"In today's constantly changing business landscape, organizations undergo change more often and at a faster pace than ever before," said Tom DeGarmo, principal and U.S. and Global Technology Consulting Leader at PwC. "We know that in order to be successful, these initiatives require proficiency not only in business and industry issues but also across existing and emerging technologies, and through this understanding we help our clients as they embark on significant technology-enabled business transformation."

According to the report, PwC "has worked hard to develop, both organically and inorganically (via acquisitions of Diamond Consulting, BearingPoint's North American entity, and PRTM), its technological capabilities to be on par with its excellent business consulting capabilities. PwC realizes that deep technology expertise is absolutely required for business transformation. In addition, its knowledge capture and management capabilities and its change management approach are outstanding."
