Accenture Federal Services to acquire Novetta
Accenture Federal Services (AFS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Accenture, has entered into an agreement to acquire Novetta, an advanced analytics company serving U.S. federal organizations that are pushing the limits of what’s possible with machine learning, cyber, and cloud engineering.
Novetta applies insights and disruptive technologies to transform how defense, intelligence, and law enforcement organizations can use data to better meet their mission and empower their workforce.
Novetta’s 1,300 employees—which include software developers, data scientists, and specialists in AI, machine learning, cyber, cloud, and information exploitation—will join Accenture Federal Services’ more than 10,500 employees. Together, they say they will deliver the next generation of programs to change and improve how the federal government works in the digital domain and be more innovative, agile, and secure.
“Novetta will bring expanded capabilities, broad client relationships, and unique assets that complement our work in the national security sector and add greater scale to our digital capabilities,” said Accenture Federal Services CEO, John Goodman. “By joining forces, we will help clients in all government sectors become leaders in using sophisticated analytics and emerging technologies to solve problems in new ways and transform how they meet their missions.”
The completion of the acquisition from the global investment firm The Carlyle Group Inc. is subject to regulatory review and other customary closing conditions. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
