Accenture has agreed to acquire Sentia to bolster infrastructure engineering capabilities across the cloud continuum.
Headquartered in the Netherlands, the Sentia group is a cloud consulting company that manages private and public cloud migrations and provides digital experience monitoring services. Sentia’s team of 310 cloud specialists in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria will join Accenture Cloud First.
Sentia currently provides cloud advisory and delivery services spanning hybrid and multi-cloud strategy, cloud transformation and migration, among others. The company’s main cloud control and optimization services include cloud managed services, cloud security services, and cloud infrastructure migration. Sentia also offers unique digital experience monitoring services that analyze, track and predict enterprise applications and cloud services from an end user’s perspective.
The acquisition expands Accenture’s Cloud First capabilities to provide end-to-end cloud infrastructure services across the cloud continuum of public, private and sovereign clouds.
Karthik Narain, global lead for Accenture Cloud First, said: “Total enterprise reinvention starts with a solid digital core. To activate this digital core, organizations need to build a scalable, fit-for-purpose cloud foundation that provides the strategic agility they need to ensure their resilience and further competitiveness. Adding Sentia’s specialists will enhance Accenture Cloud First’s migration and modernization services aimed at getting clients’ workloads to their optimal location on the cloud continuum – from edge and everything in between.”
Ian Zein, CEO of Sentia, said: “We’ve built Sentia into a leading managed cloud infrastructure transformation provider known for our ‘extreme ownership’, customer intimacy and operational excellence in complex (often regulated) environments. Now we can take our deep experience in both public and private cloud transformation to help Accenture clients operate with greater speed and achieve stronger business outcomes at scale.”
