Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has been positioned as a “Leader” in IDC’s recently
published report, “IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Oracle Implementation Ecosystem

systems integration ecosystem through the IDC MarketScape model.

IDC assessed 12 of the largest Oracle applications systems integrators for

comprehensive set of services for Oracle in the market and is one of Oracle's
global partners. Accenture is known for its vertical industry specialization
and industry-tailored solutions, global delivery capability, and breadth of
service — including strategy, business consulting, systems integration,

large-scale businesses and governments.”

“Accenture’s being named a leader in this report is an affirmation of our
extensive track record of Oracle systems implementations worldwide,” said
Derek Steelberg, global managing director of Oracle business for Accenture.
“Looking ahead, we will continue to help our clients gain the most business
value from their Oracle implementations by leveraging our global network,
industry experience and strong alliance with Oracle, combined with investments
in innovative Oracle-based solutions for vertical industries, customer
experience, analytics, mobility and engineered systems.”

IDC divides potential key strategy measures for success into two primary
categories: capabilities and strategies. IDC specifically noted three areas of
strength for Accenture: ability to integrate teams, capability to provide
functional insights and ability to manage changes in project scope.
