Accenture Announces Opening of Innovation Centre for Cloud in Indonesia
Centre will help businesses accelerate their digital transformation with Accenture Cloud First services
JAKARTA; 26 August 2021 -- Accenture (NYSE: ACN) today announced the opening of the Accenture Innovation Centre for Cloud Indonesia (AICCI) to help organisations across all industries rapidly become cloud-first businesses in order to accelerate change and get to value faster across the human, technology and business dimensions of their enterprise. The AICCI underscores the firm’s commitment in advancing the growth and digital transformation of the country’s fast-growing startup ecosystem, enterprises, and government agencies.
With the physical facility planned in the next phase, the AICCI will harness the full potential of cloud to build latest creative and innovative solutions for an organisation’s cloud journey. Clients can rapidly evaluate the feasibility and security of cloud-first services, customised for their specific needs and accessible through a catalog of real and tested use cases while leveraging collaboration with an extensive ecosystem of technology partners to help lower costs, increase agility, and improve security and flexibility.
“In an era of compressed transformation, cloud is the single most powerful tool organisations have to master change,” said Accenture’s country managing director in Indonesia, Kher Tean Chen. “The centre brings together Accenture’s deep technical know-how and industry expertise to help companies deploy cloud to transform their operations. At a time when innovation is racing ahead, we are broadening our collaboration with leading cloud ecosystem partners to empower our clients with the business speed and agility they need to achieve cost efficiency, business resiliency, new experiences and operations needed to run successfully for decades to come. Today’s announcement is a testament of our support to the government’s roadmap for Industry 4.0, and our commitment to helping our clients lead and operate cloud-first businesses.”
Semuel Abrijani Pangerapan, B.Sc, director general for Applications and Informatics, representing Communications and Information Minister Johnny G. Plate, added, “Cloud plays an important role in advancing Indonesia’s burgeoning digital economy – it is the foundation for the digital transformation that is empowering changes in how our business operate and create value for their stakeholders. I applaud Accenture for investing in the country’s vision to build a more inclusive economy, and look forward to seeing the Accenture Innovation Centre for Cloud Indonesia bringing us closer to Indonesia 4.0.”
Due to the pandemic, cloud has evolved into an important strategic development driver for many businesses and governments in Southeast Asia. According to IDC, the cloud market in Southeast Asia is expected to grow at a CAGR of 18.9% between 2020 and 2024. Accenture’s cloud-first strategy for clients aims to catapult companies across the digital transformation finish line—a race that has compressed a decade of change to three years. The sudden rush is because companies realize they must be on the cloud at scale to withstand future shock.
“Accenture’s ambition is to outpace that growth by a minimum of two-fold,” commented Laurent Gatignol, Accenture Cloud First lead for ASIAM (Australia, Southeast Asia, India, Middle East and Africa). “In the region, we are investing in new capabilities, solutions, partnerships and client engagements that will spur innovation. We focus on three areas – investing in industry road maps, data models, and solutions to move entire industries to the cloud; investing in better automation and technology to move faster with more productivity; and investing in sustainability and talent. The Accenture Innovation Centre for Cloud Indonesia is an integral part of Accenture Cloud First, ensuring that we provide our clients with value, speed, and innovation in every part of their cloud journey.”
At the virtual facility, visitors can immerse themselves in a high-touch/high-tech experience that shows the possibilities of cloud-based solutions based on the client’s business needs. Clients can opt for full day strategy sessions with the Accenture Cloud First team to explore how cloud solutions can help move businesses forward, or targeted sessions that focus on one or two specific challenges that cloud computing can address.
