Accenture Federal Services has completed its acquisition of advanced analytics company Novetta, following the June 1 announcement of its intent to acquire.
Novetta applies insights and disruptive technologies like artificial intelligence, machine learning, cyber, cloud and information exploitation to transform how defense, intelligence, and law enforcement organizations use data to better meet their missions and empower their workforces.
With the acquisition, Accenture Federal Services adds a new national security portfolio to its business, to be led by Novetta President and CEO Tiffanny Gates.
“I’m tremendously excited about my role as senior managing director of this new segment of Accenture Federal Services’ business,” Gates said. “Our disruptive technologies combined with Accenture Federal Services’ ability to deliver federal innovation at scale are highly complementary and will play a major role in meeting our clients’ mission needs.”
The acquisition adds approximately 1,300 people, including software developers, data scientists and specialists in machine learning, cyber, cloud and information exploitation to AFS’ 11,000-person workforce.
“Our combined company brings the scale and power of Accenture Federal Services’ digital capabilities together with Novetta’s ability to solve the government’s toughest mission challenges with precision,” said Accenture Federal Services CEO John Goodman. “We look forward to delivering the next-generation of solutions that today’s missions and times demand.”
