Accenture has acquired Edenhouse, a UK-based SAP partner, for an undisclosed sum.
The deal will scale Accenture’s capabilities in the UK to address increased demand for SAP’s cloud-based solutions. Founded in 2008 and an SAP platinum partner, Edenhouse specialises in the sale, implementation, support and hosting of SAP products and services to mid-sized businesses.
Edenhouse’s team of 220 professionals will join Accenture’s SAP business group in the UK to support the local business while benefitting from access to global resources and skills.
John Erik Ellingsen, Accenture intelligent platform services lead for the UK and Ireland, said: “Now that Edenhouse is part of Accenture, we’re in an even stronger position in the UK to help our clients harness change and accelerate their transformational journeys. The global pandemic has increased demand for SAP’s cloud-based solutions and the additional skills we now have access to will enable us to rapidly meet the needs of our clients, helping them to progress more quickly on their path to value and become more sustainable businesses for the future.”
Paul Solomon, Edenhouse CEO, added: “Together, Accenture and Edenhouse are a great fit. Being part of Accenture will provide amazing opportunities for our staff and our clients. We have similar shared values, including putting business outcomes at the heart of everything we do to deliver value for clients and leveraging our deep relationships with SAP. We’re excited to be able to bring the combination of our people, technology and industry excellence to take digital transformation to the next level for our clients.”
