Accenture has acquired Strongbow Consulting, a data-driven strategic advisory firm that helps organizations plan and execute technology transformation strategies.
Strongbow Consulting’s team of approximately 60 professionals is joining Accenture’s Technology Strategy & Advisory practice, expanding capabilities in modernizing companies’ IT infrastructure.
Strongbow Consulting will become an integral part of Accenture Technology Strategy & Advisory in North America, forming the core of its Tech Value practice, which was launched when Advocate joined last year.
Strongbow Consulting will also help expand Accenture’s Technology Business Management solutions with its capacity to find and unlock savings to fund modernization and innovation programs, the company said.
“This acquisition reinforces and fuels our ambition of helping clients seek, find and expand value by extracting maximum utility from their technology investments,” said Keith Boone, Accenture’s Technology Strategy & Advisory North America lead.
“Strongbow Consulting will assist our clients in architecting, designing and running infrastructure modernization programs that improve speed to market and provide the agility required by today’s digital businesses.”
Headquartered in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and founded in 2014, Strongbow Consulting brings together commercial and technical expertise in infrastructure modernization across hybrid cloud, networking and end-user compute environments.
“We are excited to bring our expertise to bear in order to scale and further augment Accenture’s Tech Value capabilities while helping more clients extract maximum value from their technology investments,” said Strongbow Consulting Founder and CEO Cathy Horst Forsyth.
