Deloitte a leader among Applications Implementation Service Providers, Worldwide

NEW YORK, Oct. 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited (DTTL) is pleased to announce that Deloitte member firms have been positioned in the "Leaders" quadrant of Gartner's 2012 Magic Quadrant for Oracle Applications Implementation Service Providers, Worldwide.

Gartner defines "Leaders" as organizations that:

  • are performing well today, gaining traction and mind share in the market;
  • have a clear vision of market direction,
  • are helping clients beyond product road maps,
  • are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.

There are four quadrants: bottom left and right are niche players and visionaries; top left and right are challengers and leaders. They are organized across a side axis titled "ability to execute" and a bottom axis of "completeness of vision."

"Deloitte member firms are proud to be acknowledged by Gartner in the 'Leaders' quadrant," said Nidal Haddad, Global Oracle Alliance leader, DTTL. "This ranking showcases Deloitte member firms' ability to align deep industry experience with Oracle's strategic vision and underscores member firms' commitment to developing solutions that drive value for their clients."

"The Deloitte network is a Diamond partner of Oracle with member firm practices that Gartner estimates to have 11,000 professionals for Oracle applications and technology implementation globally in 2012 contributing approximately 25% of C&I revenues (refer to source). Its focus is the implementation of Oracle Applications and has the methodologies and proprietary tools necessary to establish and execute a complex program," said Haddad.
