Accenture Federal Services (AFS) has completed its recent acquisition of Novetta, a McLean, Virginia-based advanced analytics company.
“Our combined company brings the scale and power of Accenture Federal Services’ digital capabilities together with Novetta’s ability to solve the government’s toughest mission challenges with precision,” said Accenture Federal Services CEO and four-time Wash100 Award recipient John Goodman. “We look forward to delivering the next generation of solutions that today’s missions and times demand.”
With the acquisition, AFS adds a new National Security portfolio to its business to be led by Novetta President and CEO Tiffanny Gates.
The acquisition adds approximately 1,300 people, including software developers, data scientists, and specialists in machine learning, cyber, cloud, and information exploitation to AFS’ 11,000 person workforce.
This portfolio will provide the highly specialized, mission solutions that clients turn to for expertise in the converging domains of analytics, intelligence expertise, cloud engineering, and cyber.
“I’m tremendously excited about my role as senior managing director of this new segment of Accenture Federal Services’ business,” said Gates, a three-time Wash100 Award winner. “Our disruptive technologies combined with Accenture Federal Services’ ability to deliver federal innovation at scale are highly complementary and will play a major role in meeting our clients’ mission needs.”
