Accenture acquires Intrepid

Consultancy and IT outsourcing giant Accenture has acquired mobile application development firm Intrepid for an undisclosed amount. The acquisition will allow Accenture to expand its capabilities to help organisations create mobile experiences for customers at speed and at scale. Intrepid has a team of 150 people who are now part of Accenture Digital. This expands Accenture’s capabilities in design, native app development, connected device engineering, and web development in North America. The acquisition is part of Accenture’s planned USD1bn acquisitions spree. In June, Accenture acquired SolutionsIQ and Saleforce partner Phase One.
