Accenture and Oracle have launched a new business group to jointly help customers embrace the cloud to achieve their digital transformation goals.
Through the group, Accenture and Oracle will deliver industry-specific solutions built on the Oracle Cloud, under the banner of the Accenture Oracle Business Group.
According to both parties, the group brings together the “technology, skills and experience” from each company to better enable businesses to implement cloud solutions going forward.
“Building on our 23-year alliance relationship, the Accenture Oracle Business Group combines Accenture’s deep industry and technology experience with Oracle’s expansive set of cloud solutions to deliver client value not found elsewhere in the market today,” says Stephen Rohleder, Group CEO, North America, Accenture.
“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.”
Furthermore, the Accenture Oracle Business Group streamlines the buying process for Accenture solutions based on Oracle Cloud technologies, while also bringing solutions to market across a range of industries, with an initial focus on the public, financial and hospitality services sectors.
“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,” adds Thomas Kurian, president, Product Development, Oracle.
“By providing a single process to implement end-to-end mission- critical services, the Accenture Oracle Business Group is ideally positioned to help our customers realise the true benefits of cloud computing.”
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.
