Accenture received the highest assessment for its vision and capabilities ahead of all competitors. Its strengths highlighted in the report include:

“Enterprises across industry verticals are looking to demystify the hype around blockchain technology. As enterprises identify relevant business use cases and move towards scaling their PoCs, they face challenges such as technology complexity; lack of talent, industry and data standards; and absence of tools for quality assurance. Service providers are supporting the enterprise blockchain adoption journey by investing in building solutions, developing talent, playing the role of the blockchain technology ecosystem orchestrator,” said Ronak Doshi, practice director, Everest Group. “Investments in research leading to patents, studios for rapid prototyping, geographically distributed innovation labs, talent, partnerships, open source contribution, and consortia efforts have helped Accenture to differentiate in the blockchain services market. Strong positive client feedback, along with its ability to leverage accelerators/IPs into the engagement and technical expertise across blockchain technologies have helped Accenture position itself as a Leader on the 2019 Everest Group Blockchain Services PEAK MatrixTM.”
