World’s leading IT firm Accenture on Wednesday announced that it has entered into an agreement to acquire Nell’Armonia, a consulting and technology company specialized in enterprise performance management (EPM) solutions, headquartered in Paris, France. The accuisition will strengthen the IT major’s position in the enterprise performance management (EPM) market, leveraging cloud and data to help clients navigate digital transformation.
Nell’Armonia complements Accenture’s existing capabilities and will enhance its ability to address clients’ needs for analytics-based insights to support finance and end-to-end enterprise planning, Accenture said in a statement. Founded in 2005, Nell’Armonia has more than 135 highly skilled professionals with experience in Oracle EPM cloud solutions, as well as Anaplan, CCH Tagetik and OneStream solutions, serving clients across France and Israel with services that cover the entire EPM spectrum, from advisory to implementation and maintenance.
“Robust EPM capabilities that bring together data, technology and talent are critical for creating a more dynamic, agile and actionable performance management process,” said Olivier Girard, market unit lead, Accenture France and Benelux.
In another development Accenture Federal Services, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Accenture, said it has entered into an agreement to acquire Novetta, an advanced analytics company serving US federal organizations that are pushing the limits of what’s possible with machine learning, cyber, and cloud engineering.
“Novetta will bring expanded capabilities, broad client relationships, and unique assets that complement our work in the national security sector and add greater scale to our digital capabilities. “By joining forces, we will help clients in all government sectors become leaders in using sophisticated analytics and emerging technologies to solve problems in new ways and transform how they meet their missions.” Businesswire quoted Accenture Federal Services CEO, John Goodman as saying.
Novetta’s 1,300 employees — which include software developers, data scientists, and specialists in AI, machine learning, cyber, cloud, and information exploitation — will join Accenture Federal Services’ more than 10,500 employees.
