Global consulting firm Accenture has acquired CS Technology to boost its cloud infrastructure engineering capabilities, including cloud planning, critical facilities design and data centre technologies.

The addition of CS Technology, for an undisclosed sum, will enhance Accenture’s portfolio of cloud services aimed at helping clients take full advantage of the benefits that cloud and distributed edge computing platforms offer, said Accenture.

Karthik Narain, global lead of Accenture Cloud First, said: “The acquisition expands the hybrid cloud infrastructure capabilities our clients need to become cloud-first enterprises and realise value faster.

“Companies must evolve their technology infrastructure in a compressed time frame, which requires moving quickly and with confidence. The addition of CS Technology better positions Accenture Cloud First to design and execute fit-for-purpose hybrid cloud strategies - that achieve measurable business outcomes.”

Established in 1992, and with headquarters in New York, CS Technology also has offices in London, Melbourne and Sydney. It serves Fortune 2000 clients across numerous sectors including financial services, retail and pharmaceutical, among others.

It also holds strategic ecosystem partnerships with OEMs, data centre providers and major cloud providers. The acquisition adds more than 100 professionals to Accenture with various accreditations in cloud, workplace, project management and engineering.

John Rosato, chief executive officer of CS Technology, said: “Joining the Accenture team will collectively elevate our position as trusted advisors to our largest clients. Our deep specialisation and experience will be magnified through this acquisition and will enable us to better deliver on our clients’ complex cloud, data centre, workplace and operating challenges.”
