Every area of Accenture relies on data to make decisions and take action. Knowing the power of data combined with the ingenuity of our people, Accenture is moving toward a data-driven culture where every process and person is enabled with applied intelligence. Applied intelligence is the application of artificial intelligence (AI), analytics and automation to derive insights from Accenture’s vast amount of data to help empower our corporate functions, teams and leaders to make data-driven decisions.
To advance Accenture to this state, our global IT organization has been leading a multi-year applied intelligence program. We are building on the foundational initiatives of earlier years to transform the way we enable applied intelligence throughout Accenture. We are helping business teams within and across functions to build analytics to answer questions today. We are also working toward a future of putting applied intelligence in the hands of all Accenture employees, when, where and how they need it. To do that, we’re partnering with our business teams to enable them to develop their own analytics solutions, leaning on global IT as experts.
