The Top 10 Tech Consulting Companies in the US

Artificial intelligence (AI) is forecast to contribute $15.7 trillion to the global economy. It’s no wonder that more and more organizations are rushing to innovate their processes to stay ahead of the tech curve: Amid the ongoing tech arms race, we live and work in a digitalized world where AI, automation, data analytics, and real-time insights reign supreme. 

Needless to say, the ever-growing tech space is huge, and the next couple of years are expected to see greater adoption amid accelerated growth in generative AI and experimentation. What’s more, the business case for adopting tech is only growing—insights from McKinsey show that 63% of companies who adopted AI in 2023 reported an increase in revenue.

With all this ongoing innovation and demand, you might expect digitalizing processes to be somewhat straightforward. Unfortunately, that’s not often the case for most organizations. While the need for tech is growing, there is no sign of its integration becoming simpler. This is where tech consultants come in handy.
