Accenture: reaffirming its position as the best consultancy firm

Accenture is often rated as the best consultancy firm and certainly claims first place when ranking by revenue - US$17.3bn in 2019 according to - but it has had this status reaffirmed by Oracle, who named Accenture its Partner of the Year 2019. According to Oracle, the factor that clinched the award for Accenture was its commitment to assisting clients with leveraging the cloud capabilities to accelerate market growth.

“The award signals our promise to helping clients evolve into intelligent enterprises with Oracle technologies,” said Thinus Greyling, Principal Director for Business and Technology Integration at Accenture in Africa. “It also reflects our ability to deliver for clients in Africa as they embark on their digital transformation journeys — now and moving forward.”

Accenture assists a number of companies with digital transformations, but its commitment to Oracle has been exemplary through its clear communication regarding financial and technical trends in the industry and its alignment to Oracle’s visions for the Cloud. “Through our Liquid Studio, we are able to work side-by-side with clients for intensive experimentation to quickly turn ideas into innovative applications and solutions, leveraging Oracle Cloud technologies such as Autonomous, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Chatbots,” said Greyling.  


Accenture has implemented Oracle Cloud technologies to assist Oracle’s customers in better handling data, transforming it into valuable analytics. “We help clients apply innovation so they can anticipate and prepare for the next wave of technology disruption. Our clients get access to our unmatched global and industry expertise across the full suite of Oracle Cloud solutions,” he says.

Accenture has over 54,000 consultants trained in Oracle platforms to assist the implementation of its solutions around the world, continuing to honour a 25-year partnership.
