The capability of Australian Industry is critical to Australia’s ability to defend the nation and its national interests. We believe that developing, sustaining, and scaling Australian and New Zealand enterprise is essential to ensuring Australia has assured access to and control over those capabilities when it needs them to most.
Australia cannot meet these challenges through the existing Defence-focussed industry alone – it requires the ability to apply and scale cross-industry capabilities to a Defence and National Security context. Accenture is implementing an AIC Strategy of systemic, repeatable, and scalable solutions to developing and maintaining capabilities that can be applied to Defence. We are achieving this by leveraging technology and expertise across industries ranging from defence to critical infrastructure, aerospace to financial services, medical to resources.
Accenture’s AIC Ecosystem
Accenture’s AIC Ecosystem brings together the best of industry to provide innovative and sustainable solutions to Defence Industry and associated government departments. As a Prime Integrator of AIC, Accenture has the cross-industry knowledge, relationships and systems integration expertise to integrate local enterprise into solution development and delivery. We develop our AIC Ecosystem partners, both through the skillsets and workforce growth associated with Defence project delivery, and facilitating opportunities to sustain those capabilities through broader opportunities outside of the national security space.
Thank you for you participation!
Our capability focusses are linked to Australia’s sovereign priorities. We are improving systems, finessing outcomes, and designing and delivering solutions – both to known problems, and innovations that prepare for an uncertain future.
Engineering across multiple domains (systems, software, automation, maritime and more) is critical to implementing new ideas and capabilities.
Supply chain resilience and optimisation
Resilient, secure and optimised supply chains are essential for business continuity and meeting the requirements of clients and their end users.
Cloud and data analytics
Data creation has accelerated. Leveraging secure cloud across enterprise enables distributed decision making to be quicker and more informed.
Robotics, automation and artificial intelligence
Improving efficiency and reducing manual inputs means critical human resources can be applied to other parts of the decision-making process.
Cyber security & electronic warfare
Cyber threat agents are increasingly prevalent. Defending against and responding to cyber attack is critical to sustained system integrity.
Penetration testing and security auditing
Organisational delineation of penetration testing and security audit from system design and development provides increased assurance.
Ideas need implementation. Architectures like SAP, Oracle, AWS, Adobe, ServiceNow, Workday and PeopleSoft play major parts in enterprise solutions.
Advanced manufacturing and sustainment
Complex systems required advanced knowledge, introducing new opportunities for smart manufacturing and sustainment in Australia’s modern economy.
Space and satellite communications
The Space Economy is transforming. Future prosperity and security will hinge the effectively utilisation of space and satellite technologies.
We are continuously expanding our AIC Ecosystem to bring in knowledge from different areas, with a diverse set of partners who contribute enhanced capability and new ideas.
Technology is an enabler. Increased opportunities for regional delivery facilitates sustainment and expansion of industry capability.
The high-level qualifications, training, experience, and skills of Veterans significantly enhance the know-how and know-why of Australian Industry.
Opportunities for Indigenous entrepreneurship expands the opportunities for Indigenous Australians to contribute to Australian Industry Capability.
