Why Accenture was named a leader
Accenture is recognized as a proven provider in the supply chain space, with a differentiated end-to-end approach that helps companies unlock the full value that Oracle SCM Cloud can provide:
Unlike many competitors, Accenture does not treat a supply chain transformation as a pure technology change nor does the company tackle it in a siloed way.
Accenture sees the adoption of cloud accelerating over the next three to five years and is making a $3 billion investment over a three-year period to help clients move to cloud computing faster.
Relationship and interaction with Oracle client sales teams make a positive contribution to overall success.
Being in contact and partnering early in the client communications and interactions helps ensure a better understanding of the Oracle SCM Cloud and improve the client expectations and experience.
The company has the ability to scale globally, with depth across the globe and brings the power of expertise across strategy and consulting, technology, and operations with over 70,000 cloud professionals with technical, change management, and deep industry skills.
"Accenture’s … strength lies in bringing all the pieces together (both across clients’ supply chain functions and across the whole transformation process from strategy to continuous improvement)"
