Accenture says it's acquiring Navisite, the large MSP that also bills itself as a "digital transformation provider," to bolster its application and infrastructure managed services capabilities in North America.
Accenture, the global professional services giant, provides a wide range of services and solutions in strategy, consulting, digital, technology and operations. Navisite offers application software maintenance, enterprise hosting and cloud desktop services. It has customers worldwide.
The acquisition will enhance Accenture's ability to help U.S. and Canadian clients modernize for artificial intelligence (AI) by building a strong digital core steeped in data, cloud and AI, the company said.
Accenture isn't saying how much it's paying for Navisite, a deal that is subject to customary closing conditions.

Based in Andover, Massachusetts, Navisite’s team of about 1,500 people will join Accenture’s infrastructure engineering practice. With more than 400 cloud engineers, Navisite is known for its extensive experience across multiple cloud providers, enterprise applications and digital technologies, serving clients in technology, business services, health care, life sciences and manufacturing.
