Yesterday I published my financial analysis of 4 traditional system integrators: Accenture, Atos Origin, Capgemini and Logica.

I was attended on Twitter to this thoughtless, clumsy, mindless piece by Peter Sayer on PCWorld: Capgemini Consulting, a specialist in strategy and transformation, is about to transform its own strategy for the second time in two years.

First post in a series of 5-10, I will release all my views and opinions on the Art of Integration. I challenge you to disagree, and bash me with arguments and reasoning. Feel free to shoot from the hip and aim at the heart, anything goes really. I am absolutely convinced that I am right [...]
