Today, business transformation is often, at its core, about technology transformation. At the very least, business transformation is always technology-enabled, which raises important questions about which types of consultants can best help clients envision and execute their business transformation imperatives. In the past, high-level business process transformation initiatives were the domain of brand-name business consulting vendors such as McKinsey & Company, Bain & Company, and The Boston Consulting Group. However, many technology-focused IT services and consulting firms that formerly executed the transformation blueprints developed by the management consultants are now making a dent in the traditional consulting marketplace. They are doing this by marrying their technology competency with increasing levels of vertical and horizontal domain and business consulting expertise. The recently revamped Wipro Consulting Services (WCS) is an example of this new breed of management consulting practice. In the right areas, WCS can give even the best of the classic management consulting firms strong competition.
