Accenture doubles down on disruption with Inspirage deal

Accenture has agreed to acquire Inspirage, an integrated supply chain specialist firm focused on Oracle technology, to help clients reinvent their supply chain networks.

The acquisition will enhance Accenture’s Oracle Cloud capabilities, helping it accelerate innovation for clients through emerging technologies, such as touchless supply chain and digital twins.

Headquartered in Bellevue, WA, Inspirage’s 710 employees will join the Accenture Oracle Business Group, further bolstering its Oracle supply chain skills and expanding its capabilities to help product-centric clients create interconnected, intelligent, and innovative supply chain networks.

Inspirage helps to break down silos across innovation and product life cycle management, supply chain, logistics, enterprise finance, and analytics to achieve operational excellence. The company serves clients in high-growth micro verticals within the high tech, life sciences, manufacturing, consumer goods, retail, and oil and gas industries.

Samia Tarraf, North American Oracle Business Group lead at Accenture, said: “Our goal is to drive value for our clients, empowering them to evolve their businesses by embracing the cloud continuum and digital technologies. We look forward to joining forces with Inspirage, a highly valued Oracle partner with top talent and an impressive track record. Together, we will help unleash the power of Oracle Cloud to drive impactful results.”

Srini Subramanian, CEO and co-founder of Inspirage, said: “For 15 years, we have been highly focused on customer success and innovating to stay ahead of client and industry challenges. Our people take immense satisfaction in solving the most difficult supply chain problems and making a difference for our clients and Oracle partners. Together with Accenture, we can deliver these highly specialized capabilities at scale globally, while creating new growth opportunities for our people.”

The deal follows Accenture’s recent acquisition of supply chain consultancy MacGregor Partners, showing growing investment from the Dublin-headquartered giant in disruption management.
