Accenture Launches Oracle Center

LONDON -- Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has opened an Innovation Centre at Oracles U.K. headquarters in Reading to accelerate the development, delivery and commercialization of innovative business solutions based on Oracle technology.

The Accenture Innovation Centre for Oracle will be a European hub for joint business development, producing and developing Oracle applications and technology initiatives and offerings to help creatively solve business issues facing joint customers. Accenture is the first systems integration and technology consulting company to open this type of facility on an Oracle campus in Europe. At the Centre, Oracle-based applications will be demonstrated to clients to show what the technology is capable of delivering.

The new Innovation Centre provides joint support for Accenture-Oracle client projects across Europe, helping to ensure they get the highest level of support from initial stages through to implementation. Staff will work closely with professionals at the other Accenture Innovation Centre for Oracle — at Oracle’s global headquarters in Redwood Shores, Calif., in the United States.

The Innovation Centres for Oracle are part of Accenture’s three-year, US$450 million investment in Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), announced in July 2006, and part of the company’s ongoing effort to help its corporate and public service clients realize value from business solutions based on Oracle technology.

This latest Innovation Centre will encourage closer collaboration between Accenture and Oracle executive leadership, technologists and product development personnel in Europe. It gives Accenture unique access to Oracle’s research and development organizations, provides Accenture with pre-release experience with new Oracle software, and helps Accenture accelerate training on Oracle technologies across its operations in Europe, while offering clients a single location to view the latest joint technology developments.
