Unlocking back office value for UK public sector

Migrate to the cloud with the least risk and greatest certainty of outcome


Accenture Enterprise Services for Government (AESG) supports UK Government departments in transforming their back office capabilities to become more digital, more efficient and deliver better services for citizens and employees.

The priority for UK government back office functions? Shift the focus from transaction processing and compliance to innovation, added value and improved service delivery. The barriers? Legacy systems, data complexity, limited budgets and scarce talent.

With Accenture as their change and delivery partner, UK government departments can embark on their journey to Finance and HR cloud operations with the least risk and greatest certainty of outcome, backed by world-beating cloud capabilities, mature methodologies and proven pre-built assets.

A digital platform that enables the back office to drive change across the organisation.


Government departments know that they must become more cost-effective and efficient. The back office should become an enabler of services that transform the citizen and employee experience, even with ever-increasing expectations in the digital world. Cloud is the answer. The question is how to move there as quickly and safely as possible.

Accenture’s proven expertise, leading governance and world class software-as-a-service capabilities give government departments the flexibility to pursue the implementation option that suits them best, at the speed they want.

While new technology is critical for achieving priority business outcomes, on its own it won’t get the job done. That’s why Accenture are a true change partner to government departments.

We work alongside you to understand and implement wider organisational transformation – unlocking the value of data to drive better decision-making and supporting the workforce of the future.

New technologies such as AI, automation and analytics are changing the art of the possible and generating whole new levels of value and agility. But only for organisations that successfully integrate them into the fabric of their operations.

AESG enables our Government clients to transform their back office operations into centres of innovation by reducing the time and effort for transaction processing and compliance, so that employees can focus on solving more complex problems and delivering mission-critical support.
