Accenture completes pair of acquisitions

Accenture, a developer of digital, cloud and security services, has completed a pair of acquisitions.

It has acquired the Sentia’s businesses in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria. Sentia, which is headquartered in the Netherlands, is a cloud advisory and delivery services platform, supporting hybrid and multi cloud strategy, cloud transformation and migration.

The deal adds around 300 cloud specialists Accenture Cloud First, bolstering Accenture’s capabilities to provide end-to-end cloud infrastructure services across public, private and sovereign clouds.

Accenture Cloud First global lead Karthik Narain said, “Accenture Cloud First’s priority is to help clients with total enterprise reinvention by building their digital core, optimising operations and accelerating growth.

“Adding the Sentia team expands our migration and modernisation capabilities, and further equips us to help companies optimise their workloads across the cloud continuum.”

The second acquisition Accenture completed was of carbon emissions and climate change strategy consultancy Carbon Intelligence.

Carbon Intelligence is a carbon and climate change strategy consultancy and is focused on helping global businesses understand their overall carbon footprints and how to reduce them. They can do this through science-based targets initiative strategies that lead to transformational rethinking of clients’ business models and value chains, it claims.

With the acquisition, Accenture will add 160 professionals to its team. This deal is Accenture’s fifth sustainability-focused acquisition in the last year. Its other acquisitions are Greenfish in France, Belgium and the Netherlands, akzente in Germany, Avieco in the UK and Zestgroup in the Netherlands.

Accenture global Sustainability Services lead and chief responsibility officer Peter Lacy said, “Carbon Intelligence expands our expertise in carbon strategy and delivery, building on the insights of our recently created global carbon intelligence network,”

“We continue deepening our global capabilities in sustainability – one of the forces that companies must harness to lead in the next decade – in areas that are crucial for the energy transition. Alongside this we are embedding 360-degree value for our stakeholders with our growing number of partners, venture investments and, most importantly, our clients.”

Accenture recently released a report that found that up to $170bn of insurance premiums could be at risk in the next five years due to poor claims experiences.
