​IDC reveals ‘leaders’ in the Microsoft enterprise applications implementation services market

Vendors' R&D and innovation skills showed the greatest differentiation during the evaluation, notes IDC research director Gard Little

Accenture/Avanade, HCL, and TCS are the "leaders" among vendors participating in the worldwide Microsoft enterprise applications implementation services market, according to a new report from IDC.

The analysis revealed that buyers believe the primary characteristic required for a Microsoft enterprise applications services project to be successful at a worldwide level was the "ability to achieve desired business outcomes”, says IDC in a statement.

The study, IDC MarketScape : Worldwide Microsoft Enterprise Applications Implementation Services Ecosystem 2015 Vendor Assessment, profiles 10 vendors participating in the worldwide Microsoft enterprise applications implementation services market.
