Industry Collaborative Cloud Market – a young but fast growing market

PwC named as a Leader in IDC MarketScape

The industry collaborative cloud market is young, yet growing fast, with dozens of new industry collaborative clouds emerging each year across many industries, including financial services, healthcare, life sciences, manufacturing, retail, energy, and even government, according to the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Industry Collaborative Cloud Professional Services Vendor Assessment.

IDC believes the industry cloud market represents one of the largest growth opportunities for technology vendors and professional services firms through 2025, and the industry collaborative cloud segment will be an important piece of this quickly growing strategic market.

The report highlights that PwC “has extensive experience working with companies to plan, design, and build industry collaborative clouds. PwC has helped industry collaborative clouds across multiple industries, with its primary focus being on both healthcare and the life sciences and the footprint of these industry collaborative clouds spanning North America, Europe, and Asia.”

In addition, the report states that “PwC is rated highly in account management, project management, industry collaborative cloud expertise, and overall value delivery.”

Commenting on achieving this positioning, Paul Gaynor, PwC’s Global Technology Consulting leader, said: “We are proud to be recognised as a Leader in this IDC MarketScape.  Over the years, PwC has shifted toward industry collaborative cloud services to create the IT platform of the future, create profitable cloud businesses, and transform business operations. Enacting the reinvention improves the employee experience, increases collaboration, seizes new opportunities, becomes customer-driven, saves time, and improves privacy and cybersecurity for sensitive client data.”
