Running our business in the hybrid cloud means Accenture can be fast, efficient and cost-effective

Call for change

Cloud security


Cloud value and optimization

When tech meets human ingenuity

Cloud first

All new applications and services architected, designed, built and optimized for hosting in the cloud.

Production day zero secure

Protect the brand and intellectual property. Policy-driven—zero vulnerabilities at production.

Always on

Heavily fortified. Transparent to employees. Consistently available and predictable.

Multi cloud

Cloud footprint is balanced over time, and includes three cloud providers: Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud.


Portability is enforced as migration across vendors allows for the benefit of provider-specific features.

Demand optimization

Ability to scale usage up or down based on demand influx and variability.

Simplification and self-service

Simplification and self-service capability development are critical to cloud operations.

Intelligent automation

Shift to API-driven architectures, leveraging AI to "self-heal" components that fail.

Run as a utility

Consumed as a service. Software and code-driven. Dynamic and seamless change.

Cloud strategy is more than technology

Value strategy

Develop the business case to determine how to migrate to the cloud and optimize to deliver greater value to the business.

Application strategy

Examine readiness of existing applications and their target platform. Create the strategy to achieve the transition where there is value.

DevOps strategy

Identify the impact on tools, processes and interaction between development and operations teams as a result of the shift to cloud adoption.

Operating model strategy

Define a to-be operating model for an IT organization to function smoothly after transitioning to cloud-enabled suite.

Security strategy

Employ leading practices to ensure secure usage of resources from cloud and adherence to governance, risk and compliance requirements.

Hybrid strategy

Architect infrastructure so that it intelligently and seamlessly utilizes public and private cloud based on business requirements and integrates with legacy.

Cloud service strategy

Define how services will be operationally consumed and integrated into the support pipelines. Build application design principles with public cloud services.

Cloud networking

Combine native internet support for cloud, internet only to minimize the corporate backbone and zero trust boundaryless networks.
