After the COVID-19 epidemic forced companies to accelerate their migration to the cloud, Accenture doubled its digital services by angrily investing in technology.
The company, which has clients in all industries, including health and financial services, acquired a number of cloud-based services in the second quarter.
“We are back to pre-epidemic growth ahead of expectations and are still receiving market share sooner than before the epidemic,” said Accenture CEO Julie Sweet.
“Pre-epidemic rehabilitation is a practice that has been reported by many other IT service companies … all of these companies are mostly digital (organic or acquisitions),” said Wedbush analyst Moses Katri.
