Accenture has acquired Icon Integration, a privately held Australian technology consultancy that provides SAP digital supply chain solutions and services as well as specialised business intelligence (BI) solutions to clients across Australia and New Zealand. This acquisition will boost Accenture’s growing technology practice and number of SAP professionals in the region.
Icon Integration was founded in 2011 and employs a team of approximately 70 professionals at its offices in Sydney and Melbourne, as well as in New Zealand. The firm works with some of the regions’ largest retail, consumer goods and government organisations, bringing differentiated capabilities in supply chain execution, particularly warehouse management. Icon Integration also helps companies with data optimisation, as well as designing, developing and delivering bespoke enterprise technology solutions that help clients improve business performance and operational efficiencies.
“Over the last 10 years, Icon Integration’s founders have built a strong business with a senior team of professionals who take both business and technology needs into account to help clients improve business performance,” said Scott Hahn, who leads Accenture’s Technology practice in Australia and New Zealand. “Combined, Accenture and Icon Integration offer a unique proposition to help clients realise tangible business benefits from their technology investments. This acquisition supports our strategic growth objectives to meet rising demand for technology solutions by SAP users. We welcome Icon Integration’s team and clients to our practice.”
“We are excited by the opportunity to join forces with Accenture and to tap into their breadth of capabilities and specialisations that will significantly build on the success we have achieved in our business to date,” said Paul Roddis, co-founder and co-managing director at Icon Integration. “Our people will be able to expand their skills and grow their careers through exposure to new clients, new work and new experiences. Our clients will gain access to a broader set of services and capabilities, both locally and globally.”
