Why Read This Report

In Forrester's 40-criteria evaluation of IT consolidation consultancies, we found that Accenture and HP led the pack due to their breadth of capabilities and superior ability in business justification of consolidation efforts. IBM Global Services brings exceptional depth of experience across a wide array of technologies and a strong portfolio of consolidation disciplines. Fujitsu has strong, broad competencies and is beginning to effectively spread outside of its stronghold in Japan. EMC Consulting, a relative upstart among this group, has built strong competencies on its roots in storage management and data migration. Siemens IT Solutions and Services and Infosys show promise in expanding beyond their outsourcing core competencies, and both now provide an admirable stable of consolidation capabilities backed by strong methodologies and quality governance. Capgemini has a strong consolidation core competency but a smaller comparative size, making it a viable provider in many enterprise markets. The IT consolidation landscape has matured considerably since the last update of this Forrester Wave, and all providers' capabilities are very sound.
