Gartner, the world’s leading information technology and advisory company, recognized Deloitte as a leader, positioned highest for ability to execute and furthest for completeness of vision, in its February 2019 report titled,Magic Quadrant for Data and Analytics Service Providers, Worldwide.
“In today’s rapidly evolving technology landscape, we need to be prepared to navigate the digital revolution in the age of human and machine collaboration,” says David Rudini, Deloitte Global Analytics Lead. “Deloitte is honored to receive this accolade, which we believe, serves as a testament to our ongoing commitment to help clients achieve sustained business outcomes through analytics and AI-fueled transformation.”
Gartner defines data and analytics (D&A) services as “a broad term, including the applications, infrastructures, tools and best practices that enable access to—and analysis of—information to improve and optimize decisions and performance. There are hundreds of service providers that specialize specifically in the components of data management, data governance, BI platforms, advanced analytics for a function or process, AI and machine learning (ML), IoT analytics, or analytical applications.”
Gartner’s Magic Quadrant evaluates 19 of data and analytics service providers. According to the report, Leaders are defined as those who “provide offerings that meet demand in D&A services, as well as demonstrate the vision necessary to sustain their position as requirements for asset-based consulting evolve in the market. Leaders innovate in products, services and pricing, take chances, and typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements in an attempt to help shape the market. This includes delivering business-outcome-focused D&A solutions across all levels of the Gartner Business Analytics Framework.”
The report also notes, “The need for enterprises to maximize the benefits of digital business also drives their need to extract business outcomes from their data and analytics (D&A) programs. It has led to an uptick in the number of chief data officers (CDOs) and growing importance for this role (or function) at the C-level.”
“It is through Deloitte’s approach that leverages a globally aligned storefront of AI-infused offerings, hybrid solutions, managed services, new business incubation, and innovative partnerships and ecosystems that we are able to consistently deliver greater business value and growth,” adds Rudini.
