Accenture Named A Leader In IDC MarketScape: Canadian Cloud Professional Services 2021 Vendor Assessment

Accenture has been named a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Canadian Cloud Professional Services 2021 Vendor Assessment (doc# CA46215320, January 2021).

In this inaugural report, Accenture was named a Leader in part due to its industry expertise, deep technology skills, and strong partnerships with prominent technology players. In addition, the IDC MarketScape sees Accenture differentiating itself in cloud professional services with its investments in a variety of proprietary solutions to accelerate clients’ cloud journeys as well as its aggressive global strategy to help organizations digitally transform and become cloud-first businesses. 

The IDC MarketScape report also noted that Accenture’s cloud clients have a high level of satisfaction, including in its ability to integrate with client teams and its overall delivery strength. Accenture’s offerings provide numerous benefits because of the breadth of functionality and its investment in innovation centres, intellectual property, and employee development that results in a high level of service quality, the report said.

In September 2020, Accenture launched Accenture Cloud First, a new multi-service group of 70,000 cloud professionals, with a $3 billion investment to help clients across all industries rapidly become cloud-first businesses and accelerate their digital transformation to realize greater value at speed and scale.

According to Accenture’s latest report, “Sky High Hopes: Navigating the Barriers to Maximizing Cloud Value,” just 34% of Canadian companies say they are achieving the full value expected on their cloud investments, compared to 37% of companies globally. The report also found that only 18% of Canadian businesses are completely confident that their organization’s cloud migration initiatives will deliver the expected value at the expected time

In this study, the IDC MarketScape evaluated Accenture and nine other cloud professional service providers. Participation in this study was determined based on annual revenue from cloud professional services in Canada, official consulting or integration partner status for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform or IBM Cloud, and an active Canadian presence with at least 50 professionals.
