Accenture Federal Services is expanding its Technology and Innovation Center in San Antonio, Texas, adding 300 new jobs by the end of 2016. This expansion brings the total number of Accenture Federal Services employees in San Antonio to 1,400 by the end of the year.
The San Antonio center, which opened in 2015, will also house the Accenture Federal SAP HANA Center of Excellence – a full-service SAP HANA innovation and delivery hub for Accenture’s (NYSE:ACN) federal clients across the United States.

The platform combines advanced analytics capabilities with technology to improve performance in critical functions such as logistics, human capital management, finance and security. The center will also connect to and leverage expertise from Accenture Technology Labs, Accenture Global Delivery Network, Centers of Excellence and Industry Solution Centers.
“This expanded Technology and Innovation Center accelerates our ability to help more federal clients implement digital-first while helping improve the way citizens work and live,” said David Moskovitz, Accenture Federal Services chief executive.
By expanding the Technology and Innovation Center and establishing the SAP HANA Center of Excellence, Accenture expects to help equip its federal agency clients to address an array of challenges as they seek to glean deeper insights from data, improve decision-making processes, and leverage advanced analytics, mobility and the cloud.
“Accenture is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace that enables our people to be successful – and will help attract San Antonio’s top talent. We believe that our diversity makes us stronger, smarter, more innovative and better able to help solve our customer’s most complex problems,” added Moskovitz.
