Every spring and fall, TBR releases a Management Consulting Benchmark with details on 13 leading vendors, including strategies, performance, positioning, and expectations for the next few years. For most of those consultancies, TBR also publishes individual profiles, providing additional details and analysis. The first of those profiles, on Capgemini, will be released this week, with the following assessment from Senior Analyst Elitsa Bakalova: “Capgemini will continue to grow management consulting revenue in the next two years. A string of acquisitions in the digital segment enables Capgemini to expand into the digital design and consulting space, create a global network of design studios, and gain industry consulting expertise such as through KONEXUS Consulting in the energy and utilities sector. The announced acquisition of Altran will improve Capgemini’s ability to address clients’ IT and operational technology (OT) needs and pull through management consulting opportunities. Capgemini will position as an intelligent industry vendor that can provide solutions around Engineering 4.0 and Industry 4.0. Changes Capgemini made during the past several quarters to its portfolio, organizational structure and sales model enable the company to address demand from clients’ business side, not just in terms of their technology, and strengthen relationships with clients to expand wallet share.”
