Accenture Named a Leader in Life Sciences Operations by Independent Research Firm Everest Group

NEW YORK; Feb. 28, 2020 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) is positioned as a leader in life sciences operations services in a new report from independent research firm Everest Group.

The report, “Life Sciences Operations – Services PEAK Matrix® Assessment 2020,” examines the changing dynamics of the life sciences operations-services landscape and evaluates 24 service providers on the Everest Group PEAK Matrix — a framework to assess the absolute market impact and overall vision and capability of service providers.

Accenture emerged as a leader in the report due to the company’s “blend of strong strategic consulting services with business operations” and “well-spread-out portfolio across the value chain segment.”

The report notes that “…clients appreciated the service provider’s deep domain knowledge, flexibility, services scalability, and superior technology. They further added that its operational teams are collaborative, well-managed, and deeply integrated within their organization.”

“Enterprises are struggling to access quality data, break silos, increase cross-team collaboration, upgrade legacy systems, deploy digital technologies, and reduce costs,” says Manu Aggarwal, vice president, Everest Group. “Accenture’s strong capabilities in supply chain, clinical, marketing, and consulting — along with its analytics-powered, enterprise-wide INTIENT platform — enable life sciences companies to address related challenges and improve decision-making.”

The report also mentions how Accenture’s “recently launched platform — INTIENT™ — integrates analytics with its established platforms for research, clinical development, pharmacovigilance, and patient services, improving flow of information and generating insights across the LS value chain.”

“INTIENT™ helps life sciences companies apply artificial intelligence and gain meaningful insights from data across complex organizations with greater speed, safety and efficacy,” said Kevin Julian, Accenture senior managing director, INTIENT. That is a significant differentiator for our clients.”
