"I’m excited that Accenture and SAP are working together to create new intelligent solutions that support the operations of our defence clients in a rapidly changing digital world," said Ger Daly, leader of Accenture’s global defence and public safety business.

"This work will help clients derive the maximum benefit from their defence investments, delivering better outcomes faster in support of their mission."

The digital defence solution will contain enhanced analytics capabilities and enable greater use of digital applications by military personnel. It will also offer simulation and analytics applications to help defence agencies to plan and run their operations effectively and efficiently and respond quickly to changing operating environments.

"This solution gives defence agencies the capabilities to operate in challenging and fast-changing geo-political environments that require an intelligent platform with deployment agility, increased situational awareness and industry-specific capabilities," said Antti Kolehmainen, managing director of Accenture’s defence business.

The technology will also enhance leadership decision-making through data-driven insights while enabling greater data integration across the enterprise in areas such as personnel, military supply chain, equipment maintenance, financials and real estate.

Enhanced internet of things integration will be enabled to facilitate defence agencies to adopt and interconnect new devices that are capable of collecting and exchanging data. Flexible delivery options for both on-premise and cloud deployments will also be available to support rapid and cost-effective deployment to meet changing organisational needs.

Accenture and SAP are expanding their work together with select defence agencies to jointly develop the SAP S/4HANA Defence & Security solution to support the needs of defence industry clients.

"The next-generation defence solution will take advantage of the technology capabilities of SAP S/4HANA and Accenture’s deep defence industry knowledge to help defence agencies build and deploy solutions more easily and cost-effectively and at the same time enable the digital transformation in defence," said SAP’s global general manager for public service industries, Isabella Groegor-Cechowicz.
