PwC Ranked as a Business Consulting Leader in the Americas and Worldwide by IDC MarketScape

PwC US today announced that it has been named a Business Consulting Leader in the Americas and worldwide in a new series of IDC MarketScape reports, examining current capabilities and future ability to meet customer needs.

In the Americas, PwC is the only consulting organization to have achieved the "Leader" classification with the strongest capabilities and the strongest strategy to respond to customer needs in the next 3 to 5 years. According to IDC:

  • "In the Americas, PwC is seen as among the most capable of its peers across several characteristics that include applying proven methodologies and tools, providing functional insights, and meeting the project timelines."
  • "PwC is seen in the Americas as among the most capable at helping enterprises comply with new or existing regulations and helping clients improve operational efficiency."
  • "PwC is seen in the Americas as much better than its peers across several issues that include helping clients identify and implement options for growth and helping clients expand into new markets or geographies."

"PwC's business consulting leadership ranking in IDC's series of MarketScape reports reflects our sustained investment in our Advisory business and our focus on the issues that matter most to our clients," said Dana Mcilwain, PwC Vice Chairman and U.S. Advisory Leader. "This ranking demonstrates our commitment to our clients, and also is reflective of the kind of opportunities we provide to our people -- to deliver world-class consulting services that help clients build their next competitive advantage. We are especially pleased with our ranking, as it is determined not only by IDC's analysts but by the buyers of consulting services -- in many cases, our clients -- who participated in the study."
