Accenture Acquires UK Government Digital Transformation Firm 6point6

merger and acquisitions

Accenture has agreed to acquire technology consultancy firm 6point6.

The acquisition, once completed, will expand Accenture’s presence and capability to support customers in the United Kingdom. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

London-headquartered 6point6 was founded in 2012. It offers digital transformation, cybersecurity and data services to the U.K. central government. Among its major projects is the shift of a government agency to a digital infrastructure, which Accenture described as the largest-ever cloud migration in Europe.

“6point6 has an impressive reputation across the U.K. public and private sectors with its powerful combination of digital transformation, data and cybersecurity expertise,” said Emma Kendrew, Accenture Technology lead for the U.K. and Ireland.

The decade-old firm employs approximately 400 people across the country and maintains an office in Manchester.

The agreement comes two months after Accenture announced the acquisition of Nautilus Consulting, another U.K.-based company that offers digital transformation support. Nautilus specializes in digital health care, particularly in electronic patient record technologies.
