Jack Sepple, Accenture senior managing director of infrastructure services, said the partnership is aimed at helping clients meet information technology demands by building new technologies.
Dell and Accenture will jointly develop private and public cloud services for Microsoft applications and platforms using Dell’s infrastructure services, Active System Manager and software stack.
Both companies also intend to build configurations for business processes and applications by consolidating Dell’s hardware, software and services and Accenture’s application management systems for customers to fulfill security requirements.
Dell’s SecureWorks-based information security services will be integrated with Accenture and Avanade’s security consulting services in order to help clients protect IT assets and comply with regulations.
The joint technology offerings will be rolled out in North America in 2014 and worldwide in 2015.
