ARMONK, N.Y. - 14 May 2015: IBM (NYSE: IBM) announced today that IBM Global Business Services has been named a leader in the new IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Digital Transformation Consulting and System Integration Services 2015 Vendor Assessment.

The IDC MarketScape report cited the “future business strategy and future offering strategy of IBM as its greatest strengths.” Additionally, according to IDC analysis and buyers’ perceptions, IBM was rated very highly for its ability to meet digital transformation project timelines.

According to a recent IBM Institute for Business Value study, Digital Reinvention: Preparing for a Very Different Tomorrow, most organizations have not prepared for the “digitally-charged future.” In fact, more than 60 percent of CEOs told IBM that they have yet to form an integrated physical and digital strategy. IBM Interactive Experience -- recently named the largest global digital agency for the second consecutive year -- brings the physical and digital worlds together to create market-leading experiences. 

“Industries and companies are being radically disrupted by the forces of digital transformation, and the pace of change is greater than any other time in history,” said Paul Papas, Global Leader, IBM Interactive Experience. “IBM combines big data and analytics, industry consulting and world-class design to help our clients take an experience driven approach to digital transformation. At IBM, digital is in our DNA, and we are thrilled to be recognized by IDC as a leader for our unmatched digital transformation capabilities.” 

The IDC MarketScape study evaluated vendors across a variety of key success factors, including their ability to achieve desired business outcomes, and the ability to deliver innovation that produces results.
