News Release

NEW YORK, NY, USA, 27 May 2021 — Deloitte a Leader for the second time in a row in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Artificial Intelligence Services 2021 Vendor Assessment (doc# US46741921, May 2021). The IDC MarketScape recognises Deloitte as a Leader based on capabilities and strategies such as providing strong customer service and high-quality resources and transferring knowledge to clients for internal management of AI solutions.

In defining the market, the IDC MarketScape shares, “AI services are utilised to assess, plan, design, implement, and operate the following: AI software platforms provide the tools and technologies to analyse, organise, access and provide advisory services based on a range of structured and unstructured information; AI applications include cognitively enabled process and industry applications that automatically learn, discover, and make recommendations or predictions; AI enables the automation of rule-based tasks and processes enabled by software tools that were formerly performed by a human.”

“Deloitte is honoured to be recognised as a Leader in worldwide artificial intelligence services,” says Costi Perricos, Deloitte Global AI & Data leader. “Deloitte firms deliver value to their clients by focusing on embedding AI capabilities globally across major industries and domains. Deloitte will continue to bring strategy-led, human-centred and sustainable outcomes in the Age of WithTM.”

On the vendor inclusion criteria, the report notes, “This research includes analysis of 19 AI services providers with broad portfolios spanning IDC's research coverage and with global scale. This assessment is designed to evaluate the characteristics of each firm — as opposed to its size or the breadth of its services.”

“We’re proud to be recognised as a distinguished provider of AI-FueledTM solutions,” says Nitin Mittal, US AI Co-Leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Through the Deloitte Center for AI Computing, powered by NVIDIA DGX™ A100 systems, we bring together the deep AI experience, services, capabilities, and infrastructure our clients need to accelerate their journey from AI experimentation to scale.”

“To capitalise on the promise of AI at scale, organisations must deploy AI technologies in a fair, ethical and trustworthy way,” adds Irfan Saif, US AI Co-Leader, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “Through the Deloitte AI InstituteTM, we are using the Trustworthy AITM framework to guide our clients’ organisations to develop appropriate safeguards and ensure the ethical use of AI.”
