What is a 70-year-old business to do when it finally realizes it needs to move to cloud in order to modernize? Does it corral its information technology team and put it through cloud training and certification courses? Not if it’s the Educational Testing Service Inc., a nonprofit educational measurement organization. Instead, it just gets Accenture LLP to handle the hassles involved in moving to cloud. Accenture’s proposition to companies looking to leverage cloud for innovation is pretty simple. “If you’re a surgeon do surgery,” said Michael Liebow (pictured, right), global managing director at Accenture. Liebow and Chris Milkosky (pictured, left), enterprise architect at ETS, spoke with Rebecca Knight (@knightrm), host of theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s mobile livestreaming studio, during the AWS Executive Summit in Las Vegas. They discussed the ETS and Accenture partnership. (* Disclosure below.)
