Published on

The As-a-Service platform enables companies to change the way they buy and receive services to support their business operations. With the “As-a-Service” approach, they don’t need to settle for just on-demand software or infrastructure—they can get everything. It’s an entirely new service economy, with vast potential for transformative outcomes. So why has one region in the world, Asia Pacific, been leading the charge to embrace the As-a-Service model?

  4. 4. Why are Europe and North America are less willing to experiment in As-a-Service Economy Concerned that they will not be able to deliver value with the same agility and cost effectiveness as APAC Western companies are: 2 x more likely to implement the As-a-Service sourcing approach than their Western peers More tied to existing legacy technology due to extensive previous investment Asia Pacific companies are: Are more willing to invest in the technology that is necessary to leverage the AaS Model Copyright © 2016 Accenture.

  5. 5. Asia Pacific buyers are more willing to take the steps needed to embrace AaS Flexibility of AaS allows volume based pricing with no minimum commitments Future protection enables As-a-Service offerings to keep buyers up to date Eco-system Leadership helps to ensure that all the moving pieces of the different partnerships are working together to provide the desired performance outcomes Innovation takes advantage of the Internet of Things (IoT) Networks, analytics capabilities and connected platforms to change the way the company supports their business Copyright © 2016 Accenture.

  6. 6. A global diversified mining company is migrating its core enterprise information systems and technology systems to a cloud-based, As-a-Service solution that incorporates consumption-based pricing. Reinforcing the AaS value: Case Study New information systems and technology delivery model incorporates: • Pay-for-use pricing: costs are fully flexible and services are scalable based on business demand. • Modernization of enterprise resource planning and information management platforms. • Consolidating and hosting applications in the cloud, managed via the Accenture Cloud Platform. A cloud-based, As-a-Service solution delivers: • Rio Tinto expects to directly benefit from significant cost savings through increased business agility and cost flexibility inherent in cloud services, and from continued lower infrastructure prices in line with cloud economic trends. • The solution is based on a platform for innovation, including a co-located innovation hub in Singapore, and a long-term commitment to partnering.

  7. 7. How to get there? Service buyers in all parts of the world need to think like entrepreneurs, viewing their business and processes through an As-a-Service lens. Engineer a mindset change by letting go of legacy thinking. Look at ways to migrate over time if the big move is too much Define the outcome you seek by looking at AaS as an enabler to focus on the “How?” Rethink your partnerships and build strategic partnerships that are more inherently focused on value and innovation Pursue talent that is progressive and entrepreneurial Copyright © 2016 Accenture.
