Microsoft Power Platform Solution Architect will be responsible for working with our Clients and internal teams to help shape their Journeys to Cloud on Microsoft Azure.

Companies and entire Industries need help to reinvent themselves during these challenging times and your job will be to help Companies transform themselves to emerge stronger above and beyond complex contexts such as the current one.  

With deep experience implementing and managing countless Cloud migrations, Accenture has learned that no two migrations are the same. At the same time, we have discovered a series of common factors that, taken as a whole, help form a template that is key to launching a successful Journey to Cloud. So, while no two journeys are identical—and indeed, no two organizations even begin from the same place – each company can expect common factors throughout the entire Cloud migration experience. The question isn’t if you should migrate, it’s when-and how. From manufacturing to marketing, companies are no longer asking if they should move to the Cloud. They are asking when they should move – and how to get there. Research shows that by 2018, 30% of all business applications will be migrated to the public Cloud. More telling, a colossal 91% of companies say they will be in public Cloud by 2019.

We are looking for candidates who have a broad set of technology skills across these areas and who can carefully assess Client business objectives, apply industry and technical expertise, demonstrate an ability to design the right solution and transform the way business operates with the Cloud as its foundation.


Key responsibilities may include:

  • Help organizations to define their own Journey to Cloud, providing industry-tailored insights and prioritizing planning so that Clients can maximize Cloud capabilities to reach the most urgent business targets

  • Assess Client business requirements and current technology to create an actionable plan that gets to Cloud quickly

  • Modernize applications, build new Cloud-based apps, and transform architectures and infrastructures, helping ease the transition to a new technology operating model and culture

  • Hep Clients to maximize the value from Cloud investments

  • Use Cloud management tools that provide cost controls, governance, and accountability

  • Advise and securely migrate Client applications to the Cloud using automated tools

  • Lead Journey to Cloud solutioning and scoping to generate estimates and approaches for proposals and SOWs for Clients

  • You will work closely with:

    • Client enterprise architects to gather architecture, infrastructure, and security requirements

    • Accenture Cloud developers to coach and grow junior resources on end to end architecture and landscape set-up

  • Create detailed target state technical, security, data and operational architecture and design blueprints incorporating modern digital technologies and Cloud services, demonstrating modernization value proposition

  • Co-lead and/or support detail technical architecture and infrastructure assessments and advisory work

  • Conduct full technical discovery, identifying pain points, business, and technical requirements, “as is” and “to be” scenarios

  • Compare solution alternatives across both technical and business parameters which support the definition of cost and service requirements

  • Apply methodology, reusable assets, and previous work experience to deliver consistently high-quality work

  • Deliver written or oral status reports regularly

  • Stay educated on new and emerging Cloud technologies/patterns/methodologies and market offerings that may be of interest to our Clients

  • Adapt to existing methods and procedures to create possible alternative solutions to moderately complex problems

  • Use considerable judgment to define solutions and seeks guidance on complex problems

  • Support answers to RFPs issued by Clients
