Accenture and Pivotal Software Launch New Partnership to Speed Cloud Migration

Published On: December 4, 2017Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Accenture and Pivotal Software, Inc. have formed a new business group to help Fortune Global 500 companies and other large enterprises to migrate legacy applications to the cloud and accelerate cloud-native application development.

Operated and managed by Accenture in conjunction with Pivotal’s software development methodology, the Accenture Pivotal Business Group (APBG) will offer clients new capabilities for developing modern cloud-native products and services that leverage artificial intelligence and other innovative technologies in areas such as the Internet of Things and connected cars.

The partners intend to launch two APBG locations; one in Columbus, Ohio, and another in New York City. The joint facilities will be dedicated spaces where APBG will help large enterprises rapidly migrate their businesses onto the Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Pivotal’s cloud-native platform for products and services.

“By combining our cloud services expertise with Pivotal’s software development methodology and platform, the Accenture Pivotal Business Group will help clients accelerate the pace of new innovations and fast-track their digital transformation,” said Paul Daugherty, Accenture’s chief technology & innovation officer. “Together we will help clients adopt cloud-native technology, build software at scale, and use an iterative, high-speed model, enabling them to be more agile, disruptive and competitive.”

The group has already begun work with companies in the banking and insurance sectors.

While IT teams are tasked with building customer-facing products and services that can evolve with changing buyer preferences, many enterprises still face challenges operating their business on modern cloud technologies, thereby reducing speed-to-market. The APBG is expected to mitigate this problem by bringing together the skills, capabilities, and experience needed to help clients redesign and modernize their legacy IT applications and infrastructures.
