Accenture & Oracle Take West Midlands Police on a Journey to Cloud

West Midlands Police’s Digital transformation project achieves a significant cloud milestone with Accenture and Oracle successfully deploying a suite of Oracle Cloud applications.

BIRMINGHAM, England; Jan. 18, 2018 – Accenture (NYSE: ACN) and Oracle (NYSE: ORCL) today announced that they have teamed with West Midlands Police (WMP) to successfully deploy a suite of Oracle Cloud applications designed to increase efficiencies and processes across the force. The project is one of the first implementations of cloud technology by a public safety agency in the U.K.

The SaaS applications deployed for the West Midlands Police, across Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Human Capital Management (HCM) and Customer Experience (CX) solutions, have enabled the force to modernize processes across its HR, finance, procurement and shared services departments, and provided an internal self-service portal allowing officers and employees to quickly access critical information and back-office services. The introduction of a cloud-hosted supplier portal also enhanced agile interaction between the force and its suppliers.

“The deployment of this cloud technology is the latest-step on our technology transformation journey as envisaged under our ‘WMP 2020’ change program,” said Neil Chamberlain, Director of Commercial Services at West Midland Police. “This project represents a significant investment by the force as part of our transformation program and demonstrates our commitment to investing in digital technologies to enable new and more efficient ways to manage operations, share information and deliver police services to the public.”

Accenture has worked alongside WMP since 2014 when selected as transformation partner to help create and deliver the WMP 2020 change program; an ambitious five-year transformation project to create a modern, technology-enabled and more efficient force. The team leveraged the Accenture Cloud Suite for Oracle, including an industry-specific solution developed by the Accenture Oracle Business Group to provide a faster delivery with more quality assurance.
