Posted in Commentary with tags on February 5, 2021 by itnerd

To help Canadian organizations accelerate their digital transformations and rapidly become ‘cloud-first’ organizations, Accenture has appointed Jennifer Jackson as Cloud First Lead for Canada as part of the rollout of the recent global launch of Accenture Cloud First.

In this new role, Jackson will bring all of Accenture’s cloud services and capabilities together to drive growth, sales, and deeper ecosystem partnerships, as well as develop specialized skills in the market. 

Jackson has more than 20 years of experience at Accenture leading innovative and complex projects in many industries through all phases of software development and operations. Outside of her technology portfolio, Jackson is a passionate advocate for mental health and is the executive sponsor for Accenture’s Mental Health Employee Resource Group in Canada.

Fast-tracked by the pandemic, cloud has increasingly been recognized as the foundation for business resilience, structural cost reduction, and new experiences and products that address ongoing and ever-changing needs around health, society and the economy. 

Accenture Cloud First, which was announced in September alongside a $3 billion investment in new capabilities, solutions, partnerships and client engagements over three years, demonstrates Accenture’s commitment to deliver greater integrated value to clients when they need it most.
