The report analyzed how well oil and gas clients' needs were met by providers in business process services (BPS), information technology services and engineering services across the value chain in the upstream, midstream and downstream sectors. The strongest performers like Accenture demonstrated truly collaborative relationships with clients and invested in future capabilities in talent and technology to increase value delivered over time. They also best incorporated the eight ideals of the As-a-Service economy to flexibly engage and manage resources to deliver services with targeted outcomes.

"We're so pleased to have achieved a market-leading position in this report, which recognizes the impact we have had when helping clients navigate the energy industry's many challenges.

In the report, Accenture was commended for the depth of its domain-specific expertise and capabilities, industry vision, co-innovation with partners, successful integration of partner services and large scale application of automation in BPS service delivery. Accenture was also recognized for its continued innovation in digitally transforming clients' businesses and delivering solutions across the value chain in an As-A-Service model, to drive cost and schedule performance improvements.

"In an industry seeking to drive new business models and efficiency, Accenture's formidable end-to-end digital transformation capabilities and consulting-led As-a-Service solutions allow clients to plug into its innovation-driven expertise," said Nontawat. "Accenture also continues to invest heavily in strategic partnerships that deliver business value to clients. Both clients and partners also highlight the value that Accenture's Energy Hubs and Centers of Excellence bring in developing solutions and imagining business transformation journeys."

The key strengths HfS Research highlighted for Accenture in the report included:
  • Partnerships: Accenture has the most comprehensive ecosystem of technology, platform, automation, business services and industry-specific partners, and is expanding some of its most strategic partnerships. Accenture is making investments in relationships, identifying business value and executing joint go-to-market plans.

They enable co-creation with clients and drive education and the ability to scale opportunities at pace. Accenture offers oil and gas clients access to R&D via its labs.
  • Significant Progress in The Move to As-a-Service: Accenture is actively offering and delivering As-a-Service contracting models with the prevalence of new digital services, promoting outcome-based models and As-a-Service structures in new deals.
  • Continued Focus on Integration of Digital, Consulting, BPS and Technology for Energy Operations: Services across the value chain are delivered by different business units.
