Capgemini positioned as a Global Leader by Zinnov for its Engineering, Research and Development (ER&D) and Internet of Things (IoT) Services

18 Jan 2021

Capgemini today announced that it has been positioned in the “Leadership Zone” by Zinnov, a leading global management and strategy consulting firm, for its global Engineering, Research and Development (ER&D) services and global Internet of Things (IoT) technology services. The reports acknowledge Capgemini and Altran (part of Capgemini) jointly in these assessments for their combined capabilities and market impact.

Capgemini[1] was recognized for its domain specialization, service maturity, innovation, client spread and scalability in the Zinnov Zones 2020 reports, which evaluated around 60 Global ER&D service providers and 40 global IoT technology service providers respectively.

The ‘Zinnov Zones for ER&D Services – 2020‘ report provides a comprehensive view of the global Engineering R&D (ER&D) space and the impact of COVID-19 on ER&D spending across verticals. Zinnov positioned Capgemini in the ‘Leadership Zone’ for its overall ER&D Services as well as outstanding vertical specific capabilities, including ER&D in Aerospace, Automotive, Industrial, Medical Devices, Telemedicine, Semiconductor, Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), Telecommunication, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). The report also recognized Capgemini’s specialization across Digital Engineering Services, Digital Thread, Telematics, Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), AI Engineering, Enterprise Software ER&D, Software Platform Engineering ER&D, and Cybersecurity — as a testament to its value proposition across the product engineering value chain and manufacturing domain.

”We are proud of this double recognition from Zinnov,” said William Rozé, CEO of Capgemini’s Engineering and R&D Global Business Line. “With the integration of Altran, the world leader in engineering and R&D services, this positioning confirms our market leading capability, including our deep engineering and IT expertise to design, develop and deliver tomorrow’s best-in-class products and services for our clients across industry verticals and markets. In what we call the Intelligent Industry, businesses are transforming their products and operations with the adoption of exponential technologies. We are committed to partner with them in this journey.”

Acknowledging Capgemini’s Leader positioning in the Zinnov Zones assessments, Sidhant Rastogi, Managing Partner at Zinnov said, Capgemini acquired Altran last year and has emerged as the global leader for ER&D services and IoT Services in the Zinnov Zones 2020 assessment. The complementary nature and scale of the combined businesses position the firm as a strategic partner of choice for enabling end-to-end transformation in the ‘Intelligent Industry’ space underpinned by strong next-generation capabilities across Cloud, Edge Computing, IoT, AI and 5G. The combined entity has the largest global delivery network with a presence across all major engineering hubs. The firm’s ability to secure wins across verticals such as automotive, aerospace, telemedicine, and digital thread enablement are testimony to the resilience it has displayed during the COVID-19 pandemic era.”
