Leading global professional services company Accenture has helped the Australian Department of Defence develop and deploy a new cloud-based NATO supply codification system.

Leading global professional services company Accenture has helped the Australian Department of Defence develop and deploy a new cloud-based NATO supply codification system.

The new system, which is the Department of Defence’s first software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, will enable Defence to receive up-to-date NATO codification data, enhance logistics and develop new supply chain processes and procedures.

Codification is crucial for defence organisations to accurately identify, classify and number items of supply, and to manage defence logistics, Accenture said.

The integrated project team led by Defence, alongside Accenture and AURA – worked with multiple stakeholders across various geographies.

The project has introduced the codification capabilities and integrated the new technology with internal systems to ensure unique functional requirements. NATO compliance testing was undertaken to ensure the technology was able to successfully communicate with the defence agencies of other nations and relevant NATO agencies.

As systems integrator on the 12-month project, Accenture established the system design, undertook the data migration activity from the existing system testing activities and deployed the new solution.

Managing director for Accenture's defence business in Australia Matt Gollings said the project, which was delivered on time and on budget, was a success because of its skilled team.

“Accenture is proud to have had the opportunity to work alongside Defence and AURA to deliver this project focused on achieving maximum effectiveness in logistics support,” Golling said.

"Critical to project success was the skilled team of industry specialists and a highly collaborative delivery approach between Defence and its multiple industry partners.”
