Accenture to offer end-to-end public cloud solution on Windows Azure

IT consulting firm Accenture has gained the authorization to sell a back-to-back public cloud solution on the Microsoft's Windows Azure platform, thanks to recent deal between the two companies.

Under the terms of the deal, Accenture and its subsidiary Avanade will assist customers in building, deploying and managing apps on the Azure platform.

The agreement will help Microsoft and Accenture to compete with CSC more effectively. CSC also offers consulting services as well as apps design for its own cloud data centers.
