Why Read This Report

To help clients with complex, enterprisewide initiatives, Forrester recently evaluated the offerings of 11 leading service providers. In this 46-criteria evaluation of (SFDC) implementation services providers, we found that Accenture and Wipro lead the pack because of their practice maturity, depth and breadth of resources, and suitability for larger, more complex deployments. Specialists like Appirio, Bluewolf, Model Metrics, Astadia, and CoreMatrix also fared well in the evaluation due to their deep technology expertise and their heavy focus on SFDC projects. Global consultancy Deloitte scored high, boosted by its capabilities in larger, more transformational deals and its expertise in change management. India-based providers like Cognizant, Infosys, and HCL lead the market with IP-based solutions such as accelerators, prebuilt integrations, and prebuilt test scripts for SFDC.
