Accenture and Celonis join forces

Accenture and Celonis have announce a strategic alliance to help organisations gain the insights they need to continuously update and optimise their business processes.

Accenture has embedded Celonis’ data-driven execution management capabilities into its tools and platforms, including myConcerto and SynOps, to provide new levels of transparency and insights to inform decision-making.

The strategic collaboration brings together Accenture’s functional capabilities, with its lifecycle management and automation experience to extend the market-leading process mining and execution management capabilities of Celonis.

The two companies, which have already collaborated on more than 100 client engagements for clients across many industries, are now uniquely positioned to uncover more process inefficiencies for clients, turning insights into instant, data-driven and automated action.

The announcement closely follows the formation of ServiceNow and Celonis’ strategic partnership in October last year.

Phillip Hazen, senior managing director of Intelligent Platform services at Accenture, said: “Business process data and insights are critical for organisations to change and change quickly. Our decades of process improvement experience, combined with the power of Celonis process mining, can help our clients create more intuitive, fact-based and data-driven organisations. Together, we’re delivering significant efficiency gains for our clients at scale, in a fraction of the time.”

Gene Reznik, senior vice president of ecosystem and industries at Celonis, added: “Accenture continues to demonstrate global leadership in delivering the most complex customer projects across industries and geographies. Its ability to drive transformative value by combining technology and process excellence for the world’s most important organisations is remarkable. I’m especially excited about this strategic collaboration as businesses are at an inflection point in how they operate today. There is no limit to the value we can help realize for our mutual clients.”
