With the clock ticking, Accenture designed and built a new end-to-end IT Enterprise landscape running 100% in the cloud. We assembled best-of-breed applications for core business processes—where possible using standard functionality to minimize customization.
These included applications for procurement, accounting, billing, marketing, sales, analytics and reporting. We also created an enterprise integration middleware for harmonized and flexible integration. A cloud-first system now run on AWS, it features a LAN-as-a-Service network and, naturally, SUSE runs its own leading SUSE Linux Enterprise Server operating system.
Accenture assembled a diverse team of 200 specialists from our businesses in 25 locations worldwide to meet project goals early. Sander Huyts, Chief Operating Officer (COO) at SUSE, said: “Accenture built a new house for the company. All we needed to do was move in, switch on the lights and continue doing what we do best.”
