Accenture is a long-time ally to New York State and City agencies. Thank you for letting us help deliver your vision for more coordinated, efficient, accessible and transparent government. From large transformation initiatives that revolutionize citizen service to programs that improve everyday processes, our work together is as diverse as the citizens of New York. I believe our combined passion continues to deliver great outcomes for citizens and agencies.
Re-engineering innovation for the digital age
Although the days of incremental tweaking aren’t entirely over, winning means creating break-through innovation. That calls for government structures that are nimble, open to new input from extended ecosystems to drive a higher percentage of breakthroughs. And working in tandem with citizens.
Yet most organizations are stuck in “small change” mode. Using outdated methods and expecting innovative results.

Public service CIOs are at the heart of the changing technology landscape. We work with them through our Technology Advisory Services/CIO Agenda practice to develop strategies to realize their goals and make smart investments.
We advise on top-of-mind issues such as balancing legacy investments with migration to digital and the cloud, adopting new IT, managing multi-speed delivery and operating models, evaluating vendors and platforms, and planning complex transformation programs.
Case in point: Accenture collaborated with the City of New York on its DataBridge project, which employs cutting edge analytical techniques to help the City increase public safety, deliver services more efficiently and protect its finances. In addition to building a best in class analytical platform, the Accenture team worked with the City to implement the tools, processes and organizational structure to achieve fast and sustainable results from the platform. The City can now use analytical insight to prioritize issues and better allocate resources, make decisions based on true need, identify fraudulent and high-cost activities, and identify patterns in data to prevent problems before they occur. Because the approach used to capture results is scalable and repeatable, the City is equipped to gain even greater value from analytics in the future.
