Accenture Insights Platform for Government Receives FedRAMP Authorization
The U.S. federal government has awarded FedRAMP authorization to the Accenture Insights Platform for Government (AIP for Government), a cloud-based platform that provides federal agencies with pre-integrated data access, analytics, and visualization capabilities that can be used to create and deploy analytics-driven solutions.
AIP for Government is an industry-specific configuration of Accenture’s patented AIP platform. It provides government agencies with pre-built solution frameworks, accelerators, and stacks of commercial and open source technology resources.
According to Accenture, the platform’s pricing model eliminates the need for large up-front investments, enabling users to pay for what they use and scale up or down over time. AIP for Government is also supported by a U.S.-based AFS team, which provisions, manages and securely maintains each client’s unique IT environment.
The FedRAMP authorization allows Accenture’s federal clients to take advantage of advanced analytics as a fully supported service that can help them attain actionable insights to improve performance and outcomes, said David Moskovitz, Accenture Federal Services’ CEO.
Combined with Accenture’s deep technical and subject-matter expertise, AIP for Government enables agencies to develop and scale solutions that deliver impact at a lower total cost of ownership, he added.
FedRAMP, the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach for assessing, authorizing and continuously monitoring the security of cloud products and services. In 2016, the Accenture Federal Cloud ERP solution also earned this critical federal cloud security designation.
AIP for Government’s assessment was conducted as part of FedRAMP Connect. Based on the input of a panel of federal chief information and chief technology officers, this new program identifies the most promising cloud-based technologies with government-wide applicability for accelerated review and authorization. AIP for Government was granted a Provisional Authority to Operate (P-ATO) at the Moderate Level by the Joint Authorization Board (JAB).
