Revenue from Consulting Services increased 6.7 percent. Local Professional Services (Sogeti) rose 1.4 percent. Application Services grew 5.1 percent.
Revenue growth for the third quarter, primarily driven by the acceleration of clients’ investment in digital and cloud projects, reached 8.2 percent. Other Managed Services decreased 13.7 percent due to the anticipated decline in revenue of a major contract in the United Kingdom and an unfavorable economic environment in Brazil.
North America, the largest region with 31 percent of revenues, grew 5.2 percent, with a positive momentum in Financial Services as well as in CPRDT (Consumer Products, Retail, Distribution and Transportation), and a slowdown in energy and utilities.
The UK and Ireland region experienced 11 percent reduction in revenues due to the evolution of a major contract. In Asia-Pacific and Latin America, growth was limited to 3.7 percent in Q3 due to the economic environment in Brazil,
