Nutanix and Accenture Join Forces to Help Global Companies with Digital Transformation and Application Modernization

Manoj Gupta is the VP of System Integrators at Nutanix and Robert Mowles is Accenture’s Global Storage Strategy Lead.

IT is expanding at a rapid pace as enterprises begin to modernize applications and transform their core business for the digital era. No longer can companies simply rely on past IT practices and infrastructures to accommodate the new wave of digital industrialization required to stay competitive. There have only been a handful of companies that have consistently and successfully helped organizations disrupt their industry and reinvent themselves. Accenture has led this list.

This is why Nutanix and Accenture are excited to announce we have expanded our alliance and reseller partnership to help global organizations and businesses accelerate their digital transformation efforts. Through this partnership, Nutanix and Accenture will partner globally to jointly go-to-market as well as co-invest in joint solutions for customers.

As Nutanix President, Sudheesh Nair has said, “Global customers recognize the need for better approaches to IT. Nutanix is committed to help these customers create the rich ecosystem necessary for digital transformation. By partnering with global systems integrators such as Accenture, customers receive a broader range of solutions and benefit from our innovative enterprise cloud technology.”

Successful IT is critical to continued business growth. This partnership allow both of us to deliver the IT infrastructure solutions that businesses need in order to adapt to unprecedented disruption. Together, Nutanix and Accenture can bring our customers new capabilities and validated solutions that deliver maximum flexibility and efficiency, paving the way to the future.

Partnering to Extend Global Reach

By delivering world-class products and validated solutions built on industry-leading services and best practices, Nutanix and Accenture are able to help companies evolve their IT practices. The simplicity and superior automation provided by Nutanix Enterprise Cloud solutions, combined with Accenture’s proven track record of helping businesses transform, provides a clear path forward for companies that want to streamline operations and enhance customer engagement.

Together, we help customers assess IT needs and develop a comprehensive roadmap to transform their operations, including migration, management and optimization. Nutanix and Accenture are dedicated to the success of this partnership and have allocated resources globally to support the Nutanix Enterprise Cloud vision and enable the delivery of Nutanix products across the globe.

The partnership is already bearing fruit. A well-known US national sports franchisee engaged with Accenture for its data center modernization project. Because this was part of a larger effort to leverage technology as a competitive advantage and highlight the team’s innovation, Accenture steered the IT organization to hyperconverged infrastructure and Nutanix. The installed Enterprise Cloud Platform based solution supports the organization’s production environment, including specialized analytical databases and player sensor data. Additional clusters will follow to support training camps and a DR facility.

Services to Transform Your Business

Accenture and Nutanix will provide a wide variety of customer solutions, including the following:

  • IT industrialization/digital transformation. Nutanix Enterprise Cloud facilitates transformation by supporting existing applications and cloud-native applications on an equal footing.
