OREANDA-NEWS. Capgemini Consulting, the global strategy and transformation consulting arm of the Capgemini Group, has been named a Digital Consulting Leader in the ALM Intelligence (formerly Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory) Competitive Landscape Analysis report titled Digital Customer Strategy & Experience Consulting. Capgemini Consulting was featured as a "Full Spectrum Digital Specialist" based on its degree of digital consulting specialization and scope of its digital consulting capabilities. It was also recognized as a "Best-of-Breed provider" in the Digital Business Process Transformation sub-category for its experience in digitizing and redesigning business processes. 

The ALM Intelligence report categorized providers in four main areas based on the way they approach the digital customer strategy and experience consulting market:

  • Digital Execution Generalists.

According to the report’s author Brendan Williams, "Capgemini Consulting takes a very focused approach to the market, concentrating its efforts on large transformations within specific priority sectors, including manufacturing, CPG, transport and logistics and financial services. Capgemini Consulting’s strength in this market is the result of a clear and deliberate strategy to become a leader in digital consulting. The firm’s success in executing this strategy can be explained by three main factors: foresight, boldness and focus."

Capgemini Consulting has also been featured among select providers with the ALM Vanguard status for Digital Customer Strategy & Experience Consulting. It was positively positioned for the breadth and depth of its consulting capabilities. It was also recognized as a ‘Best of Breed’ provider detailing its strength in this area as “the result of its deep experience digitizing and redesigning business processes, guided by a comprehensive framework developed in cooperation with Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and employed in the service of the firm’s singular focus on assisting clients with the largest, most complex digital transformations."

Didier Bonnet, Corporate Vice President & Global Digital Transformation Practice Leader at Capgemini Consulting said: "We are extremely proud to be recognized again by ALM Intelligence as a pioneer and a leader in Digital Transformation Consulting. Six years ago we decided to focus our entire consulting practice on helping our clients transition to a digital future. In that period, we have invested constantly, in both skills and thought leadership, to remain at the cutting edge of this digital revolution, I am pleased that this focus is being recognized today both by our clients and by consulting analysts. Our conviction remains that these kinds of transformation cannot be successful through solely technology-centric programs. Our approach will remain based on blending the possibilities offered by new digital technologies with an alignment of strategy, operations, processes, organization and people. That’s, in our view, the only way to get performance outcomes and real business benefits out of these programs."

Capgemini Consulting has been cited by ALM Intelligence previously in May 2013 (known then as Kennedy Consulting Research & Advisory), as the only Digital Specialist in its "Digital Strategy Consulting" research.

According to the report, Capgemini Consulting continues to be recognized as a Digital Purist.
