Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has completed its acquisition of Sentia’s businesses in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria. Headquartered in the Netherlands, the Sentia group provides cloud advisory and delivery services spanning hybrid and multi cloud strategy, cloud transformation and migration.
The acquisition, previously announced on August 2, adds more than 300 cloud specialists to Accenture Cloud First, bolstering Accenture’s capabilities to provide end-to-end cloud infrastructure services across public, private and sovereign clouds.
'Accenture Cloud First’s priority is to help clients with total enterprise reinvention by building their digital core, optimizing operations and accelerating growth,” said Karthik Narain, global lead for Accenture Cloud First. “Adding the Sentia team expands our migration and modernization capabilities, and further equips us to help companies optimize their workloads across the cloud continuum.”
Roy Ikink, lead for Accenture Cloud First Netherlands, added, “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.”
A leading cloud consulting company, Sentia’s main cloud control and optimization services include cloud managed services, cloud security services and cloud infrastructure migration. Sentia also offers unique digital experience monitoring services that analyze, track and predict enterprise applications and cloud services from an end user’s perspective.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Note: Sentia’s Danish business is not part of the acquisition and will continue as an independent business under the Sentia brand, supported by Waterland Private Equity as main shareholder.
