PwC has been named as a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific Business Consulting Services 2021 Vendor Assessment (November 2021, IDC #US47455721 ). The IDC MarketScape report says, ‘Clients in Asia Pacific (APAC) rated their providers, in aggregate, best at helping them with the following business priorities: improving internal operations, transforming critical processes, and developing digital products and services.’ 

David McKeering, Partner, Consulting Leader, PwC Australia and CEO ASEANZ Consulting*, said: ‘We are delighted to be named a leader in this IDC MarketScape for Asia/Pacific Business Consulting along with the Worldwide, Americas and European reports. With the world constantly changing and the need to know what to do and how to do it at scale and pace, it has never been more pressing to build trust and solve our client’s most complex problems.  Our PwC teams are constantly identifying new sources of value for our clients at the intersection of human and digital.  Spotting emerging trends and opportunities as well as tackling complex digital transformation challenges, helps clients reinvent how to compete in an increasingly disruptive landscape.’

According to the report, ‘PwC works to deliver impact and value from strategy through execution — drawing on the functional skills evident across the firm, including strategy, operations, finance, people and organization, customer, design, analytics, portfolio and program management, technology, forensics, digital, deals, tax, transformation, and risk regulatory and compliance issues.’

The IDC MarketScape also notes, ‘The recognition and awards that PwC has received speak to the strength and diversity of its global network — its ability to listen to and understand clients and work with them to forecast their future needs. PwC brings to bear a global presence and local knowledge of individual markets and sectors to each client engagement, as it helps clients move strategically through a global landscape of rapid change.’ 

Simon Gealy, CEO, PwC South East Asia Consulting*1, said: ‘We’re happy to see that our strategy is working. We’re leveraging our skilled resources through our regional Centres of Excellence to deliver quality and value to our clients. I’m always impressed by not just the technical strength, but also the incredible diversity and resilience of our people; these are fundamental ingredients in our ability to solve problems and build trust, at a time when it's both more difficult to earn, and easier to lose.’

Commenting on PwC’s strengths, the report states, ‘Among clients in the APAC region, PwC is viewed as one of the strong firms at providing functions, insights, and competence. On client engagements, PwC understands unique business needs of clients and transfers knowledge and skills to them.’

Julie Coates, Partner, PwC Australia, Clients and Industries Leader, said, ‘This recognition reinforces PwC’s The New Equation with clients. This truly represents how our people, clients and technology come together as a community of solvers in unexpected ways to come up with solutions that build trust and drive quality, sustained client outcomes across challenges and opportunities impacting our clients including ESG, value creation in Deals, Transformation and responding to Risk and Regulation.’
