Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has acquired Organize Cloud Labs, a Brazil-based company operating as ServiceNow’s first Elite partner in Latin America. The acquisition is aimed at strengthening Accenture’s information technology (IT) capabilities and deep industry experience in cloud strategy, migration, implementation and management.
Founded in 2014, Organize Cloud Labs holds one of the highest number of certifications in the ServiceNow platform in the region and joins Accenture’s global ServiceNow practice.
The acquisition is intended to help large enterprises access more local cloud expertise to innovate and transform existing processes and infrastructure. Accenture expects that enterprises to be better equipped to respond to end-user needs as part of their digital transformation.
“The combination of Accenture’s global ServiceNow experience and the local skills acquired through Organize Cloud Labs will strengthen our ability to help local clients ensure business resilience,” said Paulo Ossamu, who leads Accenture Technology in Latin America. “The acquisition will enhance our position as a leader in ServiceNow capabilities steeped in strategy, business and industry knowledge and, most importantly, strong cloud talent.”
ServiceNow Platform in Brazil
The ServiceNow platform helps organizations manage digital workflows to drive business growth and resilience with dynamic and simplified processes. It would enable organizations to accelerate their digital transformations and enhance their employees’ and customers’ experience with IT-related tasks across all areas of the company.
With the acquisition, Accenture expands its regional portfolio of user experience consultancy services and ServiceNow solutions and services. This includes proof of concept, design and implementation, and assistance planning.
“It has been an incredible and satisfying journey to help improve the lives of so many people,” said Leandro Torres, founder of Organize Cloud Labs, who will lead Accenture Technology’s ServiceNow practice in Latin America. “We’re proud that our team has grown and expanded our knowledge of the ServiceNow platform in the Brazilian market, helping companies of all segments and sizes increase their competitiveness and delight their customers and employees. Now, as part of Accenture, we’re excited to bring more opportunities to our people and enhanced capabilities to our clients.”
The acquisition would also enable Accenture to expand its training and customized workshops for local clients to increase their knowledge and use of the ServiceNow platform.
“Beyond operating as implementation partners, Accenture also uses ServiceNow as its primary platform for enabling cross enterprise functions, such as human resources and IT services, for its 513,000 employees worldwide,” said Kátia Ortiz, CEO of ServiceNow in Brazil. “Together, we can capture the learnings of Accenture’s own transformation for our mutual clients in Brazil and Latin America.”
