Sentia, the cloud consultancy with delivery services for hybrid and multi cloud services, including transformation and cloud migration, has sold its Dutch, Belgian, and Bulgarian arms to Accenture. The sales will see 300 of Sentia’s cloud specialists moving to Accenture's ‘Cloud First’ services group.
Roy Ikink, lead for Accenture Cloud First Netherlands, said, “The acquisition of Sentia’s business in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria enhances our capabilities in Europe, particularly around hybrid cloud and sovereign cloud. The Sentia team’s experience in this area will be invaluable in helping clients to address regional data privacy regulations.”
Accenture has also recently announced plans to acquire Inspirage, another company providing cloud services. Focusing on Oracle technology, Inspirage provides tools for supply chain transformation and its in2Cloud service combines a series of tools, including enterprise data management, implementation tools and test automation for Oracle’s ERP/SCM Cloud. Accenture said the acquisition will bolster its Oracle Cloud capabilities.
These acquisitions have come in a time of high energy, with Accenture completing three other acquisitions since the start of September, matching its monthly average for acquisitions in just over a week.
