NEW YORK, March 6, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PwC US today announced its recognition as a leader in the February, 2013 "The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Mobility Services, Q1 2013" report by Forrester Research, Inc.
"The proliferation of mobile devices in the workplace has created tremendous opportunity for businesses. However, organizations must understand how to create a proactive enterprise mobility strategy that remains flexible and adaptable as these technologies continue to evolve," said Tom DeGarmo, principal and U.S. and Global Technology Consulting Leader at PwC. "We believe this recognition underscores our ability to help companies see ideas through to execution and use enterprise mobility to their advantage in enhancing and strengthening both customer experiences and employee relationships."
The report states, "PwC is an excellent choice for clients who want third-party help with business strategy and process consulting and industry expertise combined with security, risk and compliance, strong program management, and governance as part of their enterprise mobility initiative. Acquisitions such as Ant's Eye View augment the PwC skill set with specialist talent for mobile. PwC has strong mobile offerings for mobile banking (consumer and commercial), mobile payment (NFC and digital wallets), telco, retail, pharmaceutical (drug management), mobile device manufacturing, and mobile patient health management, as well as other domains. Clients of PwC should expect a strong, robust, and holistic approach to enterprise mobility; however, PwC has a smaller pool of pure technical application developers than some of its leading competitors in enterprise mobility services."
PwC was among 13 leading global services providers that Forrester assessed based on a 15-criteria emerging markets evaluation. These criteria were grouped into three categories – current offering, strategy, and market presence. The report also highlights that PwC, along with other vendors "has capabilities across the full spectrum of skills, from user experience to process consulting to technical development to support" and that the firm has "built some productized IP and solutions and started to pioneer new and innovative pricing models."
