San Francisco selects Accenture to employ financial management system


Accenture said the City and County of San Francisco has selected the company to implement a new financial management system.

The initiative aligns with the City and County’s goals of strengthening their long-term financial health and fostering investment and innovation.

Accenture said the system will be built on the customized Accenture Enterprise Services for Government platform, including Oracle’s PeopleSoft Financial Management software and Business Intelligence software.

“Strong financial management capabilities and practices are critically important to help a world-class city like San Francisco continue to thrive and prosper,” said Jens Egerland, who leads Accenture’s public-sector work in California.

“We will bring multi-disciplinary capabilities – including our global cities practice and functional expertise in financial management, procurement systems and change management – to help San Francisco modernize its financial management tools and structure.”

Yesterday, Accenture said it has enhanced the Accenture Cloud Platform in such a way that users can reduce time to implement new cloud solutions. 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.
