In Forrester’s latest report on AI consultancies, titled “The Forrester Wave: AI Consultancies In Asia Pacific Q2, 2021,” Accenture is cited as a leader. Accenture scored higher than any other vendor in the present offering, strategy, and market presence categories among 12 different vendors in the independent research firm’s assessment, which was aimed at analysing the capabilities of AI providers.
Accenture’s “delivery capabilities are top-class across the board,” according to the report, and the company is “extremely effective at AI strategy, AI culture, and realising the business impact.” Accenture’s industry experience, seamless delivery from strategy to execution, and ability to help customers develop a data-driven culture was mentioned by reference clients.
“Accenture is the only vendor reviewed that continues to develop joint ventures with its largest customers,” the report adds. It’s handy for sophisticated AI reference usage cases. Accenture is the clear choice for large-scale, enterprise-wide AI transformations, particularly for clients in Accenture‘s core geographies looking for a co-investment partner to help them achieve their goals.” “Accenture’s coverage of the Asia Pacific area is extensive,” the research continues, “with Japan being its strongest market, followed by Australia/New Zealand (ANZ) and Southeast Asia/ASEAN.”
Accenture achieved the maximum possible score; in the strategy category, regional roadmap, services strategy, business model, AI for delivery, and partner ecosystem; and in the market presence category, APAC customers, APAC AI revenue, and APAC AI deployments.
“We are happy to be named a leader by Forrester. Our APAC clients are equally enthusiastic about incorporating AI into the core of their organisations to help them make better decisions and address today’s and tomorrow’s most difficult problems. Senthil Ramani, Growth Markets lead, Accenture Applied Intelligence, said, “We try to go above and beyond to achieve greater gains in AI and reimagine what it means to be data-driven.” The firm is truly an AI consultancy leader.
