Empired + Intergen today becomes part of Capgemini, following the announcement by Capgemini that the acquisition of Empired Limited (ASX: EPD), including its subsidiary Intergen Limited, is now complete.
Today, Empired + Intergen’s team of 1,100 becomes part of a team of 3,500 in Australia and New Zealand, backed by 300,000 globally. Together, both organisations achieve greater scale, breadth and geographic coverage across Australia and New Zealand, along with the ability to fulfil their combined vision and purpose and further establish a position as a digital, data and cloud market leader with unrivalled Microsoft capabilities.
As part of Capgemini, Empired + Intergen will bring its customers a greater portfolio of services and access to global industry expertise through Capgemini’s extensive experience and scale.
Kaylene O’Brien, Managing Director for Capgemini Australia and New Zealand said, “It was clear that by bringing together our two organisations we could have more impact as a strategic partner helping our clients innovate and compete in an increasingly digital world. Even more exciting is what this means for all our people – with growth comes scale and more opportunities for our people to learn and get the future they want with us. Given our similar cultures and unwavering commitment to helping our people and clients excel, this is a significant milestone in the evolution of both organisations.”
Intergen’s Chief Executive Officer, Simon Bright said, “Coming together with Capgemini will allow us to build upon the enviable position we’ve created as one of Microsoft’s leading partners in New Zealand. Not only will we benefit from the support and backing of Capgemini’s global alliance and executive connections, we will also have the ability to leverage a broader range of global expertise for clients. For our people, this represents an opportunity to learn, build new skills and architect a career in whatever direction, technically or geographically, they want to go.
“As part of Capgemini, we’re looking forward to being able to further accelerate and bring even greater value to the outcomes our customers need in an ever-changing and increasingly digital world, at pace and with scale. We’re really excited about the immense capability, expertise, deep sector knowledge, IP and incredible new opportunities for innovation and acceleration that we can now bring to our customers.
“We remain a dedicated local and responsive partner to our customers, proud of and deeply committed to our Microsoft pedigree and our position as a Microsoft digital, data and cloud leader in Australia and New Zealand.”
Capgemini’s acquisition of Empired + Intergen is Capgemini’s fourth acquisition in the region over the past 18 months and supports its vision to achieve a leadership position in the Australasian market across digital, data and cloud – whilst partnering with clients to deliver exceptional service and innovative solutions.
