Accenture plc and Amazon Web Services (AWS) have announced the two companies will collaborate to help developers and enterprise customers accelerate the adoption of advanced generative AI technology launched this week at AWS re:Invent 2023. Generative AI shows incredible promise in transforming software development and application modernization. Building on its AI-focused strategic collaboration, the two companies will offer accelerators, hands-on expertise and best practices within Accenture?s Center for Advanced AI to help clients bring use cases from concept to production, using Amazon Q and other AWS AI services.

Accenture?s Center for Advanced AI is already helping joint customers harness AWS?s data and AI services, such as Amazon Bedrock, Amazon CodeWhisperer and now, Amazon Q. One of these customers is the European Commission?s Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries (DG MARE), which is responsible for managing the EU policy on fisheries and maritime affairs. In collaboration with Accenture, DG MARE is striving to modernize its systems, making them radically faster and more cost effective by using AWS AI services and its integrated, cloud-native platform. In this context, DG MARE was able to generate code for their business rule engine based on existing documentation.

Generating a new business rule using AI took about one minute and resulted in high-quality code, with greater than 90% accuracy when validating with developers. In the future, DG MARE aims to extend this use case to other code generation use cases. With a 15-year relationship, Accenture and AWS?through its Accenture AWS Business Group?brings together collective resources to help companies build a modern digital core essential to capitalize on new capabilities and meet the high computing demands of generative AI.

Accenture has more than 26,000 AWS certified specialists who hold over 33,000 AWS certifications. Accenture most recently obtained AWS competencies in resilience, advertising and marketing technology, and automotive on top of its 25 AWS competencies.
