These professionals bridge the areas of IT and business, focusing on the systems development life cycle. Technical consultants and business analysts are able to identify client needs and devise and implement the technical solutions to fulfill those needs, serving in both an advisory and operational capacity.

Not all consulting is third party and performed by an external entity. The majority of large corporations have some form of internal consulting groups which perform functions like project management, business development, and corporate strategy/implementation.
Advisory Services Consultant
Dominated by the big 4 accounting firms of Ernst & Young, PWC, Deloitte, and KPMG, advisory services include broader services such as risk management, transaction advisory, and other general business consulting services. These areas contrast to other divisions which are not audit or tax services.
