Accenture Named Leader In Business Technology Transformation

Stocks in this article: ACN

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named a Leader in Business Technology Transformation by Forrester Research, Inc.

Forrester®, an independent global research and advisory firm, evaluated 10 companies and included Accenture as a Leader in a July 2012 independent report titled, “The Forrester Wave : Business Technology Transformation, Q3 2012.”

“We believe Accenture’s Leader position in the Forrester Wave is a testament to our proven global capabilities and innovative approach to complex technology-enabled business transformations,” said Marty Cole, group chief executive, Technology at Accenture. “Our passion is helping our clients transform their businesses by applying a unique blend of broad industry knowledge, superior technology proficiencies, and exceptional business process management capabilities.”

The 10 vendors were evaluated against 18 specific criteria, which were grouped into three high-level buckets:

  • Current offering. Forrester evaluated the transformation capability of each vendor, including assessing their ability to deliver a balance of both technology consulting and business consulting services.
  • Strategy. Forrester evaluated the ability of providers to align IT transformation strategy with key business objectives.
  • Market presence. Forrester analyzed the number of consultants who could be considered dedicated to technology-enabled business transformation, as well as the number of purely technology-focused consultants who could be leveraged for technology-enabled business transformation.

According to the report, “Accenture’s breadth and depth of offerings and its technology and business process expertise placed it firmly in the Leader category. In addition, Accenture believes that business transformation is the goal of the entire organization, not just a discrete group within Accenture. Thus, its consultants are able to deal with both the technology and business stakeholders. Accenture has outstanding knowledge management capability, and Accenture consultants view the reusable methods and IP and processes as the critical success factor in their everyday activities. Its ability to leverage institutional assets and knowledge allows Accenture more time and flexibility to innovate on behalf of its clients.”
