Accenture has just announced the acquisition of Sentia. The Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria offices will all become part of Accenture. Accenture states that it made the acquisition to bolster its cloud infrastructure capabilities.
With Sentia, Accenture gains a certified cloud MSP with extensive knowledge of AWS and Azure. Sentia is a Dutch company headquartered in the Netherlands and has offices in several countries. Sentia’s strength lies in the clouds of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure. In total, Sentia has 310 cloud specialists who have more than 500 cloud certificates. As a result, Sentia has been an official cloud MSP for both AWS and Azure for many years.

In addition to the Sentia offices, Accenture is also taking over all personnel in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria, who will become part of the Accenture Cloud First division. The goal remains to provide end-to-end solutions in public, private and sovereign clouds.
Sentia’s Danish office is not part of the acquisition. This branch office will continue independently under the Sentia name. Waterland Private Equity supports the Danish branch as the largest shareholder.
Sentia’s CEO, Ian Zein, said of the acquisition:
“We’ve built Sentia into a leading managed cloud infrastructure transformation provider known for our ‘extreme ownership,’ customer intimacy and operational excellence in complex (often regulated) environments. Now we can take our deep experience in both public and private cloud transformation to help Accenture clients operate with greater speed and achieve stronger business outcomes at scale.”
