Accenture Positioned as a Leader in IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Mobile Application Development, Testing, Management, and Infrastructure Services 2014 Vendor Assessment

Accenture (NYSE:ACN) has been positioned as a “Leader” in International Data Corporation’s (IDC) recent report “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Mobile Application Development, Testing, Management, and Infrastructure Services 2014 Vendor Assessment."

IDC assessed 14 organizations that offer mobile application development, testing, management, and infrastructure (mADTMI) services to enterprise-class firms for this report.

This IDC study represents a vendor assessment of providers offering enterprise mobile application development, testing, management, and infrastructure (mADTMI) services through the IDC MarketScape model. The assessment reviews both quantitative and qualitative characteristics that define current market demands and expected buyer needs for mADTMI services.

In naming Accenture as a Leader worldwide, the IDC MarketScape stated that “Accenture earned high marks for its global delivery capability; use of mostly commercially available tools to build, test, and manage mobile applications (compared with use of private/custom tools); and level of R&D investment into its mobile application development practice. In customer interviews, Accenture's customers cited that the provider's strengths spanned a variety of business and technical know-how areas…and an ability to establish and forge strong partnership bonds with its clients.”

“Our designation as a leader in this report is a reflection of the business value we deliver every day to our clients around the world,” said Jin Lee, senior managing director, Accenture Mobility, part of Accenture Digital. “As applications continue to become an increasingly important and complex component of our clients’ mobility strategies, we’re able to work together with them throughout the application lifecycle, from ideation to build and ongoing performance management. Our proven app testing capabilities are also of growing significance to clients, as end-to-end testing is a requirement of a successful Connected Devices strategy. With our skilled and experienced teams creating innovative tools to help our clients get the most out of their mobile apps, it’s rewarding to see that the close relationships we’ve formed with those clients played such a key role in securing our ‘leader’ ranking.”

"The surge of mobility continues to engulf enterprise activities when it comes to applications,” said Pete Marston, research manager, Application Development, Testing, and Management Services (ADTMS), IDC. “Many early adopter organizations of mobile applications have achieved business benefits from their mobile applications, and a frenzy has ignited other organizations to mobile enable their business applications to enhance employee productivity, enhance customer service, and reduce activity costs."
