Accenture to invest $400M in public sector cloud tech by 2015

Accenture is planning to invest $400 million between now and 2015 in cloud technologies for the government market.

The company recently launched its Accenture Cloud Program, which represents the next step in its cloud strategy and reaffirms its intent to provide cloud brokering and orchestration services, the company said.

Toward these efforts, Accenture has expanded its program to include public and virtual private cloud infrastructure, data decommissioning, software systems testing and big data analytics solutions in the cloud.

The Accenture Cloud Program supports a portfolio of infrastructure service providers including Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Windows Azure, Verizon Terremark and NTT Communications, the company said.

The expansion allows government agencies to choose a pre-packaged, standardized format, making implementation faster and costs lower.

Accenture’s program will provide management and control over cloud services that are being delivered to clients, whether it be by the company itself or from a third-party provider, it said.
