Cloud services strategy essential for success

PwC named as a Leader by IDC MarketScape   

According to the IDC MarketScape Worldwide Cloud Professional Services 2016 Vendor Assessment, when buyers were asked what characteristics were required for a cloud professional services project to be successful at a worldwide level, two characteristics were tied at the top, "project value delivered for fee paid" and "provide functional insights and competence."

The report highlights that “PwC’s cloud professional services strategy remains to embed its capabilities across all of its service lines in support of business transformation.  Current focus areas include helping clients build profitable cloud businesses, transforming how technology is delivered by its client's IT organisations, and making investments in relationships with platform-as-a-service providers to combine their offers with PwC's integration and brokerage know-how.”

The IDC MarketScape emphasises that “Buyers rate PwC highly for executing on its growth strategy, its innovation capabilities, and the appropriateness and execution of its delivery capabilities.”

Commenting on achieving this positioning, Juan Pujadas, Global Advisory Chairman said:  “We are proud to be recognised by the IDC MarketScape for our innovation capabilities, our employee strategy and the range of services we provide.”
