IT services provider Accenture is set to acquire Brightstep, a Swedish digital consulting company focusing on digital content and commerce solutions.
The purchase of the Stockholm-based Brightstep will enable Accenture Interactive to offer expertise of professionals trained in digital commerce solutions from Intershop, hybris software and Adobe. Accenture did not disclose terms of the transaction.
Brightstep, employing more than 60 people, provides services for digital platform selection, development, implementation and maintenance delivered to companies in the retail, fashion, telecommunications and resources industries. The company, founded in 2001, delivers consulting and implementation work around Adobe Marketing Cloud solutions, including Adobe Experience Manager, Adobe Analytics and Adobe Target.
