Furthermore, the study profiles business trends and growth strategies among key players in the same market.Although high growth continues in the Japan business consulting market, service providers are involved in various activities, from optimizing digital project-oriented systems that are meant to capture strong demand, to reinforcing delivery personnel and using design processes intended to bring practice in line with strategy. IDC believes that the market promises high growth from 2017 onward and that this growth will not simply be an expansion of conventional business consulting. Instead, digital transformation (DX) will become a ubiquitous topic in all industries and business domains, which will accompany qualitative changes to the market itself, including a diversification of market players.IDC believes that business consulting service providers that support DX will need to emphasize their capabilities from three perspectives: business, digital, and design. In the medium term, significant competitive advantage will likely revolve around how consultants integrate these capabilities to support their clients' DX. Business consulting service providers will need to focus on establishing systems that offer value through the integration of these three capabilities, states IDC Japan IT Services Senior Market Analyst Takuya Uemura.This is a summarized to reduce the gap in time since the original version was published.All of the following sections are, however, fully translated:IDC OpinionMethodologyDefinitionExecutive SummaryEssential GuidanceSynopsis
