Contribute to create a global digital transformation leader for industrial and tech companies
With the data revolution and the rapid deployment of cloud, IoT 1 , Edge Computing 2 , Artificial Intelligence and 5G technologies, industrial and technology companies are entering a new era in their history.
Capgemini is a global leader in consulting, IT services and digital transformation, and Altran is the world leader in engineering and R&D services.
The combination of Capgemini’s and Altran’s complementary expertise will provide a unique offer in the market, serving the transformation of industrial and technology companies.
This great industrial project is the first major combination of two leaders in such complementary fields: Operations Technologies (engineering and R&D services) for Altran, and Information Technologies for Capgemini.
It will create a major player in the Intelligent Industry 3 , a group with revenues of €17 billion with more than 265,000 employees.
Due to its increased size and the expansion of its portfolio of offers, the combined Group will benefit from increased access to operational decision-makers from key accounts in industries (Aeronautics, Automotive, Life Sciences and Telecommunications) including R&D, Production and Supply chain.
