Accenture has completed the acquisition of 6point6, a Manchester-headquartered technology consultancy specialising in cloud, data and cybersecurity. 

The tech giant said the acquisition enhances its strategy and architecture capabilities in the UK, with a particular emphasis on central government, defence and security, and financial services.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Founded in 2012, 6point6 has a proven track record of delivering large-scale projects for the UK government and has a staff of approximately 400, with offices in London and Manchester.

6point6’s work includes the largest cloud migration in Europe, with the shift of an entire UK government department to a single cloud-based digital infrastructure.
