Study Identifies Key Attributes of IT Consulting and Systems Integration Leaders

Report Reveals How Top IT Companies Achieved Market Prominence

PETERBOROUGH, NH -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 13, 2005 -- New research from consulting industry analysts Kennedy Information profiles the top IT consulting and systems integration firms in the U.S. and abroad. The IT Consulting & Systems Integration Leaders: Profiles and Key Firm Data report presents profiles in eight categories, resulting in a detailed portrait of how each company views and approaches the IT consulting and systems integration market. Total revenues for the analyzed group topped $68 billion in 2004, representing 36 percent of the global consulting and integration market.

"After a focus on expansion in outsourcing and management practices over the past several years, many leaders indicate that their firms will be placing more emphasis on the consulting and integration businesses," says Brad Smith, Kennedy Information's VP of Research. While management services are growing quickly, many firms stated that consulting and integration services are still important to support client objectives for the long term, Smith said.

Detailed profiles for each firm include a review of Organizational Structure and Strategy, Leadership (key decision makers), Revenue Breakdown (by service and geography), Service Offerings, Recent News and Key Signings, Strategic Initiatives/Directions, and Kennedy's analysis of the firm's strengths and weaknesses.
