Accenture is launching the Accenture Connected Analytics Experience, an immersive and collaborative analytics capability that makes data more accessible and engaging, helping insight-driven businesses make faster, more informed decisions.
The Experience is designed to make analytics easier to understand and expand the range of business users who can undertake an integrated analytics journey – from C-suite to functional managers to data scientists. By transforming their relationships with data, users with a variety of skillsets can collaborate on a specific challenge in an analytics environment; more easily examine and interpret the insights via data visualizations, and innovate through data-driven exploration and decision making. Through an immersive environment, users can find the hidden value in their data, either live or remotely on their preferred devices, and pursue outcomes in real-time.
The Accenture Connected Analytics Experience, delivered by Accenture Analytics, provides users with next-generation business intelligence powered by end-to-end analytics offerings including analytics strategy, a multidisciplinary data insights team, a data platform containing big data technologies and an analytics center of excellence that democratizes analytics.
Companies in the telecommunications, healthcare, consumer packaged goods, and financial services industries are already participating in the Accenture Connected Analytics Experience.
“Accenture thrives on applying our industry and analytics expertise and developing new solutions that can uncover new data-driven opportunities,” said Narendra Mulani, senior managing director, Accenture Analytics, part ofAccenture Digital. “With the Accenture Connected Analytics Experience, we can help take businesses and governments through every stage of their analytics journey, from issues to outcomes, mobilizing data, transforming data into insight, and providing decision-makers with insight in visually appealing formats at the pivotal time to drive discussion, decisions, and value. Through the new immersive environment, companies are empowered in a whole new way as it brings a new energy into analytics and business intelligence, making it more collaborative, engaging, and accessible to a broader group of users, both physically and virtually.”
The Accenture Connected Analytics Experience is a powerful example of a solution that was developed in conjunction with the Accenture Technology Labs, Accenture’s global R&D organization, which is focused on leveraging cutting edge technologies and applying them in new ways to address specific business challenges.
“Innovation doesn’t happen singularly, it requires collaboration among people, data, and technology,” said PaulDaugherty, chief technology officer, Accenture. “By bringing all of these enabling elements together through the Accenture Connected Analytics Experience -- from leading and emerging big data technologies and data visualization tools to Accenture’s large global multidisciplinary talent pool -- businesses can more confidently weave collaborative, data-driven decision-making into their corporate cultures and take actions that can lead to innovation, transformation and disruption. Through the new relationships being established with data, we’ll be able to develop exciting new ways of educating, governing, working, living and more.”
Accenture maintains relationships with an ecosystem of advanced analytics providers and emerging players in the analytics and big data space. Mezzanine from Oblong Industries, enables the immersive environment for the Accenture Connected Analytics Experience.
