‘The needs of our clients are driving strong momentum in our business, with an acceleration of continued strong double-digit growth across applied intelligence, cloud, Industry X, operations and security,’ said Accenture CEO Julie Sweet.


The engineering consulting and services firm, headquartered in Germany, was acquired in June and will help Accenture meet the demand to apply data and digital platforms to the design, engineering and manufacturing of products for leading international companies.

The acquisition will add more than 4,200 engineers and consultants across 17 countries to Accenture’s Industry X services, which will expand capabilities across multiple industries, including automotive, aerospace and defense, telecommunications, energy and utilities.

“We predicted that digital would ultimately be applied at scale to the core of a company’s business – the design, engineering and manufacturing of their products,” said Accenture CEO Julie Sweet in the earnings call on Thursday. “For nearly a decade Accenture has been building the unique capabilities and ecosystem partnerships to combine the power of digital with traditional engineering services.”
