Cloud EbizAccenture and Avanade have been selected to migrate the email service of England’s Health Department and Scotland’s National Health Service to a new cloud-based platform in a move to help social workers collaborate.

The companies will implement a new directory and Lync collaboration technology for instant messaging, voice over Internet protocol, audio and video communication, Accenture said Thursday.
