With the increasing pace of geopolitical and technological change, it is crucial for the defence community to embrace innovation, intelligent solutions and emerging technologies to deal with growing threats and stay ahead of adversaries.

Join Accenture at LAND FORCES 2018 from 4th to 6th September 2018 in Adelaide

LAND FORCES 2018 is a premier event, bringing together army and land defence decision makers as well as military, government, scientific and industry leaders from Australia and the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.



Wednesday 5th September 2018
Rooms L2 and L3 on Ground Level
Adelaide Convention Centre
13:30 – 17:00

The defence community is grappling with disruptive forces which impact supply chain visibility, configuration management, quality control, authentification of supply, certification of people and machines as well as software lifecycle management.

These are just a few of the challenges that defence organisations are grappling with as an industry naturally characterised by complex products, deep supply chains, and a decades-long aftermarket. Significant investment, effort, and technology have yielded great progress in these areas, but continued innovation and future-focus is essential to capitalise on emerging technology and remain relevant and ahead of adversaries.

You are invited to join the Accenture Australia leadership team for an afternoon of learning and collaboration:

Capturing Growth and Efficiency Through Rapidly Emerging Technologies

Join us as we dive into the defence perspective of our Accenture Technology Vision 2018 which highlights emerging technology trends that will have a significant impact across the industry in the next 3 years. Let’s discuss what is actionable today in the defence community.

Come and experience an interactive design-led thinking session to familiarise yourself with emerging technologies, get inspired and develop innovative ideas for new services and operating models. This approach adopts a design mindset and human-centric method to solve problems, frame opportunities and achieve innovation at speed.

Rounding up the afternoon, a panel of expert guest speakers including Alan Tsen, General Manager, Stone and Chalk; Professor Jason Potts from the Blockchain Innovation Hub at RMIT University and defence industry experts to share experiences, ideas and best practices on how this “buzzword” technology may be best applied to achieve real transformation in defence supply chain and sustainment.

An extended reality view of the five technology trends that are upping the game and allowing organisations to tap into the powerful potential of intelligent enterprises, creating new opportunities and helping to change the world as we know it.

This demo shows how blockchain has moved from a concept to practical, deployed solutions. We will use supply chain part traceability and configuration management use cases to demonstrate blockchain’s game-changing capabilities in aerospace and defence.

The connected soldier demo uses field-tested mobile, sensor, asset-tracking, analytics and wearable technologies to help execute the daily work activities of an industrial or field worker more effectively. By enabling a connected workforce that can use smart devices, and IoT-enabled assets, whole new levels of operational performance and safety can be achieved.
