NEW YORK; September 19, 2018 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been positioned as "Best in Class" in Pierre Audoin Consultants (PAC)’s inaugural analysis of software-as-a-service (SaaS) implementation providers in Europe. Accenture is ranked ahead of all providers included in the “Oracle SaaS Implementation and Integration Services in Europe 2018” report.

The report assessed competence and relative market strength of service providers for top SaaS platforms across Europe. Accenture, which has a business group dedicated to delivering solutions built on Oracle Cloud capabilities, was lauded for its consulting resources, scope of solutions, project experience and vendor awards.
