How Pierre Audoin Consultants hit the mainstream

On December 17 we ran a webinar to take a closer look at Pierre Audoin Consultants (PAC).  Close watchers of the services industry will need no introduction to PAC, one of Europe’s oldest industry analyst firms. The sort of projects it wins are instructive: it has been appointed by the EC to lead a consortium “to help define the future of the software industry in Europe”. The global research network it has through tight alliances with similar firms headquartered outside Europe, like Select and Springboard, gives it a read edge on hot topics like the establishment of cheap offshore centres: something which the recession has put on the top of everyone’s list.

There are a number of reasons to take a closer took at the firm: it’s grown in a challenging period; it’s increasingly used a second opinion; after almost 35 years it’s a firm that may start to look at M&A options; it’s starting to expand its reach into end-users.

Clients can get a recording of the webinar: just email us.
