Targeting the acceleration of Fortune 500 digital transformation, Accenture and Pivotal have formed a new business group for enhanced software development and startup innovation.

Under the banner of The Accenture Pivotal Business Group (APBG), the new entity is set to focus on cloud migration and the improvement of cloud-native application development. The Pivotal Cloud Foundry will be central to this process.

The APBG has been formed with the future in mind, geared toward leveraging cutting edge technologies including artificial intelligence, connected cars and home, and internet of things (IoT).
