Accenture Ranked No. 1 Overall in HFS Inaugural Report on Digital Change Management Providers

NEW YORK; April 17, 2019 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been ranked No. 1 overall in HFS Research’s inaugural Top Ten Report for Digital Change Management Providers 2018 and also received the No. 1 ranking in the Ability to Execute category.

The ranking assessed service providers’ digital change prowess across five critical components of driving impact in digital operations: embracing value levers; creating true partnerships; promoting principles of the digital OneOffice; enabling change management for digital labor; and driving real business outcomes. Accenture received the top overall ranking, ahead of the nine other leading providers that HFS assessed alongside Accenture: Capgemini, Cognizant, EY, Genpact, IBM, Infosys, KPMG, TCS and Wipro.

“Digital change management is the key to success in today’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA) world,” said Saurabh Gupta, HFS Research’s chief strategy officer. “Accenture’s unmatched ability to consult and execute, and their well-rounded portfolio across OneOffice, put it ahead of the other companies up for this ranking.”

The report notes Accenture’s “unmatched ability to consult and execute,” stating, “While the Big-4 have strong consulting capabilities and other leading SI players offer delivery scale, no other industry player is able to bring together both and deliver innovation at scale.”

Other Accenture strengths the report highlights include:

“The C-suite is moving beyond thinking digital transformation is only about using technology, to understanding the importance of leveraging their biggest investment—employees—in order to fuel development of new business areas,” said Eva-Sage Gavin, who leads Accenture’s Talent & Organization practice globally. “By supporting these organizations, as they deliver value and unlock the potential of their employees, we are not only increasing their enterprise agility for a more rapid market response, but also supporting them to benefit from new opportunities in a constantly disrupted and ever-changing market.”
