Independent research highlights PwC’s ‘overall high quality’ and 'sophisticated and complete material' in areas of human capital management and integration of IT with business
NEW YORK, December 11, 2012 -- PwC US today announced that the firm was named a leader in the November, 2012 “The Forrester Wave™: IT Organization Redesign Consultancies, Q4 2012” report by Forrester Research, Inc.
“Today's leaders of IT organizations must balance the skills and talent necessary to deliver innovative solutions with the equally important need to cost effectively support IT platforms that can help drive the business forward,” said Tom DeGarmo, principal and U.S. and Global Technology Consulting Leader at PwC. “PwC helps companies create effective IT organizations that can meet the increasingly complex and rapidly evolving challenges of a global business environment. We believe our position as a leader in Forrester's report reflects our continued commitment to helping our clients -- from strategy through execution -- position themselves to achieve their business objectives today, and in the years to come.”
PwC was among seven significant providers that Forrester evaluated for the report based on 28 criteria of IT organization redesign consultancies. These criteria were part of three high-level categories: current offering, strategy, and market presence. According to the report, “PwC displayed all the pieces that we expect to see of a leading IT redesign consulting firm.”
Additionally, the report states, “In particular, we found that PwC had some of the most sophisticated and complete material in the areas of human capital management and the integration of IT with the business (something PwC calls the business/ IT divide). Much of this thinking likely comes from its acquisitions of Saratoga and Diamond. Furthermore, the firm’s internal benchmark data from more than 4,000 companies in areas of workforce productivity, labor costs, turnover, etc., is among the strongest in this field of vendors.”
