Accenture to Acquire Sentia in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria

Accenture has agreed to acquire Sentia’s businesses in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria. With headquarters in the Netherlands, the Sentia group is a leading cloud consulting company that manages private and public cloud migrations and provides digital-experience monitoring services.

“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 public to edge and everything in between.”

With more than 500 certifications, Sentia’s team of approximately 310 cloud specialists in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria will join Accenture Cloud First. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

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. Today’s news arrives as the plethora of cloud options create more complexity for organizations as they navigate different architectures, burgeoning innovations and changing regulations.
