Accenture talks about its plans to acquire Linkbynet, a leading French cloud services provider 

Accenture recently announced its intentions to purchase Linkbynet, a top French cloud services provider which specializes in cloud optimization and managed services, cloud transformation and cloud security.

Linkbynet is a cloud-native solutions provider which was founded and based in Saint-Denis, France with offices in Belgium, Canada, China, France, Luxembourg, Mauritius, Singapore, and Vietnam.

With this transaction, an addition of more than 900 highly skilled professionals who have over 400 certifications from major cloud companies like Alibaba, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft will help in further advancing global capabilities of Accenture Cloud First.

“Acquiring Linkbynet would be another strategic step in strengthening our Accenture Cloud First capabilities,” said Karthik Narain, global lead, Accenture Cloud First. “Linkbynet’s talented team would bring deep cloud and engineering specialization, managed services, sophisticated technology tools and cybersecurity intelligence.”

Accenture Cloud First is a multi-service group of 70,000 cloud experts who are offering cloud expertise, industry solutions, ecosystem partner capabilities, and assets to assist clients in getting greater value from cloud at speed and scale.

Olivier Girard, market unit lead for Accenture France & Benelux said, “Entire industries have been challenged to not only reinvent their customer experience, but also their core offerings, while imagining new business models for the future. With advisory and digital transformation experience across cloud implementation, security, management and optimization, the Linkbynet team brings critical skills that would help Accenture clients adopt emerging technologies and scale them across their enterprise for strategic agility in a challenging business environment.”

Patrick and Stéphane Aisenberg, co-founders of Linkbynet said, “We are proud to be one of the first French cloud-native players and a pioneer in the synergistic models between technological transformation (cloud adoption), security and cloud managed services. The combination of Accenture’s and Linkbynet’s unique working culture, values, and technical expertise would enable us to better support our customers’ digital projects across multiple sectors, while providing their organizations with the same exceptional levels of service and resilience they’ve come to expect. We are excited about the opportunity to join Accenture in helping companies reimagine their business and rebuild differently for the benefit of all — from their customers and people to society at large.”

In the past two years, Accenture has acquired strategic investments to grow and enhance its cloud service capacity. Some of these also include the purchase of Gekko in June 2020 and Cirruseo in June 2019. More recently is the purchase of  Edenhouse (UK), Infinity Works (UK) and Cygni (Sweden).

Overall, Accenture has already acquired and invested over 1.5 billion dollars globally in its 2020 fiscal year to help the company gather skills and capabilities in strategic, high-growth market areas.
