NEW YORK, NY, USA, 21 February 2020 — Gartner, the world’s leading information technology and advisory company, named Deloitte a leader in its February 2020 report titled, Magic Quadrant for Data and Analytics Service Providers. Deloitte was recognized for its ability to execute and completeness of vision.
“We have entered the ‘Age of With,’ where the collaboration of humans with intelligent machines becomes paramount to success. Deloitte’s breadth of capabilities, from AI-led Strategy to delivering AI-enabled services, help clients become insight driven and drive value out of their investments in AI, Analytics and Automation” says Costi Perricos, Deloitte Global Analytics & Cognitive leader. “As we look to the future, Deloitte will continue to expand the reach, depth and breadth of these capabilities to provide differentiated value to clients across the globe.”
The 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant evaluated 20 leading data and analytics services providers. According to Gartner, “Data and analytics service providers enable the delivery of selective initiatives focused on trusted data-driven insights and decision making for business leaders. This research helps guide data and analytics leaders in the evaluation phase of service providers.”
Leaders are defined by Gartner as those who “Provide offerings that meet demand in data and analytics services, as well as demonstrate the vision necessary to sustain their position as requirements for asset-based consulting and services evolve in the market. Leaders innovate in products, services and pricing, take chances and typically respond to a wide market audience by supporting broad market requirements in an attempt to help shape the market. This includes delivering business-outcome-focused D&A solutions across all levels of the Gartner Business Analytics Framework. However, Leaders may fail to meet the specific needs of more-specialized segments (e.g., technology, application, geographic and process segments).”
“We believe that our AI-led approach and cross functional capabilities across business lines – including tax, risk, audit and consulting – has the potential to re-shape companies, solve their most complex challenges and change how they do business,” says Nitin Mittal, US Analytics & AI Co-leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “In this era, we believe that organizations must leverage humans with machines to drive competitive advantage, improve business operations and achieve better outcomes.”
“As organizations continue to adopt AI, it is important for the Board, C-Suite, and business leaders to incorporate a risk and ethics framework as a key governance component of their programs,” says Irfan Saif, US Analytics & AI Co-leader, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “We are using this approach to help clients advance their AI programs quickly while maintaining robust governance around key AI topics such as algorithm bias.”
