No brainer: Capgemini sets to courting Braincourt

Capgemini has entered into a share purchase agreement to acquire Braincourt, a specialist in business intelligence and data science services. This acquisition will enhance Capgemini’s data and analytics capabilities in Germany and Northern Europe.

Headquartered in Stuttgart, Braincourt’s team members are located across Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Founded in 2000 the company has built a reputation for its industry leading capabilities in business intelligence, data science and advanced project management services, particularly across key business functions such as finance, HR, production and logistics.

Braincourt’s client base is highly complementary to Capgemini’s and includes leading brands in the automotive, construction, energy and telecommunications industries.

Zhiwei Jiang, CEO of Capgemini’s Insights & Data Global Business Line and member of the Group Executive Committee, said: “Braincourt will bring to Capgemini a well-established track record in the design and implementation of advanced business intelligence, AI, analytics and data science solutions for optimizing performance management and business processes. The team of experts are a natural fit for Capgemini in terms of culture, as well as their portfolio of data driven services, key accounts and competences. I am happy to welcome them to the Group.”

Günter Hauser, executive partner of Braincourt, said: “We are very much looking forward to bringing our deep expertise – for instance in the business function controlling domain – to augment Capgemini’s data and analytics offerings. Not only will our team members benefit from contributing to projects that leverage Capgemini’s breadth and depth of business offerings but our clients, many of whom are global brands, will have access to a much broader range of services that can be delivered for them across the globe.”
