A report from HfS Research places Accenture in the “Winner’s Circle” of SAP providers. According to the report, Accenture has shown “excellence in both execution and innovation” in its provision of SAP services.
By HfS’s criteria, Winners Circle service providers have developed “strong relationships with clients, execute services beyond simply hitting green lights and are highly flexible when meeting clients’ needs.”
Additionally, HfS said, Winners Circle providers “have a strong vision, concrete plans to invest in future capabilities, a healthy cross-section of vertical capabilities and a demonstrated ability to leverage external drivers to increase value for their clients.”
The SAP Services HfS Blueprint Report is the second update to cover high-profile IT markets in a series of upcoming HfS Blueprints. Unlike other quadrants and matrices, the HfS Blueprint identifies relevant differentials between service providers across a number of facets under two main categories—innovation and execution.
HfS Blueprint Report ratings are based on a broad range of stakeholders with specific weightings based on 1,079 crowd-sourced responses. Stakeholders include:
To generate its findings, HfS collected more than 850 data points in 2014. The research covered 740 buyers, providers and “advisors/influencers” of SAP services, and HfS evaluated 31 of those providers.
Saying Accenture is the “overall global market leader for SAP Services, covering the whole SAP lifecycle with significant resources in all key geographies,” HfS based its findings on the following criteria:
Accenture’s “very deep relationship with SAP for more than 30 years,” with the recently founded Accenture and SAP Business Solutions Group—“unique in the marketplace”—as the latest partnership innovation
Accenture as the right partner for clients looking for one stop shopping solutions and the full scope of services and hosting, capable of staffing even the largest SAP projects
Client reports of Accenture’s deep capabilities to link generic SAP topics to industry-specific solutions given its long track record of successful business transformation projects
