Accenture CAS is the leading integrated sales platform for the consumer goods industry. Accenture CAS leverages Amazon Web Services—including Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, Elastic Load Balancing, Amazon CloudWatch, and AWS Management Console—to quickly perform technology case studies for clients and demonstrate cloud readiness without having to invest in expensive infrastructure.
This session illustrates how AWS’ flexible and scalable technology and application services deliver value to Accenture CAS and Accenture CAS clients simultaneously. The session provides a deeper dive into a detailed case study and highlights the CAS approach, advantages, issues faced, and lessons learned.
Demonstrated Business Challenge and Value Added: In typical customer engagements Accenture CAS needs to prove that the data integration and replication technology for enterprise resource planning, backend systems, and mobile clients can handle the customer’s data volume, processing times, and scalability requirements. Scenarios and technical setups vary from client to client and even from use case to use case and require Accenture CAS to quickly adapt the underlying hardware infrastructure and setups. This is a time consuming and expensive task with on-premises installations. Accenture CAS harnesses the power and capabilities of the AWS cloud in order to meet this demand while understanding and optimizing costs, efforts, and timing.
Using the example of a high volume data integration and replication scenario supporting 20,000 mobile devices with peaks of 6500 devices per hour, topics covered include:
-Design, setup, and configuration of the respective AWS cloud environment
-Deployment and configuration of Accenture CAS software, testing and simulation tools to the AWS cloud
-Monitoring, maintenance, and management of the complete setup
-Execution, analysis, and results
