Investments in digital strategy consulting services will increase

PwC named as a Leader by IDC MarketScape. 

Enterprise buyers in North America will increase investments in digital strategy consulting services by a 14.1% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) through 2019, generating over $45 billion in revenue for market participants.  This is according to the IDC MarketScape: North America Digital Strategy Consulting 2016 Vendor Assessment. 

With this increase in investment, businesses need to make sure they have a supporting plan in place to support their overall business goals.  The report goes on to say that “PwC is perceived by clients in the Americas to be the most capable of all firms at planning and designing an IT road map for digital strategy initiatives and at delivering and activating innovative ideas.”

Commenting on achieving this positioning, Miles Everson, Global Advisory Chairman, said: “We are really pleased to have been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape report.  Our focus is to support our clients with their large scale digital transformations. We continue to develop and grow our digital consulting business, investing to make sure we are able to support our clients from strategy and innovation, right through to execution and delivery.”
