Winning strategy

  • Various market players such as Accenture, TCS, Capgemini, KPMG, and Deloitte have been focusing on increasing their client base through building internal strategies and providing affordable pricing.
  • IBM Corp. has been investing heavily in R&D to transform its cognitive solutions for the healthcare industry.
