Accenture has announced a deal to acquire Climb, a Japanese company that provides system integration, IT infrastructure management and operations services.

The acquisition will enable Accenture to use Climb’s expertise to support Japan-based companies’ digital transformation efforts and allow Climb’s local experts to strengthen Japan’s information communication technology sector, Accenture said.

According to Atsushi Egawa, head of Accenture’s business in Japan, the addition of the Climb team demonstrates the company’s commitment to expanding its presence in the Japanese market.

“There are many talented engineers in regional areas of Japan who are leading digital transformation work,” the executive said. “Providing opportunities for these individuals to shine on the global stage will help elevate their skills to new heights, while at the same time revitalizing the local economy.”

“We are planting more local roots through our team’s high-value work in local communities,” he added.

Founded and based in Maebashi, Climb works with financial institutions, manufacturers, telecommunications carriers and government agencies.

By acquiring the company, Accenture will absorb around 200 engineers trained in cloud, security and application management services.

Climb President Osamu Kanai said the company employees will continue to provide value-added services to customers.

Accenture did not disclose the terms of the transaction, which will be completed subject to customary closing conditions.
