The study, IDC MarketScape : Worldwide Microsoft Enterprise Applications Implementation Services Ecosystem 2015 Vendor Assessment (IDC #US40150215), profiled ten vendors participating in the worldwide Microsoft enterprise applications implementation services market. Of the vendors assessed, IDC named Accenture/Avanade, HCL, and TCS as "Leaders" in the space for 2015.
"This is IDC's first-ever evaluation of the Microsoft enterprise applications implementation services ecosystem, and it will help IT buyers evaluate which service providers to consider," said Ali Zaidi , Research Manager, IT Consulting and Systems Integration Business Strategies at IDC.
"Interestingly, vendors' R&D and innovation skills showed the greatest differentiation during our evaluation," added Gard Little , Research Director, IT Consulting and Systems Integration Business Strategies at IDC, "Increasingly, innovation matters to more buyers, so evaluating vendor resources co-located with Microsoft's research labs, or vendor innovation teams that leverage Microsoft IP are some of the key attributes we evaluated."
