Accenture Wins “Technology Advisory House of the Year” Award

NEW YORK: Accenture Wins “Technology Advisory House of the Year” Award from Energy Risk Magazine for 5th Consecutive Year – For excellence in serving clients across global commodity markets Technology Advisory House of the Year award by Energy Risk magazine has been awarded to Accenture marking the fifth consecutive year winning this prestigious award.

The award-selection team considered Accenture’s double-digit revenue growth in 2019 as a key indicator of its impact in helping commodity trading clients streamline operations, integrate newly acquired businesses, enter new commodity markets, and optimize their end-to-end value chains. This growth was achieved through the delivery of services across a spread of areas, including digital transformation, trading platform modernization and managed services, big data, and analytics solutions, and trade lifecycle automation.

Accenture continued to excel in its core advisory and implementation space within the past year by partnering with quite 50 clients to deliver trading-transformation projects. The projects included one among the most important gas trading and risk management implementations in history and more recently a critical “remote go-live” at a Canadian integrated energy company during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Within Suncor, the availability Trading & Optimization (ST&O) group has undertaken a multi-year ‘Transformation’ program to grow our people, processes, and technology to position the group to drive incremental value amid conjunction with this program, Accenture was chosen as our trusted technology advisor to assist in developing and implementing our technology roadmap. Together we recently delivered a powerful ‘remote go live’ of two key technology systems that will support this journey. Accenture’s guidance has been key to the success of progressing the technology portion of this program and helping establish the inspiration for Supply Trading & Optimization’s future growth ambitions.”

Baris Ertan, who leads Accenture’s Trading & Commercial practice globally, said, “Our work with Suncor and other trading clients is extremely rewarding and receiving the “Energy Risk magazine award is an honor that testifies to the broad range of services and therefore the quality and value of our team’s delivery.”

By working with the best maximizing operational efficiency, digitizing and automating operations, increasing competitiveness, and extracting the complete value our clients are laser-focused on their asset mix — all of which became even more important during a time of low oil prices and therefore the COVID-19 pandemic. We are actively working with clients in transitioning to low-carbon energy, that specializes in customer centricity, and driving further improvements across their commercial operations.”

Accenture also received the Technology Advisory House of the Year award in 2019, 2018, 2017 and 2016. Structure Group, which Accenture acquired in 2015, received the award in 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012 and 2010.
