The Accenture (ACN) Cloud Platform is being expanded to support a variety of IaaS offerings, including Amazon (AMZN) Web Services, Microsoft (MSFT) Windows Azure, Verizon (VZ) Terremark and NTT Communications. Used to provide cloud management services for public and private infrastructure offerings, Accenture Cloud Platform has the chance to gain a greater following and have more impact in the cloud space with the addition of new cloud platform providers, many of which are among the leaders in the space.
With this new support, Accenture Cloud Platform will provide various services for each, including:
For Amazon Web Services, the platform will provide account enablement and assisted provisioning services to support customers deploying AWS environments.
It will provide account enablement for Microsoft Windows Azure to support the deployment of application development solutions on Azure.
With Vision Terremark, Accenture Cloud Platform will offering provisioning, administrative and support services for Terremark’s Enterprise Cloud, a virtual private cloud offering.
The platform supports NTT Communications’ private and public cloud enterprise clouds, and is now offering provisioning, administrative and support services, as well as professional architecture guidance to help clients design and deploy their apps on NTT clouds.
“An expanded provider portfolio increases our geographic footprint, helping us to better serve our clients around the world as they migrate to the cloud, and fits with our blueprint for enterprise-grade cloud services,” said Michael Liebow, managing director and global lead for Accenture Cloud Platform, in a prepared statement.
Signing on these cloud platform providers will increase Accenture’s global reach within its cloud practice, but it also means being able to provide a more flexible cloud architecture with open source components. According to Accenture, the end result will be a lowering of costs for its customers.
Accenture has big plans for the cloud, as it previously announced a $400 million investment in cloud technologies and services that will take it through to 2015.
