Accenture Named Market Leader in Ovum Decision Matrix: Market Leaders in North American Applications Services, 2018–19
NEW YORK; June 19, 2018 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) is named as the overall Market Leader in the Ovum Decision Matrix report on application services, “Ovum Decision Matrix: Market Leaders in North American Applications Services, 2018–19.” The report assesses seven leading systems integrators that are active in the North America market and have built substantial application development and maintenance (ADM) businesses.
After assessing companies’ information around their ADM businesses, Ovum evaluated their products and services across three dimensions:
- The Capability Matrix evaluates the scale and scope of current offerings, pricing and delivery models, and complementary/value-add capabilities such as consulting and agile transformation.
- Strategy Execution examines management vision and strategy, investments and thought leadership.
- Market Impact looks at revenue growth, and client size and growth, and customer engagement.
Accenture scored the highest in all three areas, positioning the company as the Market Leader with the highest overall score. Ovum attributed this outcome to large-scale, long-term client relationships and its end-to-end application transformation portfolio, including Accenture myWizard®, an intelligent enterprise automation platform.
“We are pleased to hear that Accenture was named the overall market leader in Ovum’s Decision Matrix this year” said Annette Rippert, senior managing director, Accenture Technology, North America. “We believe that Ovum’s recognition affirms our company’s strong strategy.
