Accenture Wins Three Oracle Excellence Awards For Specialized Partner Of The Year – North America In Technology, Engineered Systems And Utilities

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) was awarded the 2012 Oracle Excellence Awards for Specialized Partner of the Year – North America in three categories today at Oracle OpenWorld in San Francisco.

Accenture was honored for its work in technology momentum, engineered systems momentum and utilities. The Oracle Excellence Awards for Specialized Partner of the Year - North America encourages innovation by Oracle PartnerNetwork (OPN) members, who use Oracle’s products and technology to create value for customers and generate new business potential.

The awards reflect Accenture’s success in adopting OPN’s Specialized approach which is aimed at enabling partners to establish industry recognition by following a formal process to become Specialized in key Oracle solution areas.

Since the award program was launched in 2004, Accenture has won a total of 14 Oracle awards in North America. This is its fifth award for technology momentum in seven years. Accenture’s awards were in the categories of:

Technology Momentum: This award recognizes Accenture’s efforts to increase customer acceptance and market share of Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware. Over the past year, Accenture increased its investment in Oracle technology, including the Accenture Foundation Platform for Oracle (AFPO), a reference architecture and implementation guide pre-integrated with more than 30 Oracle Fusion Middleware products. AFPO helps to reduce implementation efforts by as much as 30 percent while increasing quality and reducing risk. AFPO delivers a functioning development environment on day one so that clients can begin customizing and integrating the very next day. In the past year, adoption of AFPO grew from 14 clients to more than 50.

Engineered Systems Momentum: This award recognizes outstanding partner contributions to Oracle’s continuing strategy to increase customer acceptance for Oracle Engineered Systems and generate new Oracle business. Across Oracle’s technology portfolio, Accenture developed repeatable assets on the Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud and Oracle Exadata Database Machine engineered systems.

In March, Accenture used an Oracle Exalytics machine to create a powerful proof of concept using Oracle Business Intelligence Foundation Suite, Oracle TimesTen, Oracle Essbase and Oracle Endeca Commerce to show clients how predictive analytics across both structured and unstructured data can drive decision making at all levels of the enterprise. Using publically available data from the New York Stock Exchange, the proof of concept showed how Oracle’s latest technologies can enhance an existing business intelligence system—in this example, by quickly analyzing and aggregating 350 million stock exchange trades into a meaningful presentation to enable faster decision making by investment fund managers.
