Accenture Federal Services announced on June 1 that it agreed to acquire Novetta and Tiffanny Gates, president and CEO of Novetta and a 2021 Wash100 Award recipient, said the transaction presents an opportunity for both companies, CRN reported Wednesday.
“Teaming with Accenture Federal Services will be an opportunity for both of us,” said Gates. “Not only will we extend each others’ reach across our customers, we are making transformational technologies to be stronger, faster, and better, enabling us to stay on the leading edge.”
Gates added that Novetta has 1,350 employees that deliver niche services and mission support to U.S. federal government clients and non-government customers.
Ira Entis, senior managing director of growth and strategy at Accenture Federal Services, said Novetta will enable the company to adopt a more focused approach to delivering cloud, artificial intelligence, cyber and digital platforms to federal government clients.
“Novetta brings us new scale in the new technologies,” Entis said. “And it brings in cutting-edge capabilities that we can lean in to when clients need the latest capabilities. Novetta expand our footprint. And they bring us new packaged capabilities that make our offerings more easily consumable and speed time to value.”
