Accenture is a public cloud services leader – Gartner

We believe a transformation emphasis in our clients' cloud-first journey helped us place among public cloud services leaders in Gartner's Magic Quadrant.


Business leaders across industries increasingly seek greater agility and speed through the cloud.

One route, public cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), provides highly automated computing capacity, storage and network resources through leading platforms, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.

Still, these services don’t completely eliminate the need for IT operations management. Clients need expertise to choose the right service elements and configure them appropriately, and to navigate governance and financial management challenges.

Gartner, Inc., recently reviewed 20 cloud services vendors based on execution, customer experience and other measures. We’re proud Gartner placed us among the leaders in its report: Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Service Providers, Worldwide.

We believe our position in the Magic Quadrant reflects an emphasis on helping customers make a cloud-first journey through our cloud-native capabilities, a DevOps philosophy and extensive automation.

We have relationships with the three hyper-scale providers, and we deliver managed services in a variety of models.

Through the Accenture Cloud Platform, which supports all three hyper-scale providers, we provide governance, while still allowing clients to use native, self-service features of the underlying providers.

We believe this recognition is due to our track record with enterprise transformation projects around the world.

Furthermore, we’ve adopted a cloud-first strategy internally and are building our own solutions on the hyper-scale providers.
