At the Dell World 2013, IT enterprise vendor Dell and Accenture announced their go-to-market agreement to develop and sell new offerings designed to deliver improved enterprise efficiency, higher security, and better business outcomes.
Dell says as per the four-year global agreement, they will work to build, implement and manage data center solutions for mid-market and select enterprise customers who want to drive business innovation while controlling costs and reducing risk.
In addition, Dell has signed a four-year agreement with Accenture to develop the joint solutions that support Dell’s global market expansion. The new solutions include Cloud solutions, Application Assured platforms and security services.
Cloud solution was developed with Accenture in partnership with Avanade and utilizes Dell infrastructure solutions, Dell Active System Manager, Dell Services including Support and Deployment Services and Dell’s Software stack.
Application Assured Platforms are specifically crafted infrastructure and application configurations with management software supporting standard business processes and mission critical applications. Avanade will provide support for Microsoft workloads deployed on Dell Active System platforms.
In addition, by combining Dell SecureWorks’ information security services with Accenture and Avanade’s expertise in security consulting, mutual customers can enhance opportunities to protect their IT assets, complying with regulations and reducing their security costs.
“By joining with a technology infrastructure leader like Dell, we have a great opportunity to develop and bring-to-market innovative new solutions that address some of the most pressing needs in IT today,” said Jack Sepple, senior managing director, Infrastructure Services, Accenture.
