Accenture Bets On Italy With Latest Acquisition
‘This acquisition boosts our ability and capacity to support Italian public sector innovation and help our government clients advance their transformation journeys,’ says Mauro Macchi, chairman and CEO of Accenture Italy.
Global IT solutions provider Accenture has acquired a pair of jointly-owned Italian technology consultancy agencies to further expand its digital transformation capabilities in Italy’s public sector market.
The acquisition aligns with Dublin, Ireland-based Accenture’s strategy in helping Italian public service organizations build out their digital core and deliver enhanced services.
Customer Management IT and SirfinPA are dual agencies that were founded in 2010 and have supported the Italian Ministry of Justice by implementing technology applications and digital infrastructure in the central criminal justice department. The agencies have about 300 employees.
Mauro Macchi, chairman and CEO of Accenture Italy, said in a statement that “this acquisition boosts our ability and capacity to support Italian public sector innovation and help our government clients advance their transformation journeys.”
CRN has reached out to Accenture for additional comment. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
In November, Accenture acquired Ammagamma, an Italy-based firm that works for clients across energy, insurance, banking, utilities and media industries, to spearhead AI offerings for the company.
This is Accenture’s fifth acquisition in December. Earlier this month, it acquired Germany-based management consultancy Vocatus, UK-based data consultancy Redkite, Singapore-based media and marketing technology company Jixie and Thailand-based creative and digital experience agency Rabbit’s Tale.
Earlier this week, Accenture CEO Julie Sweet told investors that Accenture remains a very acquisitive company, having closed 13 acquisitions during its most recent quarter for a total of $788 million in strategic areas across its geographic markets.
