Accenture Positioned as a “Leader” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Service Providers in China for the Third Consecutive Year

SHANGHAI; Nov. 20, 2014 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named a “Leader” in Gartner Inc.’s recently published “Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Application Service Providers, China.1” This marks the third consecutive year for Accenture to be recognized as a Leader in this report.

In this year’s report, Gartner assessed 19 multinational, regional and local providers of enterprise application service in China on two primary criteria – “completeness of vision” and “ability to execute.” The report evaluated each provider’s consulting and implementation services for packaged enterprise application software, as well as a provider’s ability to service multiple industries, to service targeted market segments, and to provide services for the selected applications within its service portfolio in China.

“We believe our Leader position for three consecutive years in this Gartner Magic Quadrant report underscores the value Accenture delivers to clients through enterprise application services across industries, as well as our ability to leverage social, mobile, analytics and cloud technologies to drive digital transformation.” said Marco Cassinadri, Technology Lead of Accenture Greater China. “With our strong workforce in the China Delivery Centers and innovations from the Beijing Technology Lab, we are committed to helping our clients to excel in their journey to become a digital business.”

Gartner assessed each provider on their ability to execute and their completeness of vision, using client references, background briefings, news releases and other analyst interactions as the basis for designating each provider’s position in the Magic Quadrant.
