Channel partner giants like AccentureCapgeminiDeloitte and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) are some of the biggest and best public cloud IT transformation providers across the globe, according to a new report by Gartner.

However, depending on the cloud transformation use case—such as modernizing legacy applications and the ability to share knowledge to customers during IT transformation—the worldwide market leaders vary.

IT research firm Gartner recently scored and ranked the top 20 cloud transformation service providers that includes some of the largest MSPs, system integrators and channel partners with its new 2022 Critical Capabilities for Public Cloud IT Transformation Services report.

Cloud Transformation Key Findings

One of the key findings in Gartner’s new report is that cloud transformation services offered by MSPs, system integrators and cloud service providers are more readily available than ever.

This is a reaction to the significant 41 percent annual growth in infrastructure as-a-service (IaaS) and platform as-a-service (PaaS) cloud services in 2021.

Another finding from Gartner is that business outcome models are increasingly being sought by clients and can be now delivered by many providers. Shorter payment transactions, time to market and increased customer engagement are just a few of the outcomes now being offered, Gartner said.

Gartner’s Scoring System

Gartner ranks each company on a scoring basis from 1.0 to 5.0.

Companies are scored in several areas including their cloud-native and DevSecOps capabilities, as well as their professional and managed services abilities.

Gartner’s Critical Capabilities for Public Cloud IT Transformation Services report offers insight specifically focusing on public cloud transformation, with partners needing to hold specializations or certifications from the likes Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud and/or Microsoft Azure.

The leading companies that made Gartner’sdeliver positive business impacts born from IT transformation with customer engagements being application-led compared to infrastructure-led.

Other key aspects Gartner took into consideration when scoring these companies were their cloud-native engineering, application development, multi-cloud and security compliance capabilities. Companies also needed to show large professional and managed services revenues, skilled employees, and customer-base.
