    Why Read This Report

    In Forrester's 42-criteria evaluation of IT consolidation consultancies, we found that IBM Global Services (IGS) and Accenture led the pack due to their breadth of capabilities and superior ability in business justification of consolidation efforts. HP Services brings exceptional depth of experience across a wide array of technologies and a strong portfolio of vertical-market solutions. Electronic Data Systems (EDS), a market leader in managed services, draws on the lessons learned through these engagements to deliver a solid portfolio of capabilities in this area. Sun Microsystems Professional Services has gone well beyond its Solaris roots to now provide an admirable stable of consolidation capabilities backed by strong methodologies and quality governance. AT&T Consulting has built a surprisingly strong virtualization core competency that belies its roots in telecommunications services and its smaller comparative size, making it a viable provider in many enterprise markets.
