Called the “Accenture AWS Business Group”, this partnership brings together professionals from each company with expertise in cloud solutions architecture and development, marketing, sales and business development. The business group will develop and deliver services and solutions that unify business process re-engineering, application migration services, architecture design and application development for the AWS Cloud.

According to Omar Abbosh, chief strategy officer at Accenture, cloud is increasingly becoming a starting point among the company’s clients for their enterprise solutions, so that the Accenture AWS Business Group is but a key part of its Accenture Cloud First agenda. “Whether our clients need to innovate faster, create new services, or maximize value from their investments, the Accenture AWS Business Group will help them get there faster, with lower risk and with solutions optimized for AWS,” Abbosh said.

Initially, the Accenture AWS Business Group will focus on two main business areas: transformation services optimized for AWS (i.e. provide services to clients to move their existing applications to and develop new applications on AWS); and analytics and big data services, powered by AWS (e.g. expansion of the Accenture Insights Platform to integrate AWS data and analytics capabilities).

The new business group will similarly explore the creation of new services in such areas as the Internet of Things (IoT) and security on the AWS Cloud.
