NEW YORK, UNITED STATES — Accenture has announced its acquisition of Ocelot Consulting, a cloud consultancy specializing in full-stack development, data engineering, data science, and cloud modernization strategies.
This strategic move expands Accenture’s Amazon Web Services (AWS) engineering skills in the Midwest, propelling cloud transformation efforts in North America.
Known for its proficiency in migrating enterprise applications and data, Ocelot Consulting enhances Accenture’s cloud capabilities.
“Cloud is the place where most technology innovation is happening, and this acquisition is all about expanding our cloud engineering skills to help clients modernize their enterprise and accelerate business growth and innovation,” said Andy Tay, global lead of Accenture Cloud First.
This acquisition combines Ocelot’s experience across industries like utilities, financial services, agriculture, and consumer goods with Accenture’s robust cloud engineering practice.
Ocelot Consulting’s team of around 100 technologists joins Accenture’s AWS Business Group, which has over 28,000 certified professionals and 27 AWS competencies.
Tyler Robert, co-founder and president of Ocelot Consulting, welcomed the opportunity to expand their transformative expertise by joining forces with Accenture.
“By joining Accenture, we can continue to grow our presence together regionally and nationwide,” Robert added.
The financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed. Accenture continues to strategically acquire companies to strengthen its position as a leader in professional services. It has been actively buying tech companies and has recently announced it is acquiring Solnet, a New Zealand-based IT services provider.
