Deloitte named a leader among application modernisation and migration services providers by independent research firm

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 12 August 2021 — Deloitte announced today that it has been named a Leader in Forrester’s recent report, The Forrester Wave™: Application Modernization And Migration Services, Q3 2021. Deloitte is recognised for partnering with customers for business transformation and its strength in both technical and business acumen, that goes beyond a cookie-cutter approach, as noted by customer references.

Forrester included 14 vendors in the assessment. The report notes that application and migration services customers should look for providers that deliver breadth of capability, a differentiating vision for applications, and ongoing commitment to this market. According to Forrester, the market for application modernisation and migration services is witnessing a continued shift towards modernisation enabled by cloud-native technologies, with a correspondingly lower emphasis on infrastructure-led lift-and-shift migration. Hyperscale cloud providers have also become central to customers’ migration and modernisation journeys.
