Accenture in a statement said that it has deployed the NetSuite OneWorld ERP solution to ensure flexibility and low-cost for the IT infrastructure backbone for the new company. The ERP solution will support the core finance, financial planning and procurement functions, including financial consolidation, multicurrency and tax compliance.
Robin Johns, head of Information Systems at Thames Tideway Tunnel, said: “We selected Accenture for its ability to offer practical solutions to deliver an IT platform that will help facilitate financing and construction of the super sewer, while keeping costs down for customers.”
The Thames Tideway Tunnel is a 25km sewer tunnel which will intercept the 34 most polluting Combined Sewage Overflow (CSO) points along the River Thames. Currently, 39 million tonnes of raw sewage pours into the river after heavy rainfall in a typical year. Work is due to start in 2016, and the project is due for completion in 2023.
Accenture said it has worked on more than 9,000 cloud computing projects for clients, including nearly 75 percent of the Fortune Global 100, and has more than 17,000 professionals trained in cloud computing.
