Capgemini has acquired 100% stake in Minneapolis-based BI Consulting Group (BICG), a full-service technology consultancy for customers who purchase Oracle Business Intelligence (BI) and Enterprise Performance Management (EPM) technologies.
Capgemini acquisition of BICG follows the acquisition of a BIM company — Avantias in France. Both these acquisitions are expected to strengthen the company’s position in Business Information Management (BIM) segment in France and North America.
BICG’s offerings include implementation, support, education and software enhancement services.
Capgemini said that BIM is a key strategic growth area, as there is a strong demand from organisations interested in new strategies and techniques to retain, organise and gain insight from their most valuable asset — information.
Capgemini US CEO Lanny Cohen said the acquisition of BICG amplifies Capgemini’s position as one of the prominent providers of Oracle BI and EPM technologies in North America.
"Capgemini recognises that an investment in the leading-edge business analytic tools that BICG supports, will help clients gain real business value through a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of their business trends and performance, with a service offering portfolio that addresses their entire information lifecycle," Cohen said.
