Oracle cloud helper will initially focus on the public, financial and hospitality services sectors
Accenture and Oracle have spun up a business group that will help both firm’s customers to get into cloud computing.
Through the division, customers will use Oracle Cloud with Accenture tools.
Stephen Rohleder, group chief executive for Accenture’s North American operations said: “This is part of our strategy to take advantage of Oracle’s leading technologies and build our business together for the future. It is a game-changer for our clients, Oracle, and Accenture.”
“For the first time, customers have the opportunity to use accelerators, prebuilt adapters and industry-specific extensions with Oracle’s software-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service offerings to accelerate cloud migration, simplify cross-pillar integration and achieve enterprise transformation,” said Thomas Kurian of Oracle’s product management.
The group solutions will be built using Oracle’s software-as-a-service and platform-as-a-service solutions delivered via the Accenture Foundation Platform for Oracle, a multi-component development and integration accelerator running in the Oracle Cloud. Offerings consist of, in Oracle’s own words:
- Pre-integrated enterprise-class cloud solutions and a robust service catalog to help simplify migration to the cloud and accelerate overall innovation
- Dedicated Accenture and Oracle resources, including 52,000 Oracle-skilled consultants globally, with an additional 20,000 Java-skilled professionals. This can help enable end-to-end delivery and maintenance of hardware, middleware and software solutions, helping customers architect a path to the cloud
- Accelerators such as cloud readiness assessments and data migration, testing and training tools which can help reduce the time and risk associated with implementation and shift the focus to innovation and growth
- Vertical solutions and extensions designed to reduce the need for customization while addressing industry and customer requirements
