Oracle and Accenture are teaming up to launch a new business group with the mutual goal of getting more businesses to accept and move to the cloud.

Simply named as the Accenture Oracle Business Group, the two corporations are taking an industry-specific approach with an initial focus on public, financial and hospitality services verticals.

The Accenture Oracle Business Group is essentially positioning itself as a one-stop shop for enterprises that have only dabbled with cloud adoption or resisted altogether.

Leaning on Accenture's base of thousands of consulting and outsourcing experts worldwide along with Oracle's burgeoning cloud business, the Group is promising tailored deployment and management plans optimized to each customer's needs and pre-existing systems.

Thus, beyond simply alleviating worries about cloud adoption, the Group also promises training and testing for just how ready an given business is for cloud deployment and data migration.

The Oracle Cloud will serve as the foundation -- namely through its Software-as-a-Service and Platform-as-a-Service pillars -- hosting the Accenture Foundation Platform for Oracle for making these deployments and solutions available.

Both tech titans are also committing consulting services and expertise, with Oracle highlighting more than 52,000 of its own consultants globally and other 20,000 just for Java.
