Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been positioned in the “Leaders” quadrant of Gartner, Inc.’s recently published “Magic Quadrant for Business Operations Consulting, Worldwide.” 1
Gartner assessed 10 business consulting service providers for the Magic Quadrant, which focuses on operations consulting capabilities, including strategy and transformation services supporting CEOs, COOs, chief supply chain officers, chief procurement officers and other leaders. In conducting this analysis, Gartner’s scope included product innovation and life cycle management, supply chain management and sourcing and procurement. Gartner’s analysis included information drawn from interviews with the providers’ clients.
The Gartner report said that leaders “are performing well today, gaining traction and mind share in the market; they have a clear vision of market direction and are actively building competencies to sustain their leadership position in the market.” 2
“We believe that being positioned in the Leaders quadrant of this Gartner report is a testament to the quality and breadth of services Accenture delivers to clients to help them create dynamic operations capable of responding to volatility in the business environment,” said Mark Pearson, managing director - Accenture Operations Consulting Services. “Such dynamic operations are flexible enough to quickly help assimilate data that informs management decisions and drives agile execution.”Among the factors weighted heavily by Gartner in this analysis of Accenture and other providers are the nature of the services and related capabilities providers offer; their market responsiveness and track record for responding to changing customer needs and market dynamics; customer experience with the providers; their ability to understand and respond to buyer needs; and their offering strategy. Considered equally important in the evaluation were the providers’ business models and underlying business proposition; their strategy for directing resources, skills and offerings to meet client needs in various market segments and the innovation with which the providers brought their vision to the client services.
