CANBERRA, Australia – Accenture Australia in Canberra, Australia, has helped the Australian Department of Defence develop and deploy a cloud computing-based NATO supply codification system to enable the Australian military to receive up-to-date NATO codification data and develop supply chain processes and procedures.

Codification is crucial for defense organizations to identify, classify, and number items of supply and to manage defense logistics.

The system is the Australian Department of Defence’s first software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution, Accenture officials say. Technicians carried out compliance testing to ensure the technology can communicate with the defense agencies of other nations and the relevant NATO agencies.

As systems integrator on the yearlong project, Accenture established the system design, undertook the data migration activity from the existing system testing activities, and deployed the solution, officials say.
