Accenture to acquire France’s Cirruseo
Global consultancy and outsourcing giant Accenture has announced plans to acquire French Google Cloud services provider Cirruseo for a still undisclosed amount. If the deal pushes through, Accenture will be able to enhance its Google Cloud expertise in the French market and further expand its offerings across Europe. Cirruseo, launched in 2011, has nearly 100 highly skilled Google Cloud professionals and is a Google Cloud Premier Partner. It has helped more than 600 clients. The transaction still requires customary closing conditions. The addition of Cirruseo would be a significant step forward in Accenture’s growth strategy in France, according to Olivier Girard, Accenture’s Geographic Unit managing director for France and Benelux. Cirruseo co-founder and CEO Herve Romain said the combination of Accenture and his company will allow both firms to bring highly differentiated end-to-end services to the market.
