Accenture tops IBM

Accenture is cashing in on the systems integration market, says IDC

As ICT executives again increase their use of systems integrators to help align technology and business needs, the market has a new leader — Accenture.

Accenture has knocked IBM from the spot it has dominated since IDC began tracking the systems integration market in the late 1990s. In a recent report, IDC analysts say Accenture is cashing in on a market that is on the upswing.

“After years of sluggish returns and historic lows, the worldwide [systems-integration services] market experienced moderate growth of about 4% in 2005,” according to IDC.

Accenture, meanwhile, grew its revenues 8% in 2005, IDC says.

Stephanie Torto, IDC programme manager for systems-integration business strategies, says improved economic conditions have enabled companies to once again spend on systems integration.
