NBN Co implements a cloud-based IT platform at unprecedented speed, to support Australia’s largest infrastructure project.
NBN Co. needed to quickly design and build the technical infrastructure necessary to support the delivery of new IT capabilities, as well as supporting the production operations and maintenance for the company’s core business capabilities.
Working with Accenture, NBN Co now has a cloud-based IT platform. The first application release was completed within only three months, supporting the fastest roll-out of Oracle E-Business Suite applications.

During 2010, the company building Australia’s National Broadband Network, NBN Co, was working under an aggressive timeline to establish in 14 months the company’s core business capabilities:
NBN Co needed an IT platform that would support the new systems, and NBN Co also had to provide physical desktops, network services and client operations services, to an ever-increasing number of staff.
Working together, Accenture and NBN Co developed a staggered approach to design and build the IT infrastructure.
This approach resulted in reduced installation requirements and hardware commissioning tasks, which in turn reduced the number of IT personnel required to maintain the system.
NBN Co now has an IT platform, set on cloud-based infrastructure, that is agile and dynamic, which reduces project delivery time frames and increases flexibility.
NBN Co achieved its first application release within three months from the start of the project in April 2010.
This was the fastest roll-out of Oracle E-Business Suite applications.
Over the following 15 months, the team provided the IT infrastructure required to deliver 10 major application releases.
