Accenture Public Service PlatformThe promise of Service-Oriented Architecture delivered today


As an IT leader in public service, you understand
the need for process-centric IT that improves
performance by better aligning business with
technology. You want the agility to modify your
business processes without the cost of changing
the underlying technology. You recognize
the promise of service-oriented architecture
(SOA) to help you increase your organizations
effectiveness, lower total cost of ownership, and
reuse existing IT investments.
Yet, achieving this promise is not as easy as just
buying one of the many SOA middleware suites
on the market. When you open the box, you will
find there is some assembly required. Not only
that, the pieces may not all fit together in your
unique IT environment as promised.
A key challenge slowing the adoption of SOA
is that the technology is constantly evolving.
While there is a base set of standards to work
from, the tools, language capabilities, execution
platforms, and general operability of process-
centric IT remain something of a moving target.
Shortly after purchasing a product, you may
learn about an upcoming update that will affect
your implementation.
Accentures partnership with Red Hat helps
government organizations accelerate their
implementation of SOA and open source
technologiesfurther cutting IT costs, reducing
complexity, and providing a flexible foundation
for future needs.
