DWP started working with IT Consultancy, Xantus in 2010 (subsequently acquired by KPMG in 2011).
“Through regular commentary in the national and tech press, we quickly built up a strong reputation for the quality of our work, awards and recognitions, and as a leading thought leader in the market place. This positioning undoubtedly contributed to attracting the attention of now owner, KPMG.”
By developing and targeting content towards CIOs/CTOs/IT Directors within FTSE100 companies and large government departments, DWP exceeded both the overall and national media coverage targets in 2010 and 2011. For one executive report (also written by DWP), 30 press hits were achieved in the CIO/IT and public sector press.
Xantus was acquired by KPMG in October 2011 and DWP has continued to work for KPMG CIO Advisory since this time. In May 2016 DWP launched the largest IT Leadership survey in the world for KPMG and Harvey Nash. Surveying over 3,300 IT leaders from over 80 countries, the report generated widespread media coverage, including: Computer Weekly, ZDnet, Computing and Computer Business Review. The findings of the report were also featured in The Times report, The Future CIO and DWP also placed comment pieces in key media, including, one on Cloud in IT Pro Portal and one on the development of the Creative CIO in Computer Weekly. more…
