The Netherland-based cloud consulting company that manages private and public cloud migrations Sentia has been acquired by Accenture. The deal, the amount of which remains undisclosed, will speed up Accenture’s Cloud First capabilities in Europe and provide end-to-end cloud infrastructure services across the cloud continuum of public, private, and sovereign clouds.
Amsterdam-based Sentia provides cloud advisory and delivery services spanning hybrid and multi-cloud strategy, cloud transformation, and migration. The startup also offers digital experience monitoring services that analyse, track and predict enterprise applications and cloud services from an end user’s perspective.
With over 500 certifications, Sentia’s team of approximately 310 cloud specialists in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria will join Accenture Cloud First. Its Danish business, however, is not part of the acquisition and will continue as an independent business.
Sentia CEO Ian Zein said: “We’ve built Sentia into a leading managed cloud infrastructure transformation provider known for our ‘extreme ownership,’ customer intimacy and operational excellence in complex environments. Now we can take our deep experience in both public and private cloud transformation to help Accenture clients operate with greater speed and achieve stronger business outcomes at scale.”
Roy Ikink, lead for Accenture Cloud First Netherlands added: “With Sentia, we are expanding our strategic infrastructure engineering and emerging technologies capabilities across Europe, especially in the Netherlands and Belgium.”
