Asia-Pacific regional report ranks Accenture highest in both strategy
and current offering categories, with clients calling out innovation

SINGAPORE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Accenture (NYSE:ACN) has been positioned as a Leader in the new report: The
Forrester Wave™: BI Platform Implementation Service Providers in
Asia-Pacific, Q3 2017
. Accenture received the highest score in both
the ‘strategy’ and ‘current offering’ categories in the report, which
evaluated the 11 most significant service providers in Asia Pacific.

Accenture achieved the highest score possible in 14 of the 18 criteria
used to measure each provider, including for client experience, industry
vertical expertise, innovation, management consulting expertise and its
number of BI partners. This meant Accenture was the top ranked provider
on both the ‘strategy’ and ‘current offering’ axes of this Forrester

According to Forrester, “Reference clients rated Accenture highly across
the board and specifically called out its innovation capabilities; the
company consistently brings new approaches to solving business problems.
Its ability to lead the change in client businesses was also highlighted
as a strength.”

The report stated that “Accenture has the muscle and discipline to
implement your BI platforms,” and noted that “with the most BI
professionals, and more than 400 BI-related patents awarded or pending,
Accenture uses a very disciplined approach to deploy BI solutions for
its clients”. It also stated that Accenture goes to market with three
main themes for helping clients apply intelligence to their business,
including “the employment of design thinking to make insights easier to
consume, the evolution from earlier-generation BI to new BI, and the
emergence of artificial intelligence in BI and analytics.”

“We think this report recognized something we believe to be fundamental:
that our clients need to transition into data-native businesses that are
digital at the core, innovating beyond Business Intelligence to unlock
new value” said Amit Bansal, managing director and APAC delivery lead at
Accenture Analytics, part of Accenture Digital. “We are extremely proud
to have been recognized as a leader in the report, with the highest
scores in both the strategy and current offering categories, and will
continue to help our clients across the region become the disruptors,
not the disrupted, by embedding analytics across the enterprise to
create new opportunities.”

The report noted that Accenture has delivered more than 600 BI
implementation projects during the past two years, and can scale up to
large transformational programs, or scale down to smaller, tactical BI
