As Accenture advances along our digital transformation journey, empowering our digital workers is a priority. We recognize that to be more productive, we need to evolve enterprise IT. By putting the power in the hands of our people to customize digital technologies, our organization can embrace innovation and better manage change.
Customization at speed is in constant demand in the modern world. Yet, traditionally, it was either out of reach or only available through shadow IT—where solutions are developed outside of central IT governance.
Now, from virtual personal assistants to social channels, we can all enjoy customizing our digital footprints to suit our individual needs. In particular, customization is having a moment in application development. Agile teams of digital workers want to create new applications and automate processes to keep pace with ever-changing ways of working.
Using the Microsoft Power Platform, Accenture people are empowered to customize their own applications. Rather than relying on traditional application development through a centralized IT department, they can become citizen developers. The platform enables them to build apps and workflows fast, gain insights from data, regardless of where it lives, and enjoy enterprise-ready security and governance. And they can iterate and rapidly prototype to improve what they deliver and when.
Using one connected platform, Accenture people can find innovation anywhere and unlock value everywhere. So, whether our teams are looking to design and build complex business applications, analyze and draw data visualizations or automate a business process, they can personalize and extend IT to innovate and address many of these needs themselves.
Today, Accenture’s citizen developers are harnessing the power of the Microsoft Power Platform, building apps with little to no code. These applications support business processes and are built in a secure, resilient and scalable way. What is more, we are able to help our clients achieve the same to realize greater productivity, agility and better business outcomes.
