October 15, 2010 – Global management and technology services company Accenture will deploy its digital diagnostics engine to the cloud as it strives to limit client implementation problems and increase user speed.

The multi-billion-dollar company plans to place the Accenture Digital Diagnostics Engine (ADDE), which scans websites to identify performance problems and structural deficiencies, on the Microsoft Windows Azure platform, according to a news release.

By grouping data gathered from ADDE with consulting services from its Accenture Interactive division, the company stated it can more quickly apply solutions to client Web environments before critical business or security problems crop up.

Putting its diagnostics engine in the cloud will better address problems such as poor site indexing and analytics, and risky accessibility, and is expected to improve customer experience and traffic volume, the company stated.

Dr. Stephen Kirkby, Accenture Interactive managing director of research and platform development, said in a news release that the move will give his company an agile, intelligence digital operation.

“As the digital ecosystem becomes increasingly complex, organizations realize that point solutions are not the answer to website governance,” Kirkby said.

Accenture has more than 200,000 employees and clients in 120 countries.
