The advanced version is also designed to meet the cost efficiency and optimization of information technology. Accenture said users can also take advantage of the flexibility and economics of an As-a-Service operating model, where IT and business services are delivered on-demand via the cloud.
“Organizations of all sizes are increasingly adopting As-a-Service operating models as they look for greater operational agility, and doing so requires the right cloud management tools,” said Jack Sepple, group technology officer & senior managing director, Cloud and Security at Accenture.
“This release of the Accenture Cloud Platform improves organizational capabilities to manage cloud sprawl, reducing the time needed to deploy cloud resources while providing a greater ability to innovate and integrate new solutions into the cloud quicker than ever.”
The advanced version is also expected to enhance the governance and control of cloud management. Key features of the advanced version are a cloud mover, cross cloud transparency, ServiceNow integration, cloud consumption control and cloud bill management .
Accenture said the cloud platform is slated to go live in November.
In September, Accenture announced its deal to acquire Cloud Sherpas, a provider of cloud advisory and technology services specializing in Google, Salesforce and ServiceNow. Accenture aims to improve its cloud services offerings to enterprises. Cloud strategy, technology consulting, and cloud application implementation, integration and management services will be some of the Accenture offerings in the cloud segment by the acquisition.
