Accenture : Completes Acquisition of Consulting Capabilities for PLM and ALM from DI Square

08/03/2021 | 05:08am EDT

Accenture Completes Acquisition of Consulting Capabilities for PLM and ALM from DI Square.

Accenture (NYSE: ACN) has completed its acquisition of DI Square's consulting capabilities for product lifecycle management (PLM) and application lifecycle management (ALM) systems integration to expand Accenture's engineering expertise. Terms of the transaction, which Accenture announced on June 14, were not disclosed.

Accenture acquired DI Square's PLM and ALM-related know-how and client contracts as well as approximately 70 DI Square professionals, joining Accenture's Industry X group in Japan, which helps clients digitize their core operations including the design, development, manufacturing and servicing of smart connected products.

DI Square's capabilities for PLM and ALM solutions and advanced engineering include 3D computer-aided design (CAD), computer-aided manufacturing (CAM), modular design and model-based systems engineering (MBSE). The company is a key implementation partner for PLM solutions from Dassault Systemes, one of Accenture's strategic alliance partners. Dassault Systemes solutions are widely adopted among Japanese manufacturers including automotive companies, which set particularly strict QCD (quality, cost and delivery) standards.

Accenture and DI Square are also establishing an ongoing alliance to streamline clients' acquisition of software licenses and hardware as part of implementing their PLM and ALM solutions.
