Accenture, a UK-based consultancy with a focus on cybersecurity and cloud data, acquires 6point6. The deal’s sum wasn’t made public until it was announced on October 31, 2023. Acquisition completion is contingent upon meeting standard closing demands, such as obtaining regulatory approval.
Accenture’s strategy and architectural capabilities will be enhanced by the acquisition, which will span both the public and commercial sectors. Central government, security and defence, and financial services will receive special attention.
6point6, which was founded in 2012 and is run by CEO Nefyn Jones, has a track record of successfully completing major tasks for the central government of the United Kingdom that update outdated systems and change digital capabilities.
The company, which employs about 400 people and has offices in Manchester and London, specialises in three main areas: cybersecurity, data, and digital transformation.
One of its initiatives involved moving an entire U.K. government department to a single cloud-based digital infrastructure, which was the largest cloud migration in Europe. Another involved using digital services to save a different government agency time, and a multinational energy company adopted machine learning to boost productivity.
