Accenture Debuts Innovation Center for BEA

SAN JOSE, Calif., Nov. 29 -- Accenture and BEA Systems Inc. today announced the opening of the Accenture Innovation Center for BEA located at BEA headquarters in San Jose, Calif. At the center, clients can work with Accenture and BEA teams to create new solutions such as service-oriented architectures and dynamic business applications to enhance organizational performance and flexibility.

Were launching the center with BEA on the strength of our history of delivering quantifiable results for our shared clients, said Don Rippert, chief technology officer at Accenture. By formalizing the work weve done with BEA into tangible assets and by providing our clients with first-hand access to these assets, we can give them all the benefits of innovation and speed to market with reduced risk.

The Accenture Innovation Center for BEA, headed by Robert Calloway, lead of Accentures SOA practice in North America, will provide a collaborative environment for testing conceptual solutions and expanded uses of BEA technology. The center will offer clients access to:

  • Industry-based integration and business process management assets that helped companies like Pacific Gas and Electric Company leverage todays technology to achieve desired business process improvements such as new revenue opportunities, stronger data integrity and increased process visibility for all in the organization.
  • Accenture and BEA experts who focus on engineering each clients unique business processes, rather than changing business processes to conform with ERP system templates.
  • Integrated business process management (BPM) best practices to help reduce clients risk, cost and time investments.

Accenture and BEA have had great success developing game-changing solutions together largely because both of our organizations believe in focusing on our clients core business first and technology second, said David Gai, executive vice president of worldwide services at BEA Systems. This center provides a great opportunity for organizations to leverage Accentures and BEAs deep industry and technology expertise in order to maximize their IT investment with demonstrated business results.

Accenture and BEA have together developed 15 industry-focused prototypes, including the Accenture SOA Reference Architecture for the BEA Platform and the Accenture Service Delivery Platform Solution. The former simplifies and accelerates the process of designing applications based on service-oriented architecture, while the latter provides an integration platform for companies in the communications industry.
