As the world becomes more digital, companies like Accenture are working to transform not only their clients' businesses but also their own in order to compete and accelerate. Business performance management is one area that was high on Accenture’s digital agenda—specifically for the teams managing Accenture’s client accounts and business units in reporting upward to business unit leadership. These teams needed to understand the most important aspects of client and portfolio performance more immediately, and needed data that is consistent and accessible online.
Our internal IT organization recognized there was an opportunity to use technologies and analytics to change the way Accenture people work by bringing together key financial and operational information in a new way. This information would enable client account teams to engage more effectively with client portfolio leadership teams to better analyze business activity and drive business.
