IDC MarketScape: European Business Consulting Services 2021 Vendor Assessment
This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of several providers participating in the European 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 each market during both the short term and the long term.
"In Europe, consulting providers are generally perceived as being able to excel at integrating their engagement teams with those of their clients, understanding the unique needs of a client's business, and offering high-quality staff and service. They are also considered very capable of meeting project timelines and providing the required spectrum of strategy consulting services," said Bjoern Stengel, senior research analyst, Business Consulting Services at IDC. "This evaluation discovered that generally clients are less impressed with consulting providers' ability to provide industry insights and capabilities, directly improve the client organization's overall commercial performance, and integrate appropriate technologies — all essential to many significant business transformation initiatives."
