Noted for bringing operational efficiency and supporting organizational change

PwC has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific Business Consulting Services 2018 Vendor Assessment (doc # US42761618, March 2018). The IDC MarketScape’s analysis is based upon two key criteria. The first is a series of interviews with firm Leaders. The second is an end-user client survey.

Based upon these measurement criteria, PwC was recognized for its global focus, extensive network of strategic alliances and end-to-end service offerings, with particular note of its offerings in digital and innovation. PwC works closely with technology partners, including Google, SAP, Oracle, Microsoft and GE, building strategic partnerships that lead to shared learnings and increased access to expertise for their clients.

The report also mentions PwC’s Business, eXperience, and Technology (BXT) philosophy, which, coupled with PwC’s other functional area expertise, allows for large-scale transformation.
