The combined service offering will be named Accenture Automation and Industrial Solutions.
“The worldwide market for automation and industrial IT services is growing rapidly as rising commodities prices have led companies to make significant investments in their core operations,” said Sander van’t Noordende, group chief executive of Accenture’s Resources operating group. “With this acquisition, Accenture benefits from ATAN’s experience in helping companies make the most of their investments by combining the best practices in consulting with innovative approaches to the use of technology in industrial situations.”
