Analysis by 451 Research has concluded that the Accenture Cloud Platform provides "value-added services and capabilities for enterprise to confidently manage cloud operations with."
In a further nod to the platform’s key strengths, it also notes that the partner model adopted by Accenture allows service providers to focus on core competencies and value-added capabilities, while conserving capital.
In a detailed analysis of the Accenture Cloud Platform, 451 Research—a leading global analyst and data company focused on the business of enterprise IT innovation—observes that many systems integrators view themselves as natural heirs to the future market demand for service-integration services, as well as the development and management of enterprise app stores and associated orchestration services.
The report says that, while that future is not yet assured, Accenture has demonstrated its intent by providing the Accenture Cloud Platform and enabling enterprises to develop "best execution venue" strategies.
Furthermore, the analysts state: "By providing a pre-integrated selection of services through the Accenture Cloud Platform, Accenture can focus on helping clients choose the right products and services for cloud delivery."
Finally, 451 Research says it must be noted that Accenture's asset-light approach is not a departure, but an extension of its core business model, which it has held for years.
