Accenture' Imaginea acquisition

Accenture recently launched the Accenture Cloud First, which is a multi-service level group of more than 50000+ cloud employees focused highly on helping enterprise customers migrate to the cloud.

The latest acquisition brings around 1,350 cloud professionals to Accenture. These professionals bring skillsets in full-stack with cloud data and cloud modernization skills across multiple platforms from Amazon Web Services, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform. 

This month, Accenture also acquired cloud-native and agile development firm, Wolox.  Accenture intends to integrate Wolox offerings across its services such as strategy and consulting, operations and technology.
