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.
"The capital markets industry is the largest financial services market sector for business consulting. Consulting firms have built significant domain expertise and services that today assist clients with business growth strategies, the design and measurement of cost-efficient financial operations, and the scale and capabilities necessary to maneuver through a complex and ever-changing regulatory setting. Based on the research contained in this document, we find that some consulting vendors are better able to produce meaningful results than others." — Cushing Anderson, vice president, Business Consulting Services, and Michael Versace, global research director, IDC Financial Insights: Worldwide Risk and IT Infrastructure Strategies
