Cloud infrastructure—especially hybrid or multi-cloud environments—promises significant benefits but can also bring unique challenges. Proprietary technologies, dynamic workloads, and evolving security standards create significant complexities that risk business or mission continuity.
Accenture Federal Services combines deep technical expertise, proven operating models, and cutting-edge system automation to meet the challenge. We infuse intelligence into infrastructure to enable self-monitoring, self-healing, and self-securing cloud environments. Our FinOps services bring transparency and accountability to cloud environments operating across the enterprise.
Our SaaS-style cloud-managed services operate at FedRAMP High on IL4+ to provide true 24 x 7 management and monitoring of even the most sophisticated and secure federal workloads.

CloudTracker is our cloud-agnostic offering for single-pane visibility and oversight of enterprise cloud performance and activity. Federal agencies use CloudTracker as a core component of their cloud FinOps strategy, providing insight into resource utilization, cost tracking, migration status, compliance and more.
What sets CloudTracker apart is that it's built for the federal mission, providing oversight of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure environments, including C2S and ready for C2E.
CloudTracker empowers federal agencies to manage risk proactively, monitor compliance and utilization, enforce accountability and optimize and reduce costs.
Cloud Foundations Framework – multi-cloud scaled
While hybrid, multi-cloud and poly-cloud implementations can deliver significant value, they also add cost and complexity through duplication of tools, services and staffing.
Accenture Federal Services’ Cloud Foundation Framework is a collection of tools and accelerators for single-pane management of hybrid and multi-cloud environments. It provides end-to-end cloud management capabilities spanning business, cloud and security requirements. This framework builds off Microsoft Azure’s native controls but is easily extensible to AWS, Google Cloud Platform, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, on-prem & edge devices.
With Cloud Foundation Framework, agencies can optimize management and operating costs for existing multi-cloud implementations. It can also accelerate the deployment of new Azure tenants and scale out remote desktop services to the cloud. With its open architecture, Cloud Foundation Framework can help upgrade existing cloud security implementations to a zero-trust operating model.
Accenture Federal Services at theCUBE
Hear from Justin Shirk, Managing Director at Accenture Federal Services (AFS), and Paul Puckett, Director of Enterprise Cloud Management Agency at the U.S. Army, as they discuss how the collaboration between their organizations enabled the US Army to power data-driven decision making as it relates to cloud accounts and seamless cloud governance across providers and security fabrics.
They also discuss how using the innovative tool, CloudTracker, delivers a single-pane-of-glass providing total transparency to track real-time cloud costs and usage at enterprise scale and saves millions by avoiding inefficiencies and unnecessary or unknown costs.
Once viewed primarily as a network accelerator for field-based sensors, edge computing is emerging rapidly as an intelligent orchestrator of complex processes and applications operating beyond the traditional perimeter. Given the need to execute a highly distributed mission – whether patrolling the base perimeter, protecting our borders, or optimizing transportation networks and monitoring the environment – the U.S. federal government is poised to benefit from these evolving technologies.
Federal IT leaders should assess how their architectures and networks can enable and capitalize on edge computing. And program leaders should consider how data generated by Internet of Things (IoT) devices like cameras and sensors can be enriched in the field to enable smarter, more autonomous operations.
According to Accenture research, federal leaders have high expectations, with more than 9 in 10 saying that edge solutions are very or extremely important to meeting their agency's mission needs.
As part of Accenture Federal Services’ cloud computing practice, you’ll collaborate with the brightest minds in public, private, and edge cloud services. Together we’ll build cloud solutions for efficient and effective government.
