PwC Achieves Vanguard Status in the Kennedy Vanguard™ of Mobility IT Strategy Consulting Providers

NEW YORK, March 31, 2014 PwC US today announced it has been selected as a Vanguard firm in the Kennedy Vanguard™[1] of Mobility IT Strategy Consulting Providers. The Kennedy Vanguard™ assesses firms in terms of the relative breadth and depth of their mobility IT strategy consulting capabilities, and illustrates a firm’s momentum in the mobility IT strategy consulting space relative to others.  PwC is one of only three providers to achieve this Vanguard rating.

“According to our annual CEO Survey, 86 percent of U.S. CEOs recognize that technology advances will transform their business over the next five years,” said Thomas DeGarmo, Global and U.S. Advisory Technology Consulting Leader, PwC. “PwC’s deep industry knowledge coupled with our social, mobile, analytics and cloud capabilities combine to create the driving forces behind our mobility IT strategy consulting business.  This powerful combination enables us to help organizations, from strategy through execution, achieve a digital operating model that allows for greater agility and sustainable competitive advantage in the years to come.”

According to the Kennedy Vanguard, PwC “pulls together experts from its industry groups, mobility subject matter experts within its Advisory group, Assurance and Tax businesses to fully address the topic of mobility and create a mobility IT strategy that solves a business problem. The firm’s extensive thought leadership and research through The Technology Institute keep PwC at the forefront of mobility trends and client issues, which it extracts when engaging with clients.”

Additional highlights about PwC’s strengths in the area of mobility IT strategy include:

  • PwC conducts an abundance of research on mobile technologies through its Technology Institute, keeping the firm knowledgeable on current and forward-looking trends and client issues.
  • PwC is able to address each mobility IT strategy client, regardless of its geographical location, due to its wide-reaching member firm network. This gives PwC a cultural connection and inside knowledge of laws and regulations.
