Accenture has acquired cloud and digital transformation consultancy Infinity Works.
The professional services giant, based in the US and Ireland, said the acquisition strengthens its cloud delivery and engineering capabilities in the UK. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
With experience across multiple sectors from retail to financial services and some of the largest digital-led projects in national government, Infinity Works helps some of the country’s most recognised brands digitally transform.
It provides a range of services including cloud, data, design and research, cloud and engineering specialisation.
Paul Henshaw, co-founder at Infinity Works, said: “Ever since Infinity Works was founded, we have used cloud-first approaches to help our customers migrate to the cloud and enable them to digitally transform at scale and speed.
“We are proud of our proven experience of delivering across multiple sectors using a combination mobile and full-stack engineering.”
Headquartered in Leeds, Infinity Works has offices across the UK including Manchester, Edinburgh and London.
Founded in 2014, it employs approximately 440 highly skilled people including experienced software engineers, data engineers, cloud architects, and cloud certified specialists.
It has deep relationships with key ecosystem players, including AWS, and is recognised as an Advanced Consulting Partner in the AWS Partner Network.
Infinity Works is also an award-winning Elite Services Partner with Snowflake, the data cloud platform — the first partner in the UK & Ireland to be awarded this status.
“Acquiring Infinity Works is a significant step in advancing our Accenture Cloud First strategy and capabilities in the UK, and in achieving our purpose to deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity,” said Karthik Narain, global lead of Accenture Cloud First.
“The Infinity Works team brings deep cof our unique working culture, values, and technical expertise. Accenture’s resources and capabilities will enable us to better support our customers’ digital projects while providing them with the same exceptional levels of service they’ve come to expect.”
Earlier this week, Accenture announced the acquisition of Edenhouse, a UK-based independent SAP partner.
