NEW YORK; Feb. 1, 2016 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) is positioned furthest and highest in the “Leaders” quadrant within the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Oracle Application Management Services, Worldwide, for both ability to execute and completeness of vision.

With our market-leading Oracle application management services, Accenture is ready to help companies find untapped value in their Oracle environments while transforming them to be highly efficient and digital and cloud-ready.”
