NEW YORK, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- KPMG was cited as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: IT Organization Redesign Consultancies, Q4 2012 report, which examined the offerings and capabilities of seven organizations to help Chief Information Officers.

The Forrester Research, Inc. report said KPMG is one of the organizations that showed "excellence in nearly all areas of redesign" and is one of the "global leaders in the redesign of IT shops."  It was also one of the firms praised for "strong methodologies; experienced, highly trained consultants; quality of delivery; and ability to handle the most difficult business and IT problems."

"We think this recognition is a testament to our ability to drive this critical component of the CIO Agenda," he said. "Our global methodologies and tools are proven, and our people are experienced and objective.  This helps us develop a unique and customized approach for each client."
