Japan Reconstruction Agency Selects Accenture for Strategy Consulting Services

Japan Reconstruction Agency has selected Accenture plc to provide strategy consulting services to guide the rollout of a new mobile payment system in Aizuwakamatsu. The initiative involves a trial implementation for consumers to make credit card payments through mobile devices, enabling retailers who do not have credit card capabilities to benefit from mobile commerce without startup costs. Accenture will oversee the use of the new system, measure its adoption, analyze sales trends and evaluate the impact of the technology on purchasing, consumption and retail revenues. Following the assessment, Accenture will provide recommendations to implement the system on a larger scale and suggest ways to reinvest a portion of the mobile fees back into the local economy. The technology for the trial will be provided and implemented by mobile payments company, Coiney Inc., in more than 100 Aizuwakamatsu City stores.

NET Selects Accenture to Extend its Now Video Service to Multiple Screens

NET selected Accenture to extend its NOW video service to multiple screens. The new NOW video-on-demand service will over time deliver its entire content library to a wide array of IP-enabled devices, integrating and extending the set-top box user experience (UX). Leveraging the Accenture Video Solution (AVS), one of the industry's most comprehensive, video software platforms, NET announced its new VOD streaming service last month. NET selected Accenture to design and build a video architecture able to augment its existing service capabilities and add new features as determined by NET's service roadmap and business requirements. Accenture supported NET providing its AVS foundation architecture and acting as the prime system integrator, deploying the solution in a complex framework where several products and legacy systems were integrated to create a new service delivery platform. The project included multiple requirements: Build an IP ABR (Adaptive Bitrate Streaming) Video Head-End, able to transcode and package content in real time, upon user request, reducing the investment needed to prepare and store multiple formats; Extend the existing VOD service proposition beyond television, delivering the same user experience to computers, tablets and smartphones, enabling users to fully access, navigate and control their content from multiple devices, at home or from anywhere; and Design the foundation of an open, cloud based video back-end, able to integrate all future devices and service capabilities in order to satisfy customer demand for flexible content consumption and new forms of content monetization. Using AVS, NET was able to build an open video architecture rapidly and with limited investment, its cloud-enabled software, and the adoption of non-proprietary interfaces. This innovative approach makes it possible for NET to take control of its service roadmap, reducing its time to market, integration efforts and dependence on legacy platforms and other vendors.
