Accenture Named as a Leader in Gartner’s 2019 Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Services, Worldwide

April 8, 2019

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 8, 2019--Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been recognized as a Leader in the 2019 edition of Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Managed Services, Worldwide report; the third consecutive year it has been recognized in this position.

Compared to the previous year, Accenture has improved its position on the completeness of vision axis. Completeness of vision assesses vendors against criteria including market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy, offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy, innovation, and geographic strategy.

For the report, Gartner analyzed the capabilities of 19 companies that deliver managed cloud and professional services relating to infrastructure and platform operations on a worldwide basis.

“To unlock the full value of the cloud, our investments have focused on helping clients apply new technologies now in order to harness the possibilities for superior business outcomes,” said Kishore Durg, cloud and growth & strategy lead at Accenture Technology Services. “While the pace of transformation will differ from industry to industry, one thing is for sure: piecemeal cloud deployments won’t deliver the value businesses need. That’s why we’ve developed a product strategy and a client engagement model that helps organizations undertake this complex transformation. We believe our consecutive recognition by Gartner validates that our Cloud-First strategy works, and that businesses can continue to rely on Accenture to optimize their cloud journey.”
