I am happy to share that “The Forrester Wave™: AI Consultancies In Asia Pacific, Q3 2019” is now live.

For the first time, we are evaluating the service offerings for AI consulting services in Asia Pacific (AP). In our 24-criterion evaluation of AI consultancies in Asia Pacific, we identified the 10 most significant ones — Absolutdata, Accenture, Cognizant, Deloitte, EY, IBM, KPMG, NEC, PwC, and Tech Mahindra — and researched, analyzed, and scored them.

When selecting an AI service partner, the provider’s regional experience and the presence of relevant skills in your location is a key decision criterion, therefore we have evaluated all providers based on their offerings and services available to clients in AP.

Surprisingly, it’s not the depth and breadth of AI solutions that separate leading AI consultancies from the rest. The market in AP is still maturing, and even built-out AI solutions have yet to attain a level at which they consistently drive innovation and direct business impact.

To see how the evaluated vendors stack up, Forrester clients can find the full report here — but keep in mind that the written report just scratches the surface of the full evaluation. Download the interactive scorecard tool and use it to customize the Forrester Wave model for your organization’s objectives.

If you’re interested in digging deeper into the findings of the evaluation or want to discuss AI consultancies in Asia Pacific more broadly, please schedule an inquiry.

Meanwhile, I’m working on a follow-up report, “Applying The Forrester Wave™: AI Consultancies In Asia Pacific, Q3 2019,” to help CIOs looking for AI consulting services to better leverage this Wave. In this upcoming report, we’ll compile additional insights shared by customers in conversations with Forrester during the evaluation process. Stay tuned!
