Technology outsourcing company Accenture has assisted the Australian Department of Defense to develop and deploy a new cloud-based NATO supply codification system.
The Department of Defense’s first software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution will enable the Department to receive NATO codification data and develop supply chain processes and procedures.
The system integrator company in a statement said that codification is crucial for global defense organisations to accurately identify, classify and number items of supply and to manage defense logistics.
Defense, working with Accenture and AURA, undertook NATO compliance testing to ensure the technology was able to communicate with the defense agencies of other nations and the relevant NATO agencies.
“Critical to project success was the skilled team of industry specialists and a highly collaborative delivery approach between Defence and its multiple industry partners,” said Matt Gollings, managing director for Accenture’s Defence business [in Australia].
Accenture established the system design, undertook the data migration activity from the existing system testing activities, and deployed the new solution.
