Kate Hanaghan, Chief Research Officer, explains why this is a must read

Kate Hanaghan“Our team analysed the ten largest players from all angles to understand their ability to support customers who are drowning under a tsunami of information on – and experiences of – GenAI. We want to bring clarity to decision making as buyers decide just who is the best fit for them”. Accenture, Capgemini, Cognizant, and TCS all scored well across the board thanks to their consistently mature approach."

“Whether you are a senior IT decision maker in the Public Sector or a commercial industry, the findings of MRI 5 should provide you with comfort. The current hype and excitement around AI, made even more feverish by the latest GenAI wave, has led many organisations to believe they are behind the curve. But the fact is that this is highly unlikely to be the case, and this remains a nascent market. What is crucial, however, is your choice of supplier and the way in which they support your AI journey.”

This report is designed to help end-user organisations – tech buyers and decision-makers – determine the readiness of tech suppliers to support them as they continue to transform. It provides a unique insight into the profiled companies, based on in-depth research interviews and TechMarketView’s unique scoring model. The Market Readiness Index is a keystone piece of research within the TechMarketView Tech User Programme.

Nowhere else will you find this level of scrutiny across all aspects of a tech supplier’s business and see how it translates into results for their customers."

"In this latest MRI report, we have taken our tried and tested scoring methodology – first established in 2019 - and applied it to understand the readiness of the leading IT services suppliers to support their clients leverage the value from AI. Our extremely thorough analysis cuts through the hype and gets to the bottom of what’s really happening in the market”.
