Accenture and VMware Alliance
Through our joint solutions, Accenture and VMware help organizations understand their current position in the adoption of virtualization and cloud. We help organizations simplify, rationalize and modernize their application portfolios in order to smooth the path to virtualization and cloud-based solutions. We also help identify—and execute against—opportunities to use virtualization and cloud computing to advance toward high performance and true business value.
Our joint solution areas include:
- Agile Data Center - Accenture accelerates the journey and benefits realization of cloud computing with the VMware Agile Data Center (V-ADC) solution. This industrialized and heterogeneous cloud solution can provide IT executives with a secure, extensible, and flexible cloud-computing platform for their enterprise IT needs. Realizing the benefits of cloud computing requires a holistic approach to platform architecture and design, service design model and end state operating model design. The V-ADC solution is based on VMware’s flexible, open and extensible cloud management platform that enables IT organizations to deliver flexible and on-demand infrastructure services with cloud automation and economics to support sustainable business agility, innovation and growth.
- Transforming Operations for Virtualization : The foundation for any adoption to the cloud, this solution addresses the barriers, triggers and capabilities needed to deliver virtualized data center infrastructure.
- Application Enablement : This solution has been designed to modernize and simplify the cost and complexity of new and existing applications. Accenture specialists, including 30,000 Spring developers, will use prepackaged architectural assets to help you rapidly modernize your application architecture and portfolio. This solution leverages open frameworks, a lightweight application architecture and in-memory data processing components that reduce cost and complexity while increasing time to value.
- SAP Private Cloud : Provide clients with a fixed price solution for virtualizing and running SAP in a private cloud, as opposed to clients' current non-virtualized legacy systems. By leveraging relationships with key partners, Accenture can transparently migrate clients' SAP environments to a managed, private cloud infrastructure - helping them lower costs, boost their systems' performance, while setting them up to take advantage of newer SAP technologies, such as analytics and mobility.
- Accenture Foundation Platform for Java™ - A rich, integrated collection of architecture services, standards, guidelines, frameworks and tools designed to address challenges common to software development, such as incorporating unproven implementation approaches and frameworks. The platform, made up of an integrated set of open source frameworks and tools, such as the Spring™ Framework, provides the right features for developing reliable, enterprise-ready custom applications.
