Digital Strategy & Business Value Acceleration Internship


This is you

Thinker

You find new ways to solve complex challenges.

Efficient

Regardless the process, you find a way to make it more efficient.

Leader

You are a natural-born leader.

Inventive

You like to find new and better ways to do things.

One of the current challenges within large organizations is not the decision whether to move to Cloud, but when. Moving to the Cloud can be complex and introduces questions as: how to best execute at scale? And more important: understanding what strategic (business) value Cloud can bring to an organization beyond the promised savings on infrastructure costs.

Your job

During your (thesis)internship you will collect current available benchmark numbers, literature and studies on the various value levers (for instance productivity increase of development teams due to DevOps enablement, or market share growth due to dramatic decrease in time-to-market of new services). You will construct a financial model to apply these value levers on existing companies – including clear overview of required input (e.g. key KPIs of the organization). Moreover, you will help to implement the model in a practical tool and help to validate the model through multiple organizations across different industries.

Your team

The everchanging pace of market developments will only continue to accelerate in the future – and many organizations struggle to challenge new innovative competition within the market. How do different innovations influence the market, what are the results and how can companies adapt themselves to remain relevant in the future?

Accenture Technology Strategy & Advisory is the driving force in helping companies answer such questions. Advising the C-suite in their next steps – based on data analysis, experience, expertise and an innovative approach. Together with a diverse team of experts, you will challenge current industry obstacles and find the key solution for clients in their current markets: Surpassing the disruption and consolidating future success for organizations.

  • Master student from a (Technical) University
  • Affinity and a genuine interest in technology and strategy
  • Strong academic results and relevant extracurricular activities
  • Fluent in English and Dutch
  • Strong analytical and communication skills, eagerness to synthesize data into valuable insights
