Accenture Named a Leader in ServiceNow Services by Analyst Firm Everest Group
NEW YORK; Dec. 10, 2020 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been named a “Leader” in Everest Group’s inaugural report, “PEAK Matrix® for ServiceNow Services 2021.” This recognition follows the formation of Accenture Cloud First, which provides the full stack of cloud services to help clients across every industry become "cloud-first" businesses so they can accelerate their digital transformation, innovate faster, and create differentiated, sustainable value.
For the report, Everest Group assessed 20 IT service providers across global consulting, implementation and maintenance/support services for all aspects of the ServiceNow platform, encompassing IT workflows, employee workflows, customer workflows and custom applications. Everest Group’s PEAK Matrix® framework provides an objective, data-driven and comparative analysis of these service providers based on market impact and ability to deliver services successfully, with Accenture leading in the latter.
Among Accenture’s strengths cited in the report include:
- Credible proof-points in executing transformational ServiceNow projects across IT service management and non-IT service management areas;
- Investments in building frameworks and accelerators such as ACV4GOV, industry-aligned frameworks and center of excellence framework to expedite time-to-market;
- Robust talent base for ServiceNow providers, with the largest pool of certified resources among all service providers across all certification streams;
- Relatively higher customer satisfaction than peers over the last year with a greater number of responses, showcasing its ability to deliver end-to-end engagements;
- And its global footprint and strong onshore-centric delivery model.
In addition, the report notes that Accenture’s “advisory services – in guiding clients for creating transformational roadmap, building strategy, and shaping the business case with expertise across ServiceNow…are well acknowledged by clients.”
“Accenture and ServiceNow have a long history of working together to help our clients reimagine their operations in the cloud, and we’ve recently reinforced our alliance with the establishment of the Accenture ServiceNow Business Group,” said Adam Burden, chief software engineer and North America Technology lead at Accenture. “This recognition by Everest Group further validates the significant cloud investments we’ve made globally to accelerate and transform companies to become cloud-first businesses. We look forward to continuing to enable our clients to operate with greater speed and scale and create sustainable value using ServiceNow technologies, as we further build our capabilities and talent expertise.”
Everest Group’s assessment is based on its annual Request for Information process, which considered investments made until May 2020, interactions with leading ServiceNow service providers, client reference checks and an ongoing analysis of the ServiceNow services market.
