Global trends such as digitization, mobility and “everything as a service” are transforming the value chain of industrial clients, creating a demand for solutions that enable digital and intelligent processes and services—an emerging business environment that Accenture calls Digital Industry 4.0.
To address this growing demand for digital solutions, Accenture has acquired the industrial and embedded software business of evopro group, a leading software development and engineering group with locations in Germany, Hungary, Romania and Turkey. The acquisition strengthens Accenture’s engineering and software development skills and supports Accenture’s digital initiatives.
This is Accenture’s third acquisition that will enhance its range of capabilities to help manufacturing clients organize, develop and manage the processes needed for the entire lifecycle of new products and services. In 2013, Accenture acquired PRION Group and PCO Innovation, two system integration companies specializing in the delivery of Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) services.
