Consulting and professional services firm Accenture has acquired DAZ Systems Inc., a Southern California software maker and provider of Oracle ERP Cloud services.
Accenture didn’t provide financial terms of the deal but said the acquisition further bolsters its Oracle capabilities and “delivers new value for clients on their journeys to the cloud.”
With the acquisition, DAZ’s more than 300 professionals will join Accenture’s Oracle Business Group.
Accenture said El Segundo, California-based DAZ has broad experience and assets that help organizations deploy and integrate enterprise performance management and human capital management applications.
Founded in 1995, DAZ is one of Oracle’s (NYSE: ORCL) top platinum-level partners, having implemented more than 500 Oracle Cloud systems to date.
“Organizations demand proven expertise, as well as new innovative solutions and methods to help them transform their businesses,” Bhaskar Ghosh, group chief executive of Accenture Technology Services, said in a statement. “DAZ will help us continue to deliver the very best thinking and capabilities to our clients.”
“DAZ’s mission is to help organizations implement mission-critical business systems by bringing a contemporary perspective and experience-driven insights,” said DAZ Chief Executive Walt Zipperman. “Joining Accenture is an incredible opportunity to advance this goal by combining our strengths with Accenture’s in depth capabilities and global scale. Together, we’ll be able to deliver substantial value for clients around the world.
Accenture said the addition of DAZ builds on its recent acquisition of Certus Solutions, a U.K.-based Oracle Cloud implementation provider.
Accenture provides a range of professional services in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations. It has a staff of 459,000 worldwide and clients in more than 120 countries.
“At Accenture, we continually look for new ways to empower our clients to embrace the power of digital technologies to improve their businesses,” said Annette Rippert, senior managing director at Accenture Technology, North America. “DAZ is a valued Oracle partner and brings an impressive track record and top talent that will help drive significant results for our clients.” – LA Biz
