Accenture Named a Leader in Gartner’s Inaugural Magic Quadrant for Oracle Cloud Applications Services, Worldwide

NEW YORK; July 23, 2019 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2019 “Magic Quadrant for Oracle Cloud Applications Services, Worldwide [1]” and is positioned highest for its ability to execute. This is the first time that Gartner has published a report, “support[ing] sourcing, procurement and vendor management leaders in their Oracle Cloud Applications [OCA] service vendor selection.”

According to the report, “the use of cloud computing has reached mainstream.” The report goes on to add, “Gartner predicts demand to be sustained through 2022, during which time the cloud-related IT services market is expected to grow at a five-year compound annual growth rate of 20.5 percent.” What’s more, “by 2021, 55% of Oracle’s on-premises customers will have moved 80% of their on-premises capabilities to Oracle Cloud Applications.”

“More than ever, successful digital transformation with cloud technologies means the difference between being a market leader or becoming obsolete. To succeed in this environment, business leaders need an ecosystem partner with global reach, proven industry capability and continuous investment in innovation, which we provide at Accenture,” said Philip Hazen, senior managing director, Intelligent Platform Services at Accenture. “We believe that being named a Leader by Gartner reflects our strong track record in implementing Oracle Cloud Applications, and our commitment to helping our clients achieve optimal business outcomes with Oracle technologies.”

For this report, Gartner evaluated 18 service providers based on completeness of vision and ability to execute worldwide. In order to be considered for inclusion, “each vendor project must have an ‘anchoring’ OCA product from at least one of the solutions identified in the Oracle Cloud Excellence Implementer (CEI) program on the Oracle PartnerNetwork website. Currently this is version 3787137 and consists of cloud service modules that cover: customer experience (CX), enterprise program management (EPM), ERP, human capital management (HCM) and supply chain management (SCM).”
