Accenture 'largest Oracle Cloud integrator in A/NZ'

11 Dec 2018

Accenture has bought out Oracle Software-as-a-Service provider PrimeQ, which now makes Accenture the largest Oracle Cloud systems integrator in Australia and New Zealand.

Accenture says the acquisition of PrimeQ boosts its Oracle capabilities, and also delivers new value to clients by funnelling their digital transformation initiatives through Oracle Cloud.

PrimeQ, established in 2016, provides Oracle Cloud to a number of sectors, including government, health, and public services. It also serves client across retail, consumer goods, and financial services.

The two companies will take advantage of deep Oracle Cloud experience, transformational capabilities, and industry knowledge to enable customers’ journeys to cloud.

“PrimeQ has extensive experience implementing Oracle SaaS Cloud solutions, which complements Accenture’s established credentials across the Oracle Cloud portfolio,” comments Accenture New Zealand lead Justin Gray.

“They are a highly valued Oracle ecosystem partner, bringing an impressive track record and top talent that will help drive significant results for our clients.” 

In 2017 and 2018 PrimeQ scooped the Oracle Specialised Partner of the Year award for ERP Cloud – New Zealand and Australia. It also won a number of other awards across both years.

“PrimeQ is very pleased to join Accenture as it will help create good outcomes for our customers, our people and our shareholders,” comments PrimeQ CEO, Andrew McAdams. 

“Together, Accenture and PrimeQ will provide our clients with unrivalled Oracle services and enable them to accelerate their digital transformation.”

Accenture’s PrimeQ acquisition is one of a number of major deals the company has struck around the world. Accenture has also acquired DAZ Systems in the United States of America, and Certus Solutions in the United Kingdom.

The company says these acquisitions add to its global capabilities in delivering digital transformation on Oracle Cloud.

The company has more than 54,000 Oracle-skills consultants around the world. They implement Oracle-based business solutions and new business processes for clients that develop and evolve as their digital business grows.

Accenture says it has been a systems integrator partner for more than 25 years. It is a Global Cloud Elite and Platinum level member of the Oracle Partner Network. 

Accenture is also certified as an Oracle Cloud Excellence Implementer.
