FRAMINGHAM, Mass.--()--International Data Corporation (IDC) has released a new series of MarketScape reports that provide an assessment of a number of providers participating in the global business consulting services market.

For the study, IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Business Consulting Services 2015 Vendor Assessment (IDC # 254320), the five largest business consulting firms and several additional firms with broad portfolios were evaluated. Deloitte, IBM, KPMG, and PwC, an SAP Company, were identified as Leaders.

"While consulting providers are generally perceived as capable, buyers of consulting services are critical of consulting providers' ability to drive innovation throughout the organization — an essential component of many projects — and consultants' ability to help evolve the client business to include more 'digital' products and services. 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.
