Adapting the IT Environment
Through the transformation to a digital enterprise, your organization becomes more fit, fast and flexible with a global operating model that extends the reach of your ERP from core functions to consumer-facing areas of the business. The IT services to support the new nimble business should also be scalable and agile. Outsourcing various IT functions can meet the needs of the digital enterprise and also reduce risk, increase efficiency and save money.
Service options. Pay-per-use IT services may include application development, application outsourcing and infrastructure outsourcing. Accenture helps clients to reduce application costs from 20 to 50 percent and increase speed to market by 10 to 50 percent through agile application development. Network outsourcing can improve scalability, minimize network downtime and reduce network operating costs by 10 to 20 percent. An outsourcing partner can also identify smaller service units (development, testing, training or infrastructure management services) and offer one standard interface at a set price.
Industry-specific. Accenture enables continuous improvement in cost, service levels and innovation through our ongoing investments in SAP solutions. We have created the Accenture Consumer Goods Solution Factory for SAP to suit all SAP demands, providing companies with best-practice solutions based on deep industry insights.
Cloud-based. Cloud computing has fundamentally changed the landscape of technology and business, allowing its adopters to access standard technology services and also harness emerging technologies such as social media, mobility, big data and advanced analytics. Unlike in a traditional IT environment, cloud services are available 24/7, enabling predictability of price and service.
Reliable, scalable IT services that drive efficiency are a must for a digital enterprise in today’s nonstop CPG environment.
