Accenture has been named a leader in business technology transformation by Forrester Research, Inc.
Forrester®, an independent global research and advisory firm, evaluated 10 companies and cited Accenture as a leader in a July 2012 independent report, “The Forrester Wave™: Business Technology Transformation, Q3 2012,” written by Stephanie Moore.
According to the report, “Accenture’s breadth and depth of offerings and its technology and business process expertise placed it firmly in the Leader category. In addition, Accenture believes that business transformation is the goal of the entire organization, not just a discrete group within Accenture. Thus, its consultants are able to deal with both the technology and business stakeholders.”
“Accenture has outstanding knowledge management capability, and Accenture consultants view the reusable methods and IP and processes as the critical success factor in their everyday activities. Its ability to leverage institutional assets and knowledge allows Accenture more time and flexibility to innovate on behalf of its clients.”
In its report, Forrester discusses changes occurring in the business consulting market landscape. According to Forrester, the demands and challenges facing corporate executives are prompting them to seek help and relief from experts who are as technology savvy as they are business savvy. Forrester believes that business centricity or technology centricity alone will not help companies achieve a meaningful transformation. Instead, Forrester reports, the type of consultancies that are best poised to help their clients develop and execute on their business transformation projects are those that have equal amounts of business and technology acumen.
The 10 service providers were evaluated against 18 specific criteria, which were grouped into three high-level buckets:
Current offering. Forrester evaluated the transformation capability of each service provider and its ability to deliver a balance of both business and technology consulting services.
Strategy. Forrester evaluated the ability of providers to align IT transformation strategy with key business objectives.
Market presence. Forrester analyzed the number of consultants who could be considered dedicated to technology-enabled business transformation, as well as the number of purely technology-focused consultants who could be leveraged for technology-enabled business transformation.
