EY announces that it has been named a leader for its business operations consulting (BOC) in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Business Operations Consulting Services, Worldwide.1 The recognition is for consulting services that support senior business stakeholders – COOs, chief supply chain officers (CSCOs), chief procurement officers (CPOs) and other operational leaders – in their efforts to improve their companies’ operations on a global basis. 

Andrew Caveney, EY’s Global Supply Chain and Operations Leader, says:

“We are honored to be recognized as a leader for our business operations consulting portfolio. We take great pride in the results we have delivered for our clients in our supply chain transformation work globally. From supply chain strategy and operating model redesign through to cross-functional operational excellence implementations. Our Supply Chain and Operations practice is a strategic pillar within our Global Advisory business and we continue to invest significantly in its growth around the world.” 

Notable developments recently in EY’s BOC include the acquisition of The Parthenon Group. EY also has continued to expand and enhance its global, sector-specific Centers of Excellence (COE) and its ‘My Competencies’ platform, a tool that enables its professionals around the world to articulate and share their skills and experiences in a consistent way. 

Michael Dominy, Gartner analyst and report author, says: “BOC services, a US$9.8b segment within the US$32.7b business consulting market, are dominated by supply chain consulting and represent the largest part of the global business consulting service market. Providers must demonstrate strengths in program management, change management and governance. Gartner has observed consistently strong demand for BOC services over the years, accelerated by increasing globalization; continued economic volatility; digitalization of business and operating models; the need to better manage risk and environmental sustainability; and emerging analytics that enable better insights.” 

EY’s supply chain management (SCM) consulting practice works with companies to help transform their supply chains and operations to deliver both a competitive advantage and superior, sustainable financial results. The SCM practice is organized around deep industry experience and focuses on bringing industry-specific operational insight from strategy through to execution, including leveraging the latest SCM analytics and technologies.
