PwC Named Leader in Magic Quadrant for Business Analytics Services
PwC has been positioned in the Leaders quadrant of Gartner’s February 2018 Magic Quadrant for Business Analytics Services, Worldwide.
Business analytics give organizations the ability to prepare and forecast future business interactions and outcomes. Data is an asset that organizations already own. PwC works with clients to analyse current data capabilities, develop a strong data foundation and then monetise that data. This process allows for the harnessing of the power of information to optimise business performance and commercialize data opportunities.
Gartner states, “Business Analytics (BA) service providers have developed to have a wide spectrum of capabilities and skill sets, enabling them to operate across multiple domains and service competencies. These capabilities incorporate business consulting, technology consulting, enterprise architecture, information architecture, design, on-site services, remote services, testing, infrastructure integration, change management and training. BA providers also offer services to support the business operational, tactical and strategic decisions across products, customers and suppliers, as well as across business units and geographies.”
Commenting on the Magic Quadrant placement, Gerard Verweij, Global Data and Analytics leader, said: “We are delighted that Gartner has recognized our commitment, investment and differentiated capabilities at PwC and view us as a Leader in this Magic Quadrant. We feel that it recognises our strength across the Data & Analytics spectrum while providing trust to help our clients tackle a wide variety of data and analytics related challenges. From building the data foundation to Artificial Intelligence to improving business performance and taking advantage of innovation opportunities, we believe our clients are fully realizing the benefits of our data driven and technology enabled offerings.”
