The acquisition is expected to scale Accenture’s capabilities in the UK to meet accelerated demand for SAP’s cloud-based solutions
Accenture has acquired Edenhouse, a UK-based IT service management firm which provides SAP consultancy services, for an undisclosed sum.
Accenture said that the transaction will further boost its capabilities to help clients in their digital transformation journey.
Established in 2008, Edenhouse caters to mid-sized businesses by leveraging its expertise in the sale, implementation, support, and hosting of SAP products and services.
The company as an SAP platinum partner is expected to scale the capabilities of Accenture in the UK to meet accelerated demand for SAP’s cloud-based solutions.
Accenture UK and Ireland SAP business group lead Mukul Dixit said: “By teaming with Edenhouse we will broaden the depth of our SAP capabilities to serve our large and mid-sized clients on their next phase of growth and transformation, and cement our leadership position in the UK market.
“I’m excited by the possibilities that this acquisition opens up for our clients through our combined SAP expertise coupled with Accenture’s deep industry knowledge, end-to-end transformational capabilities and global reach.”
As part of the deal, Edenhouse’s 220 employees will join Accenture’s SAP Business Group in the UK.
Edenhouse CEO Paul Solomon said: “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 360° 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.”
Last October, Accenture acquired Zag, a SAP and cloud solutions technology company based in New Zealand.
The acquisition of Zag is said to have strengthened the digital transformation capabilities of Accenture in New Zealand and Australia to cope up with the demand from organisations moving to the cloud and SAP’s next-generation products.
Last month, Accenture acquired Wolox, an Argentina-based cloud-native and agile development company.
The acquisition is expected to help Accenture to boost its cloud-first and digital transformation capabilities in Argentina and South America.
