Accenture to lead S&P Global/IHS Markit merger integration

Accenture logoAccenture has been selected to lead the merger integration between S&P Global and IHS Markit. The merger, which was announced in November, is expected to close in the second half of this year.

S&P Global, listed on the NYSE, is “the world’s foremost provider of credit ratings, benchmarks and analytics in the global capital and commodity markets”. IHS Markit was formed via the merger of IHS Inc. (or Information Handling Services) and Markit Ltd, a British financial information and services company, in 2016. It is “a world leader in critical information, analytics and solutions for the major industries and markets that drive economies worldwide.”

Accenture will lead the merger integration planning and organisational design work for the combined entity, including all business divisions and corporate functions globally. It will draw from the best practices of both companies to ensure continuity while also maximising value for customers, employees, shareholders, and other key stakeholders.

This is a high-profile win for Accenture that sees it bringing together its strategy, technology, and operations expertise, as well as its industry knowledge, to deliver a complex integration for two well-known global brands. A key aim must be to successfully combine the two entities’ advanced data and analytics capabilities to deliver a compelling offering for the customer base.
