Job Description

Cloud Advisor

Cloud First

Digital transformation requires a combination of capabilities & practices, product mindset, industry knowledge and - of course - the right technology platform. This is why Accenture is bringing together the people, skills and partnerships in Cloud First, a global team working with our clients on planning and accelerating their cloud journey.

We are investing USD 3 billion into Cloud First over the next three years to help clients across all industries rapidly become Cloud First businesses and realize greater value at speed and scale.

Your Team

Cloud First Design is the tip of that spear and plays a crucial role in realizing the value cloud brings for our clients. We help clients navigate the complexity of using one or more cloud platforms and understand which platform is right for their specific business needs.

You will work closely with peers from Strategy & Consulting, Talent & Organization and Interactive to truly transform our client’s services or products, ways of workings and customer engagement and will directly realize value by connecting cloud investments with key business outcomes. As a trusted Cloud Advisor, you will orchestrate the best Accenture has to offer.

We combine this with thought leadership and rich experience with major cloud infrastructure platforms like Alibaba, AWS, Azure, GCP, OCI and ServiceNow. We help our clients understand just what works where and what really does not in their business environment, so they realize planned value.

At Accenture, we are making sustainability a force for change through technology and human ingenuity. We have serious ambitions for our own operations and we work with our clients on accelerating their sustainability agenda. Cloud is an important enabler and our team helps select the right platforms, workloads and approach to deliver on sustainability through technology.

Examples of what we deliver for our clients as Cloud & Infra Advisory are Hybrid/Multi Cloud and Infrastructure Architecture Reviews, Designs and Governance and Enterprise Cloud Foundation Design and Build.

So, if you are passionate about helping businesses understand why they should embrace cloud and how they should realize its' benefits, join us as a trusted Cloud Advisor.
