Accenture acquires Spanish intelligence

LogoAccenture has acquired big data, AI and advanced analytics services specialist, Pragsis Bidoop. The Madrid-HQ’d company, which also has offices in Barcelona and the UK, will add over 200 personnel with deep machine learning, artificial intelligence and big data engineering experience to Accenture’s Applied Intelligence business. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Founded in 2004, Pragsis Bidoop has built-up a diversified client base comprising large Spanish businesses and multinationals with a presence in Mexico, Brazil and other Latin American markets. Last year the company launched a drive into the wider European theatre opening branches in London, Amsterdam and Berlin. Pragsis Bidoop’s portfolio of solutions include big data and AI solutions for digital twins, machine learning to optimise manufacturing processes, and advanced predictive models to reduce, for example, supply chain forecasting errors, lost sales and maintenance costs.

This latest acquisition by Accenture Applied Intelligence, which employs more than 20,000 staff world-wide, follows hot on the heels of the purchase last month of Australian big data and analytics consultancy, Analytics8. Earlier in the year Accenture also took a minority stake in its partner, Splice Machine, which has developed an operational artificial intelligence platform (see here).
