Global Professional Services Provider Accenture Acquires Independent SAP Partner Edenhouse
Global professional services provider Accenture has acquired independent SAP partner Edenhouse. Operating in more than 120 countries, Accenture was founded in 1989. It has global headquarters in Dublin, Ireland, and offers strategy, consulting, and interactive, technology and operations services powered by “the world’s largest network of Advanced Technology and Intelligent Operations centers”. The deal comes on the heels of acquisitions that included New Zealand-based SAP and cloud solutions technology firm Zag in October of last year.

Accenture offers digital, cloud, and security services to support its management consulting, systems integration, business process outsourcing, and application and infrastructure outsourcing options. It caters to companies in more than 40 industries. Accenture’s acquisition of United Kingdom-based Edenhouse strengthens its SAP cloud capabilities and underscores its leadership in the UK. Financial aspects of the deal were not released.

Established in 2008, Edenhouse is an SAP platinum partner. The company specializes in offering SAP options to medium-sized companies. The company’s SAP value extends to on-premises and cloud-based solutions, which it supports with in-depth technical knowledge and industry know-how. The awards it has received include SAP EMEA North Award for Partner Excellence 2021 for Top SME Cloud Performer. The acquisition adds 220 professionals to Accenture’s SAP Business Group and this will allow the company to enhance its UK activity effectively.

“Now that Edenhouse is part of Accenture, we’re in an even stronger position in the UK to help our clients harness change and accelerate their transformational journeys,” explained Accenture’s Intelligent Platform Services Lead for the UK and Ireland, Mr. John Erik Ellingsen. “The global pandemic has increased demand for SAP’s cloud-based solutions and the additional skills we now have access to will enable us to rapidly meet the needs of our clients, helping them to progress more quickly on their path to value and become more sustainable businesses for the future.”

“Together, Accenture and Edenhouse are a great fit. Being part of Accenture will provide amazing opportunities for our staff and our clients,” added Edenhouse’s CEO, Paul Solomon. “We have similar shared values, including putting business outcomes at the heart of everything we do to deliver 360° value for clients and leveraging our deep relationships with SAP. We’re excited to be able to bring the combination of our people, technology and industry excellence to take digital transformation to the next level for our clients.”
