New ways to apply infrastructure data for better business outcomes

  2. 2. Copyright © 2022 Accenture. All rights reserved Reinventing IT infrastructure data According to the 2022 Accenture Technology Vision, 95% of global executives believe that future digital platforms need to offer unified experiences, enabling interoperability of data across different platforms and spaces. This majority view is confirmation of the importance of harnessing data and a further reminder of how data has become integral to our personal and professional lives. We are all learning to think about data in new ways—especially when it comes to handling increasingly high volumes. Our organization had already shifted toward the cloud with most of our applications, but our legacy infrastructure data architecture had yet to follow suit. As we looked at our data insights strategy for our business, we took a similar point of view around our infrastructure services. We wanted to revolutionize the way we managed and analyzed IT infrastructure data— and, in doing so, we needed to place the accent on prevention rather than problem solving. Our aim was to lower costs, decrease our carbon footprint, scale at speed and automate compliant and repeatable infrastructure deployments with greater consistency and control. Above all, we wanted the new platform to offer business insights that enabled better decision making and improved the user experiences of our people. Call for change
  3. 3. Copyright © 2022 Accenture. All rights reserved Introducing a modern data platform When tech meets human ingenuity To develop a modern data platform for our IT infrastructure data, we chose to team with Microsoft, a long-term collaborator and recognized leader in data management and business intelligence. We were looking for a self-maintained system (where secure patching and maintenance is managed by Microsoft) that could help us to establish a cloud-native architecture. We needed a scalable central repository of IT infrastructure data from multiple sources that delivered actionable insights immediately for better overall user experiences. Our global IT team began the project by designing, implementing and migrating existing legacy applications prior to deploying Microsoft Azure Cloud Data Services. A smooth transition meant minimal impact and no downtime for global consumers using those analytics applications.

Using MicrosoftAzure means data doesn’t need to move between multiple channels and vendors, helping us lower transport distance and produce less carbon—meaning we only consume the energy we need and no more. The new cloud-based platform also introduces a “pay as we go” model based on consumption demand or storage needs. Without fixed costs, we can be more efficient, and can lower administrative costs with ticketless operations. Accenture people are already familiar with Microsoft products—for instance, we are the largest enterprise user of Microsoft Teams. This understanding of the Microsoft family of solutions means less of a learning curve to get people up and running with Microsoft Azure and makes it simpler for them to start using the platform.And with its easy- to-use self-service onboarding hub— the Microsoft Power Platform—data is more democratized and adoption is increased further. Both Accenture and Microsoft are large organizations with a global footprint, sharing similar demands around scale, global regulations and compliance. It is these kinds of synergies which foster a keen understanding of our desired business outcomes and how to achieve them. How Microsoft Azure changes our business Copyright © 2022 Accenture.

  5. 5. Copyright © 2022 Accenture. All rights reserved Improving analytics insights A valuable difference Today, all the infrastructure data from our legacy system has been migrated to Microsoft Azure, giving us a solid platform and reference architecture. Microsoft Azure’s central repository enables us to access high-quality data that is catalogued for easy discovery and accelerates time to insights. Now, we can easily move any other new infrastructure data into this platform, making our infrastructure environment less reactive and more insights driven. We migrated 15 infrastructure apps, one of which is a homegrown application called Protect My Tech (PMT), which auto-remediates security compliance issues and is present on more than 680,000 workstations across our organization. Cloud services bring us higher speed, elasticity and innovation. Our policy around development, security and operations (DevSecOps) means we have zero production vulnerabilities, protecting our brand and intellectual property. And data stays close to where it is generated, with lower emissions in the public cloud than our legacy on-premise data centers.
  6. 6. Copyright © 2022 Accenture. All rights reserved A valuable difference What’s more, our cloud investments in artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) can enhance our ability to explore the data and capacities to identify patterns, trends and business opportunities that were previously out of reach. Earlier Accenture research has found that 72% of C-suite executives focused on advanced analytics said a core data foundation is an important success factor for scaling AI. It’s also easier to use built-in cloud capabilities to protect business critical workloads against regional and data center outages, keeping the lights on and maintaining resilience. To get started on improving your analytics insights, here are some helpful steps you can take: • Prioritize change: Secure appropriate funding and leadership support. Obtain buy-in from teams, ease pain-points and be prepared for hiccups by instituting a strong change management plan before project inception. • Assess and plan: Invest time in a thorough existing architecture assessment and continue reviews throughout the project to ensure the design can perform and scale, is driven by automated code and secure from the start. Take account of data quality and validation from the get-go. • Maintain flexibility: Allow teams to ebb and flow as the project continues. Invest in data operations to accelerate the design, development and deployment of new components into the data architecture so teams can rapidly implement and frequently update solutions based on feedback. • Address dependencies: Ensure smooth handovers and encourage trust between teams by developing an appropriate RACI matrix—Responsible, Accountable, Consulted, Informed—and having clear and defined dependencies.

We’ll also be looking to use data and cloud to support our organization’s target of net- zero carbon emissions by 2025. Finally, we’ll work toward multi-cloud data federation, where we can empower users with a unified interface that eliminates multi-cloud vendor complexities and provides a consistent user experience. Insights like these are helping us further innovate how to best serve our global organization. In less than 12 months, we have:
