    PETERBOROUGH, N.H., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Kennedy Information's Global
 IT Services Report, the premier source for the IT consulting industry, today
 released the publication's annual listing of the world's largest IT services
 firms, plus an additional group of 10 "firms to watch."  IBM and Accenture are
 ranked 1 and 2, respectively, dividing almost 30% of the global IT consulting
 market between them.
     Despite their highly touted growth in recent months, Indian outsourcing
 firms remain in the middle of Kennedy Information's rankings, albeit with
 stronger growth rates than many of the IT consulting leaders.  Indeed, Global
 IT Services Report's analysts predict that Indian outsourcers and offshore
 technology companies will continue to gain the most market share, which they
 identify as a growing trend over the last several years.

     * Accenture                         * ICF Consulting
