Gearing up for growth using multi-speed IT
Organizations today consume IT at several speeds all at once. Innovation and digital disruption require quick response, legacy systems call for deliberate care and shifting operating models need a pace of change somewhere in between.
Two speeds are no longer enough. Multi-speed IT is achieved by bringing together a network of skills, instituting a dynamic operating model and installing flexible governance models. The challenge is great, but the reward for the public sector CIO is a pivotal role in their organization's strategic agenda.
Accenture’s groundbreaking work with state and local government agencies across California reflects our commitment to helping our clients achieve high performance. We work with agencies to bridge the gap between government, citizens and business for better outcomes.
Case in point: Consortium C-IV – Working with 39 California counties, Accenture helped integrate human services to streamline the management of multiple benefit programs for caseworkers and customers. The welfare departments reduced 205 processes to 58 and creating common procedures for the four counties. Then, based on these improvements, they developed an integrated, Web-based solution to manage all of their functions, with a single database to house information for all four welfare departments.
Accenture engages in a variety of corporate citizenship activities across California—a commitment that reflects our firm-wide belief in giving back to the communities where we work and live.
