Capgemini, a global leader in consulting, technology and outsourcing services, announced today that it was named Star Performer of the Year both for Overall IT Services as well as Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) Services in Everest Group’s PEAK Matrix Service Provider of the Year™ awards. This recognition acknowledges that throughout 2016 Capgemini earned the highest number of star ratings2 in Overall IT Services as well as top recognition for tremendous growth in its BFSI portfolio.
“The unprecedented disruption in the services market is causing services companies to re-think their strategies to maintain growth and differentiation. Everest Group’s 2017 IT Service Provider of the Year Awards recognize service providers who demonstrate consistent top performance across the 21 IT services PEAK Matrix evaluations published in 2016,” said Eric Simonson, Managing Partner, Everest Group. “Capgemini’s achievement, as Star Performer of The Year – for overall IT services and Banking, Financial Services, and Insurance, reflects the strong momentum it has gathered in its growth journey.’’
“Earning the largest number of Star recognitions in Everest Group’s PEAK Matrix assessments in 2016 is an extraordinary acknowledgement of our achievements across the board in overall IT and Financial Services industry expertise,” said Thierry Delaporte, Group Executive Board Member, responsible for Financial Services at Capgemini. "In our Financial Services practice, we are seeing many more clients choose us as a strategic co-innovation partner for their digital transformation journeys. Recognition of our capabilities by Everest Group is a gold standard endorsement of our skills and results. It motivates us even more to continue to be an innovation and digital leader in Financial Services.”
Capgemini was ranked as a Star Performer across seven PEAK Matrix™ assessments that Everest Group produced around BFSI research in 2016. These PEAK Matrix evaluations are a valuable resource for IT services buyers by providing selection guidance, as well as nuanced insights into those providers’ strategies for key business lines, geographies, and technologies. Star Performer distinction is awarded to service providers that demonstrate the strongest forward movement over time on specific PEAK Matrix characteristics.
In 2016, Everest Group published 21 PEAK Matrix IT services evaluations featuring 73 service providers across all evaluations. To recognize consistent, best-of-the-best, top performers across all PEAK Matrix assessments, Everest began publishing the PEAK Matrix Service Provider of the Year awards last year.
