Accenture (ACN) and Oracle (ORCL)
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 to help
clients realize the benefits of the cloud faster and with reduced
risk. The Accenture Oracle Business Group brings together the leading
technology, skills and experience from each company to offer
businesses the ability to implement cloud solutions quicker and
easier than previously possible.

The Accenture Oracle Business Group simplifies and streamlines the
buying process for Accenture solutions based on Oracle Cloud
technologies. As a result, customers can more nimbly react to changing
business and economic conditions by leveraging end-to-end
solutions that address their specific business and industry
requirements. The new group will bring breakthrough solutions to
market across a range of industries, with an initial focus on the
public, financial and hospitality services sectors.

“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,” said Stephen Rohleder, group chief executive for
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.”

“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, 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 realize 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. Offerings consist of:

  • 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

The Accenture Oracle Business Group will include experienced
industry specialists and leading solution development and delivery
talent, supported by a dedicated team of sales, marketing, and
technical professionals. Specialists from both Accenture and
Oracle will collaborate to identify business requirements, develop
solutions, execute go-to-market strategies, and help implement
new cloud solutions for clients to achieve their digital
transformation goals.
