Accenture acquires Italian software company i4C Analytics

30 Apr 2014

Accenture has acquired Milan-headquartered technology company i4C Analytics for an undisclosed sum. The acquisition will make it possible for Accenture to deploy easy-to-use, tailored analytics platforms for its customers.

i4C’s Application Configuration Environment (ACE) offers a scalable platform that enables the agile development of Advanced Analytics Applications (AAAs), turn-key industry- and function-specific solutions that enable accelerated time to insight, action and achieving business outcomes.

The applications can be designed and built in a short amount of time, and integrate fully with clients’ workflow processes to shorten the time from data intake to decision output.

The applications are flexible, easily tailored and agile, providing clients with immediate access to the tools they need to make timely analytics-based decisions to solve their business problems.

From data to decisions

“In a market where apps are everything, our analytics-savvy clients are looking to Accenture to help them get from data to decisions as quickly as possible,” said Narendra Mulani, senior managing director of Accenture Analytics, part of Accenture Digital.

“The acquisition of i4C Analytics is designed to help them do this in a fast, flexible and targeted manner.

“The days of bulky advanced analytics solutions that take time to create and are expensive to maintain are gone. With i4C, we will be able to build apps quickly and ensure they are as easy as possible for clients to access, understand and action insights based on relevant, timely data,” Mulani said.
