Dublin, Ireland-based company Accenture has approved the acquisition of Sentia on August 2, 2022. However, the amount of purchase was not disclosed. Sentia is Amsterdam, Netherlands-based cloud consulting company that manages private and public cloud migrations and provides digital-experience monitoring services.
As a part of the deal, around 310 employees from Sentia will join Accenture Cloud First.
Purpose of acquisition by Accenture
With the latest acquisition, Accenture is to buy Sentia’s operations in Bulgaria, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The purchase of Sentia enhances Accenture’s Cloud First capabilities to provide end-to-end cloud infrastructure services across the cloud continuum of public, private and sovereign clouds.
However, Sentia’s Danish business is not part of the acquisition. It will continue to operate as an independent business under the Sentia brand, supported by Waterland Private Equity as the principal shareholder. Moreover, the completion of the acquisition is subject to mandatory closing conditions, which include the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.
What the Accenture official has to say
Karthik Narain, global lead for Accenture Cloud First, said, “Total enterprise reinvention starts with a solid digital core. To activate this digital core, organizations need to build a scalable, fit-for-purpose cloud foundation that provides the strategic agility they need to ensure their resilience and future competitiveness. Adding Sentia’s specialists will enhance Accenture Cloud First’s migration and modernization services aimed at getting clients’ workloads to their optimal location on the cloud continuum — from public to edge and everything in between.”
In addition, Roy Ikink, lead for Accenture Cloud First Netherlands, commented, “With Sentia, we are expanding our strategic infrastructure engineering and emerging technologies capabilities across Europe, especially in the Netherlands and Belgium. The Sentia team brings valuable experience with sovereign cloud strategies designed to help clients address local regulations and requirements around data privacy, access and control.”

Ian Zein, Sentia’s CEO, 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 (often regulated) 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.”
