KPMG in, Ovum out: Cloud Analyst Firm Awards

This month’s Analyst Firm Awards celebrate the most valuable analysts and advisors on Cloud. Kea Company has crunched the data from the Analyst Value Survey to find ten firms which, in total, deliver 64% of all the value being delivered worldwide to people using their insight on cloud solutions. Cloud is, along with Strategy, one of the two award categories where the top ten are producing the least value. For outsourcing, for example, the top ten are producing 71% of all analyst value.

Cloud is, along with Strategy, one of the two award categories where the top ten are producing the least value. For outsourcing, for example, the top ten are producing 71% of all analyst value. By the time of the Analyst Firm Awards annual dinner, on September 13, we’ll have seen some notable differences between the 15 firms that are winning the different awards this year.

The ten most valuable analyst firms for cloud, in descending order, are:

  1. Gartner
  2. Forrester Research
  3. HfS Research
  4. IDC
  5. Everest Group
  6. KPMG’s performance is especially notable. Neither it nor Deloitte for into the global top ten, but clearly they are delivering a lot of value on cloud.
  7. Pierre Audoin Consultants
  8. NelsonHall
  9. Deloitte
  10. ISG.

Perhaps the most notable thing about the Cloud awards, however, is what is not there: Ovum. As one of the six most valuable firms globally, Ovum’s relationships with service providers could allow it a stronger position. Sadly, it’s pushed into 11th place for Cloud and fails to pick up this award. 451 Research and Frost & Sullivan also came close. To find out more, sign up for our webinar.
