Deloitte receives 'Strong Positive' rating in leading analyst firm’s Enterprise GRC Consulting Services Marketscope Report
New York, 27 April 2011 — Leading analyst firm Gartner rated Deloitte member firms (Deloitte) a “strong positive” for capabilities in enterprise governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) services. Gartner, a U.S.-based research and advisory company, assigned its highest possible rating to Deloitte in a new report, Marketscope for Global Enterprise Governance, Risk Management and Compliance Consulting Services.
According to Mark Layton, Global Managing Director for Governance and Risk Management, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited: “We believe that Gartner’s ‘strong positive’ rating confirms Deloitte’s exceptional credentials for helping clients address complex risk and governance challenges.”
Layton continued, “In evaluating Deloitte’s capabilities, Gartner spoke with more than a dozen Deloitte clients around the world. I am especially proud that it was member firm clients that gave Deloitte its highest scores.”
According to the Gartner report, “The market for enterprise GRC services is driven by board- and senior executive-level concerns about business uncertainty, including business risks and regulatory compliance. As the global financial crisis transitions to recovery, enterprises are seeking to mitigate the impact of ongoing risks and increasing compliance requirements on business performance and growth objectives.”
Gartner’s Marketscope rating includes recommendations to customers and potential customers of the rated firms. When considering or currently working with a firm rated “strong positive,” Gartner suggests that existing customers “continue with planned investments” and that potential customers “consider this vendor a strong choice for strategic investments.”
