Chris Smith AccentureThe Accenture Cloud Platform has debuted on the market as the company aims to provide hybrid cloud integration and management services for public and private enterprises.

The tool is intended for agencies that have been mandated to consolidate their data centers and is part of larger company initiative to build up its cloud brokering and orchestration portfolio, Accenture said Tuesday.

Accenture will also invest $400 million in training and new technologies over the next three years, with an emphasis on collaboration to bring the right cloud solutions to clients.

Chris Smith, chief technology and innovation officer for Accenture Federal Services, said agencies are aiming to become more responsive and better prepared to meet changing customer expectations by implementing cloud computing in their information technology strategies.

Accenture designed the hybrid cloud integration tool to be compatible with Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Windows Azure and other infrastructure service vendors.

An expanded services pack that comes with the platform includes software systems testing, big data analytics products and data decommissioning.
