Accenture Federal Services recently announced the creation of 300 new jobs at its Technology and Innovation Center in San Antonio, Texas. The majority of the new positions will be high value software engineering and business analyst positions as the firm creates a SAP HANA Center of Excellence to support federal agencies at its San Antonio centre.
US-based Accenture Federal Services (AFS), is a wholly owned subsidiary of Accenture. Since its founding in 2002, AFS has worked with 30 of the US’ largest federal government agencies, and today has more than 5800 dedicated US employees. In 2015, AFS opened a Technology and Innovation Centre in San Antonio, Texas, which today houses more than 1,100 of the subsidiary’s employees.
AFS recently announced that the new centre will gain an additional 300 experts, particularly in software engineering and related business services, over the coming month. The addition will largely be in the area of SAP HANA expertise as the firm creates the Accenture Federal SAP HANA Center of Excellence – a full-service SAP HANA innovation and delivery hub – at the San Antonio centre. A SAP HANA in-memory technology platform provides clients with more streamlined decision-making, through simplified processes and increased systems agility.
The expansion, according to the firm, will allow it to better service its federal agency clients as they seek to glean deeper insights from data, improve decision-making processes, and leverage advanced analytics, mobility and the cloud. The centre will itself be connected with a range of different Accenture expertise from its Accenture Technology Labs, Accenture Global Delivery Network, Centers of Excellence and Industry Solution Centers.
According to David Moskovitz, Accenture Federal Services Chief Executive, the expanded Technology and Innovation Center will accelerate the firm’s ability to help more federal clients implement digital-first as well as improving the way citizens live and work. Adding that: “Accenture is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace that enables our people to be successful - and will help attract San Antonio’s top talent. We believe that our diversity makes us stronger, smarter, more innovative and better able to help solve our customer’s most complex problems.”
“Accenture’s new Technology and Innovation Center in San Antonio creates quality jobs in software engineering and related business services and is a welcome addition to the local economy and community,” says Mayor Ivy Taylor. “San Antonio is a growing incubator for innovation, and we are proud they have chosen to expand and create new jobs here in our city.”
