EY has been recognized as a leader for business analytics consulting globally by IDC MarketScape’s annual report series, Worldwide Business Analytics Consulting and Systems Integration Services Vendor Assessment.1

The IDC MarketScape cites EY as one of the leading business analytics consulting organizations that provides technical and sector insights and competence to clients. According to the report, buyers rate EY highly for applying proven methodologies and tools that include horizontal- and vertical-specific accelerators and templates.

The study also highlights that EY offers a full life cycle of analytics services, including advisory, implementation, managed services and assurance. For example, through its recently launched EY Synapse Analytics-as-a-Service (AaaS) platform, EY is helping organizations to operationalize analytics-driven insights quickly and more cost effectively across multiple locations or geographies.

About 13 major business analytics Consulting & Systems Integration service providers were evaluated based on a comprehensive and rigorous framework that assesses vendors relative to the criteria and to one another and highlights the factors expected to be the most influential for success in the market in both the short term and the long term.

Chris Mazzei, EY Chief Analytics Officer, says:
“We are proud to be named an IDC MarketScape leader in deploying analytics solutions that drive significant value for our clients. Data is one of the most precious resources of any organization. However, going from data to insights, to action, to gaining value can be challenging. With our deep analytics and technology experience combined with business process, sector and domain knowledge, and change management experience, we help clients accelerate the process in realizing value from data.”

Ali Zaidi, Research Director, IT Consulting and Systems Integration Services, IDC says:
“The IDC MarketScape represents the opinions of clients purchasing business analytics consulting and systems integration services, which they use to compete and operate more effectively through analytics-driven insights. IDC rates EY highly in terms of its financial/funding management approach and its cost management strategy.”

Additionally, EY was also named a worldwide IDC MarketScape leader for Big Data Consulting and Systems Integration Services2 and Information and Data Management Consulting and Systems Integration Services.3 In those evaluations, buyers rated EY highly for integrating its project team with their internal team, providing access to regional offices and local resources, as well as handling changes in project scope.
