Accenture wins technology role for Western Sydney Airport build Featured


Management consulting and professional services firm Accenture has been appointed Master Technologist for the Western Sydney International Airport which is scheduled to open in 2026.

The role will see Accenture support Western Sydney Airport, which is responsible for building the airport, to design the technology architecture and infrastructure required for an international airport “capable of delivering an enhanced passenger journey now and into the future”.

Working with airport authorities, Accenture says it will consider how innovative technologies — such as the Internet of things (IoT), data management (analytics), cloud computing and security — can be deployed to enable efficient operations and facilitate the rapid and safe movement of people and goods throughout the airport.

Accenture says the goal is to create a world-leading airport that is responsive to the needs of travellers, users of airport facilities, employees and industry partners.

“This project is a great example of innovation in the planning and development of intelligent infrastructure,” said Bob Easton, Chairman, Accenture Australia and New Zealand.

“We look forward to working with Western Sydney Airport and will bring our deep industry experience in airports, digital technologies, cloud and customer experience to this project of national significance.”

Accenture has strong global experience working with infrastructure providers, airport operators and border management agencies.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
