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 to middle market firms (firms with revenue <$1 billion) are generally perceived as capable, this evaluation discovered that, generally, enterprises are disappointed with the consulting provider's ability to help firms expand into new geographies or markets, which is a higher priority for middle market firms than for larger firms. 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
