Accenture Snaps Up Nashco For ServiceNow Capabilities

Accenture has agreed to acquire Canadian IT consulting firm Nashco in an apparent bid to ramp up its ServiceNow capabilities.
ServiceNow is a cloud-based workflow and automation platform. Many outsourcing firms are offering it as a managed service.
Headquartered in Alberta, Canada, Nashco focuses exclusively on ServiceNow consulting, design, and implementation services.
Accenture is already a force to be reckoned with in the ServiceNow ecosystem, and the acquisition will only bolster its position further. Naschco adds 25 ServiceNow specialists to Accenture, which already has more than 800 such professionals dedicated to the platform.
“Our clients are increasingly seeking to adopt as-a-service operating models, and this acquisition represents the latest in a series of significant investments in our cloud business to meet the growing demand,” said Julie Sweet, Accenture’s chief executive in North America.
Founded in 1993, Nashco says its platform transforms the workplace by automating workflows for IT, security, customer service, and HR.
“The acquisition of Nashco supports our Cloud First agenda, further expands our service cloud capabilities, and adds to our capacity to help clients on their journey to the cloud easier and more efficient,” said Jack Sepple, senior managing director, Accenture Cloud and Accenture Operations group technology officer.
Accenture’s ServiceNow practice grew big when it acquired Cloud Sherpas, adding more than 1,000 employees. Today, it has employed more than 33,000 professionals trained in cloud computing, and it claims to have worked on over 20,000 cloud-computing projects so far.
