IDC MarketScape: Americas Business Consulting Services 2016 Vendor Assessment

By: Cushing AndersonProgram Vice President, Business Consulting and IT Education, Jim WestcottResearch Manager, Application Solutions


This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of a number of providers participating in the worldwide 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, this evaluation discovered that generally, enterprises are disappointed with the consulting provider's ability to directly improve the organization's commercial performance — an essential component of many projects. In this research and others, we find that some vendors are better able to produce meaningful results than others." — Cushing Anderson, vice president, Business Consulting Services research
