Accenture and SAP have announced they will collaborate on ways for defense and security agencies to accelerate digital transformation.
The offering will be based on SAP S/4HANA, an enterprise resource planning suite. Both companies are working with select defense customers to develop the solution.
“This work will help clients derive the maximum benefit from their defense investments, delivering better outcomes faster in support of their mission,” said Ger Daly, who leads Accenture’s global defense and public safety business.
Their joint solution will have enhanced analytics capabilities and enable greater use of digital applications by military personnel, the companies said in a release.
“This solution gives defense agencies the capabilities to operate in challenging and fast-changing geo-political environments that require an intelligent platform with deployment agility, increased situational awareness and industry-specific capabilities,” said Antti Kolehmainen, managing director of Accenture’s Defense business.
The solution will also power Internet of Things applications, which will help defense agencies to adopt and connect new devices that will collect and exchange data.
