This IDC study uses the IDC MarketScape model to provide an assessment of several providers participating in the worldwide network 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.
"While the participants in this study are highly capable of delivering network consulting services, the study aims to differentiate those consulting firms that are investing to be ahead of the market and meeting customers' needs. This requires a strategic road map for helping enterprise customers innovate, differentiate, and compete on technology, innovation, and business playing fields. To do this successfully, network consulting firms must have the right mix of people, process, and technology to meet the demand," said Leslie Rosenberg, research director, Network Life-Cycle Services.
