Accenture and VMware announced an expansion of their existing relationship with a technology agreement at VMWorld yesterday. The expanded relationship is designed to help clients accelerate adoption of cloud computing technologies by providing guidance on how to optimize IT processes within the enterprise and educate clients on new best practices.
The three solutions are Transforming Operations for Virtualization, designed to help organizations overcome challenges encountered when virtualizing data centers; Application Enablement, which allows organizations to optimize the performance of aging and high-cost application portfolios; and Cloud Strategy Enablement, which helps organizations understand how cloud computing will impact them by, among other things, quantifying the cloud strategy and developing a realistic roadmap to achieve it.
“We’re delighted to team with VMware in developing these solutions. The big winners will be our clients, as these new offerings provide the dual benefits of increasing IT efficiencies while also providing an opportunity for reducing IT operating costs,” said Rockwell Bonecutter, head of global alliance channels, Accenture. “What’s more, businesses often struggle to become more agile and responsive to the needs of the marketplace. These new solutions will help achieve those goals.”
Accenture and VMware have more than seven years of experience working together delivering project methodologies and results.
