SINGAPORE, November 23, 2022 – According to the IDC MarketScape : Asia/Pacific Salesforce Implementation Services 2022 Vendor Assessment, Accenture, Deloitte, IBM, Infosys, and PwC are identified (in alphabetical order) as “Leaders” among the Salesforce implementation partner ecosystem in Asia/Pacific. These 'Leaders' are closely followed by "Major Players" in the market namely (in alphabetical order) Capgemini, Cognizant, NTT DATA, Samsung SDS, and Wipro.

According to IDC's 2022 Asia/Pacific Software Survey, improving customer experience (CX) and customer satisfaction was one of the top 3 business priorities of enterprises in Asia/Pacific. Enterprises are accelerating their technology-led front-office transformation initiatives to create new experiences. Over the years, Salesforce has positioned itself as an experience transformation enabler capable of converging data and intelligence to transform every aspect of the CX, ensuring there is business value generation throughout the customer journey.

As Salesforce adds new products to its portfolio (Slack, Tableau Software, MuleSoft, Vlocity,, etc.), aligns its go-to-market (GTM) with industry solutions, and ties its value proposition to business outcomes, the implementation of Salesforce solutions has become increasingly complex. Enterprise buyers bank on the expertise of their implementation service partners to enhance (and in some cases, realize) the value of their investments

"The services ecosystem around Salesforce implementation is expected to grow as fast, if not faster, than Salesforce itself in Asia/Pacific. A key reason for this growth is the increasing complexity buyers face in implementing Salesforce and deriving value from the growing portfolio of Salesforce solutions,” says Rijo George Thomas, Research Manager, Software and Services Research, IDC Asia/Pacific. “Vendors that can contextualize solutions for industries and integrate multiple Salesforce solutions to transform experiences will create long-term value for clients," added Thomas.

This IDC MarketScape employs an extremely detailed assessment framework that evaluates vendors on their current ability to support customers with end-to-end Salesforce implementation services, and how well placed they are to grow the adoption of Salesforce solutions with their sound growth strategy in Asia/ Pacific.
