Accenture has acquired Nextira, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Partner that uses AWS to deliver cloud-native innovation, predictive analytics, and immersive experiences. These services and solutions are expected to bolster the Accenture “Cloud First” set of engineering capabilities and help clients take advantage of a full continuum of cloud capabilities and tools.
Nextira builds cloud-based solutions and services with artificial intelligence, machine learning, and data analytics that enable clients to design, build, launch, and optimize high-performance computing environments. In addition, Nextira offers a solution designed to provide clients with a virtual environment to support development and rendering of 3D objects.
“Nextira brings in proven expertise in engineering and architecting the cloud solutions that form a digital core for continuous innovation,” said Karthik Narain, global lead for Accenture Cloud First. “We will combine Nextira’s AI, machine learning, and data and analytics abilities with Accenture’s approach to using modern data platforms on cloud. This will deliver the actionable insights and predictive outcomes that our clients need to create new applications and services, deliver innovative customer and employee experiences, and fuel their next wave of product and market growth.”
Founded in 2008 and based in Austin, Texas, Nextira’s nearly 70 employees will join the Accenture AWS Business Group, a team of more than 20,000 certified professionals. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The combination is expected to connect Nextira’s experience in platform and software engineering with Accenture’s breadth of knowledge across cloud technologies. The initial focus will be on media and entertainment industry clients.
