Accenture Positioned as a Leader in First IDC MarketScape Report on Professional Services Firms for Mining Companies Worldwide

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been positioned as a leader in the first IDC
MarketScape: Worldwide Professional Services Firms for Mining
Operational Process Optimisation 2018 Vendor Assessment.

Accenture was recognized for its scale in the mining sector and its
ecosystem of alliance partners, which enables the company to create
value for clients, while helping them optimize mining operations. The
report cited several of Accenture’s strengths in serving clients,
including its industry-leading mining domain expertise; its ability to
offer a strong proposition that brings together strategy, digital
capability, employee experience, information technology and business
process services; and the consistent value it provides to clients in a
wide range of engagements.

The report evaluated Accenture and seven other vendors with an
international presence and an established reputation for providing
professional services to help mining companies optimize their
operational environment. Participants had to demonstrate a variety of
unique, mining-specific offerings designed to support core mining
business processes, as well as capabilities in three of these services:
business and IT consulting; systems integration; application
development; IT outsourcing; business process outsourcing; IT deployment
support; and IT education and training. IDC conducted multiple
interviews with mining companies, the end users, for the report.

“We are pleased to be named a leader in this report, and feel this shows
the strong value proposition we offer to the mining industry,” said
Rachael Bartels, a managing director at Accenture who leads the
company’s Chemicals and Natural Resources practice. “We are committed to
helping clients harness the potential of the digital reinvention of
industry – or Industry
X.0 – to unlock value by transforming
their operations. Our strong domain-specific expertise enables us to
collaborate successfully with mining companies across the globe to
digitally transform and optimize their businesses end-to-end. We plan to
further develop the industry-specific offerings which set us apart, to
continue to invest in organic growth and acquisitions, and to help our
clients innovate to better compete in a challenging climate.”

The report noted that Accenture differentiates itself by bringing its
capabilities across its five businesses – Consulting, Strategy, Digital,
Technology and Operations — to deliver end-to-end transformation for
mining clients. It also cited Accenture’s development of
industry-specific solutions like the Connected Mine, its focus on
horizontal digital technology capabilities, and key acquisitions to
extend service capability.

“Accenture’s strong position in the mining sector is demonstrated by its
clients’ recognition of its delivery capability from strategy through to
execution, its leadership and vision in the market, and its change
management support for mining companies,” said Emilie Ditton, Head of
Worldwide Mining Practices, IDC Energy Insights.

In addition to interviews with multiple major mining companies
worldwide, the report is based on vendor briefings and other research
information.
