Accenture agreed to buy one of the leading AWS cloud service companies on April 20, when it announced that it planned to take over Gekko.

The Levallois-Perret, France-based company has helped more than 80 clients “design, deploy and maintain a flexible, connected and secure cloud infrastructure” Accenture said.

Gekko is an AWS Advanced Partner, holds an AWS competency in Storage and is an AWS Authorized Training partner. Gekko is also part of the AWS Solution Provider and Well Architected Framework program.

“Aligned with our development strategy, the acquisition of Gekko would be another significant addition because it would give clients more support for public cloud options. Gekko would also be a major opportunity to accelerate our growth strategy in France,” Olivier Girard, Accenture’s Geographic Unit managing director for France and Benelux said in a statement. “Accenture’s advantage is our ability to keep pace with evolving customer expectations. Our clients call on Accenture to help them innovate and transform their business. Gekko would bring key cloud, AI and DevOps skills and would help us serve a greater and more diverse range of clients in France and the broader European market.”

Gekko’s 100 cloud professionals with more than 85 AWS certifications will be folded in to Accenture’s massive AWS consulting business, the Accenture AWS Business Group, which has more than 8,000 employees and 5,500 certifications worldwide.The Gekko component will focus on France, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.
