Core Compete

With the acquisition of Core Compete, a Durham, North Carolina-based cloud analytics services firm that enables cloud-native solutions, delivering AI and machine learning-infused business outcomes, Accenture is expanding its talent in AI-powered supply chain, cloud and data science.

Powered by data science, data engineering and cloud engineering consultants, Accenture believed that Core Compete is well-positioned to meet a growing demand in the market. Accenture research found that two-thirds of chief experience officers are planning to increase spending on AI and more than 60 percent will invest more in cloud-based technologies.
“Over the past year we’ve seen cloud adoption increase, enabling organizations to unlock the enterprise value from data and AI strategy at speed,” said Sanjeev Vohra, global lead for Accenture Applied Intelligence in a statement. “Core Compete’s approach to cloud analytics transformation helps us further accelerate time to value for our clients, giving them the right tools, strategy and talent to reap the full benefits of being data-driven.”
