March 14, 2017 - International Data Corporation (IDC) today published a new series of MarketScape reports that provide an assessment of the leading providers of global business consulting services.

"While consulting providers are generally perceived as capable, this evaluation discovered that generally enterprises are disappointed with the consulting provider's ability to drive business change across the organization, manage vendor staff turnover during a project's lifetime, or challenge corporate culture, activities essential to many significant business transformation initiatives. In this research and others, we find that some vendors are better able to produce meaningful results than others," said Cushing Anderson, vice president, Business Consulting Services research at IDC.
