Accenture Ranked as Leading Provider Across Execution, Innovation and Voice of Customer Criteria

NEW YORK; April 22, 2021 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been recognized as the number one service provider for hyperscaler cloud services in a recent report from industry analyst firm HFS Research.

“Cloud hyperscalers are unleashing incredible new capabilities in the market, and Accenture continues to translate how these burgeoning technologies can drive stronger business outcomes through our human ingenuity,” said Karthik Narain, global lead of Accenture Cloud First. “Our recognition by HFS as the leading provider shows that Accenture continues to rise to the top because we have one of the broadest and deepest investments in cloud to date and can help clients create a blueprint for success through people, technology, process and industry know-how.”

The inaugural “HFS Top 10 for Hyperscaler Cloud Service Providers” report assessed 12 hyperscaler cloud service providers for their innovation and execution capabilities on services across the cloud services value stream, and scale to provide global and cross industry services. Accenture was ranked number one or number two in ten of the eleven categories evaluated.

According to HFS Research, as organizations move toward a cloud native business model for their technology and business, they must consider how to effectively migrate their technology assets, data, and workloads into private and public networks. Service providers can play a large role in this migration and offer talent, methodologies, and solutions to assist and sustain these efforts.

“The journey to Cloud native is about a migration of the business to the cloud, not just the technology. These service providers are enabling companies to follow a cloud services value stream to achieve desired goals for their people, process, and culture while amplifying their customer’s OneOffice,” said Joel Martin, vice president of Cloud Strategies at HFS Research. “Ranking number one overall, Accenture is a solution-rich provider leading with business-first innovation and bolstering talent through acquisitions.”
