KPMG recognized as a leader among top global consultancy firms 

The International Data Corporation (IDC) has named KPMG as a leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Business Consulting Services 2013 Vendor Analysis (doc #239484, February 2013). The IDC MarketScape evaluates the capabilities and business strategies of 10 global business practices, in conjunction with overall customer satisfaction.

Specifically, the IDC MarketScape positions KPMG among those consulting organizations “most capable of maximizing the value of the project.” Further input from buyers outlines KPMG’s key strengths to be their ability to challenge corporate culture, create value through innovation and improve commercial performance.

“Our success as a firm depends on our ability to create value for our clients. That is, and always will be, our number one priority,” commented Mark A. Goodburn, Global Head of Advisory, KPMG International.

KPMG also received top marks among member firm clients for work in regulatory compliance and integrating risk awareness and solutions into other consulting engagements. Special praise was given for independence in technology and outsourcing advisory.

Overall, buyers were positive about working alongside KPMG member firms stating they are professional, efficient, innovative, reliable and focused on delivering quality service.

“The IDC MarketScape report is a testament to the talent of our people, the breadth and depth of our technical expertise, and our deep industry insights,” according to Goodburn. Consequently, we continue to grow and expand our capabilities worldwide so that we may be of even greater value not only today, but also in the future.”
