The FINANCIAL — Accenture has been placed in the leading position in two new Everest Group PEAK Matrix reports about mobility services in the global banking and the global insurance industries.
The PEAK Matrix is a framework to assess the relative market success and overall capability of service providers based on Performance, Experience, Ability and Knowledge (PEAK) in an industry. The reports noted that Accenture had created a differentiated position in both the banking and insurance markets by helping provide enterprises with the skills, resources and scalable end-to-end mobility solutions that utilise leading edge technologies and span the spectrum of offerings necessary to face the challenges of market evolution, according to Accenture.
“Mobility is a vital tool for a successful digital transformation,” said Ankur Seth, Practice Director, Everest Group. “In both the global banking and insurance assessments, Accenture was positioned as a Leader. Deep industry experience, strong technology capabilities and its role as a key player in an ecosystem that enables businesses to take advantage of the very latest technological advances for growth helps Accenture clients succeed, as they address the challenges of rapid market evolution.”
In the PEAK Matrix for mobility services in global banking, Everest Group analyzed the capabilities of 17 leading technology service providers, specific to mobility in this sector. Accenture was positioned as a Leader, with comprehensive set of solutions across transaction banking, payments and mobile wallets, as well as application, device and content management services. The report noted Accenture’s strong design and end-to-end capabilities for mobility projects, from consultation stages to ongoing support.
The PEAK Matrix for mobility services in global insurance analyzed the capabilities of 12 mobility service providers in the insurance sector, and again Accenture was positioned as a Leader. A strong ecosystem, range of in-house proprietary technologies and an industrialized portfolio of mobility assets were some of the strengths noted as contributing to the driving of tangible business outcomes for Accenture clients.
“By working closely with our colleagues and clients in the banking and insurance industries, we’ve been able to gain unparalleled experience as to how mobility can transform and grow businesses,” said Jim Bailey, senior managing director, Accenture Digital – Mobility. “Accenture is at the center of the digital ecosystem, and as such, our clients get the solutions best suited to overcoming their challenges and addressing their business objectives, not undertaking technology projects for the sake of it. The Everest Group’s reports demonstrate that Accenture’s approach to digital transformation has delivered real business results for insurance and banking clients to date, and we will continue to invest in and test new technologies for our clients in both sectors to benefit from.”
