We are excited to share that Atlassian and Accenture are expanding their partnership to help enterprises embrace agile ways of working. Today, over 240,000 companies worldwide use Atlassian’s software to empower teams to do their best work. With this partnership, Accenture’s global team of experts will help provide enterprise-wide agile consulting and implementation services to help customers realize faster time to value from their investments in Atlassian products, including Jira Align, Jira Software, and Jira Service Management.

Every organization is trying to modernize its way of working to become more agile and responsive to market conditions. But there are challenges stemming from siloed teams with no company-wide visibility, tool sprawl, legacy systems, and culture. Being larger and more distributed, enterprises face these challenges more acutely. So, we want to provide them with in-depth guidance on how to change their deeply rooted processes and turn them into meaningful change for better business agility.

By bringing together Atlassian’s leading collaboration products and Accenture’s global professional services capabilities, customers can embark on an enterprise-wide transformation effort by:

  • Shifting from project-oriented to product-centric development
  • Migrating from on-premise deployments to cloud-based services to reduce administrative overhead
  • Identifying value streams and implementing value stream management solutions
  • Selecting and prioritizing programs to achieve strategic goals
  • Implementing lean portfolio management to connect strategy to execution

As organizations continue to move to the cloud in droves and make substantial investments in technology to transform how they do business, new capabilities are needed for agile enterprise management. Through our strategic collaboration with Atlassian, we are bringing comprehensive enterprise agility solutions to our clients, which aren’t only critical for the technology organization, but for modernizing the way all teams will work in the future.

A great example of this is Belong – a division of Telstra, Australia’s largest telecommunications company. Belong turned to Atlassian and Accenture to help them implement Atlassian’s cloud-based agile work management software, Jira Software and Jira Align, at all levels and across all teams. By reshaping how the team tackles cross-functional collaboration, Belong became more productive, innovative, and agile.
