Accenture assists Defence Department with new codification system

By

US-based, global professionals firm Accenture has worked with the Australian Department of Defence to develop and deploy a new cloud-based NATO supply codification system to allow the department to receive up-to-date NATO codification data and develop new supply chain processes and procedures.

The new system is the Department of Defence’s first software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, delivering codification which is crucial for defence organisations to accurately identify, classify and number items of supply and to manage defence logistics.

Matt Gollings, managing director for Accenture’s Defence business in Australia, says, working with multiple stakeholders across various geographies, the integrated project team — led by Defence, working closely with Accenture and AURA — introduced the codification capabilities and integrated the new technology with internal systems to ensure unique functional requirements.

NATO compliance testing was undertaken to ensure the technology was able to successfully communicate with the defence agencies of other nations and the relevant NATO agencies.

Gollings says, as systems integrator on the 12-month project, Accenture established the system design, undertook the data migration activity from the existing system testing activities, and deployed the new solution.

“Accenture is proud to have had the opportunity to work alongside Defence and AURA to deliver this project focused on achieving maximum effectiveness in logistics support. Critical to project success was the skilled team of industry specialists and a highly collaborative delivery approach between Defence and its multiple industry partners.”
