Robust, flexible and scalable solutions to innovate core back office functions


Departments are looking for smarter, faster and cheaper enterprise solutions. Today, you can get a pre-configured as-a-Service solution designed to meet Australian government standards and regulations. Running your enterprise as-a-Service means it is perpetually current with solution upgrades occurring in specified time frames without additional investment. Smarter. Cheaper. Faster.

With a standard set of services, AESG can be supplemented by manageable customer specific customisations. Parts of the services can be personalised. This allows government organisations to adapt a standard AESG solution to meet a range of unique requirements. Smarter. Cheaper. Faster.

Unlike traditional enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions, AESG accelerates ERP deployment. It’s a transition-in process. Delivered as-a-Service, AESG is flexible, permitting users the option to scale usage—up or down—instantly and in real time without licensing limitations. Multiple agencies or functions can be accommodated simultaneously. The solution is enabled by cloud and locally hosted in Australian Government Data Centres. Tested globally in over 1,000 SAP implementations, AESG uses Accenture’s high-performance process framework, backed by our tremendous security and R&D investments. Smarter. Cheaper. Faster.
