Accenture with our new acquisition of Certus are the only vendors to have successfully implemented Oracle Cloud in UK Central Government. The unique requirements of UK Central Government are understood by our teams, giving us unrivalled insight into “what it takes” to successfully deliver again and again.
Based on these implementations we “wrote the book” on how to successfully implement Oracle Cloud in UK Central Government; engage.gov™ blueprint contains the methodology and associated accelerators and scripts underpinning the configuration of all UK Central Government programmes to date, with lessons learned from each of these engagements informing constant iterative updates to the engage.gov™ blueprint. The Government Client benefitted from substantial re-use from our work in prior clients, and other areas are in turn benefitting from this proven approach.
Together Accenture and Certus offer the strength in depth, unique insights which can only be gained from delivery in the UK Government market and the associated methods, tools and knowledge to de-risk delivery and enable a successful outcome.
