Accenture has signed an agreement to acquire UK-based technology consultancy 6point6.

6point6 specializes in cloud, data and cybersecurity. The acquisition will enhance Accenture’s strategy and architecture capabilities, with a particular emphasis on central government, defense and security and financial services.
