Accenture, Hess Corp. in five-year cloud transition agreement

Accenture (ACN) has been chosen by Hess Corporation (HES) to help realize its As-a-Service vision that is part of the Hess IT transformation strategy. The new cloud-enabled operating model can ramp up or down IT infrastructure and digital technologies during volatile industry cycles. Under the terms of the five-year agreement, Accenture and Hess will work on planning, design and implementation of a technology solution that links field assets to a network of cloud-based offerings, delivered as-a-Service, with consumption-based pricing focused on reducing cost, increasing production, and simplifying technology. The project includes migrating Hess' applications and servers to the cloud. Accenture will support the migration and redevelopment of applications using its cloud transformation services with security applications, and leveraging features of leading public-cloud providers for scalability.
