Capgemini continues its acquisition policy with the purchase of Briancourt and Quorsus

After acquiring Singapore-based Aodigy Asia Pacific last month to strengthen its capabilities in Asia Pacific and Knowledge Expert, a provider of digital transformation services, Capgemini announced two new acquisitions this month: Braincourt, a business intelligence and data science company, to strengthen its data and analytics capabilities in Germany and Northern Europe, and Quorsus, to strengthen its capital markets services for financial institutions.

Capgemini, a digital services company, was founded by Serge Kampf on October 1ᵉʳ in Grenoble as Sogeti. Today, it has become a global leader in this sector and employs 350,000 people in more than 50 countries. With 55 years of experience and extensive expertise in a variety of industries, it addresses the full range of its clients’ needs, from strategy and design to operations management, through the capabilities of artificial intelligence, cloud, data, connectivity, software, digital engineering and platforms.

In 2022, the group is continuing its acquisition policy to accelerate the transformation of its service portfolio.

The acquisition of Braincourt GmbH

Last week, Capgemini announced that it had reached an agreement to acquire Braincourt, which should enable it to consolidate its data and analytics services offering in Germany and Northern Europe.

Founded in 2000 and based in Stuttgart, Braincourt has teams in Germany in Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Munich, Berlin and Graz, in Austria in Vienna and in Switzerland in Lucerne. The company has customers in various sectors: the automotive industry, telecommunications, but also in the chemical, energy, construction, mechanical engineering and pharmaceutical sectors. It is a recognized player in the field of business intelligence, data science and advanced project management services, particularly in the area of controlling support functions such as finance, HR, production and logistics.

Braincourt’s client base is highly complementary to Capgemini’s. Zhiwei Jiang, Managing Director of Capgemini’s Insights & Data business and member of the Group Executive Committee, comments:

“Braincourt brings to Capgemini its long experience in designing and implementing advanced business intelligence, artificial intelligence, and data analytics solutions to optimize performance management and business processes. This team of experts fits perfectly with Capgemini’s culture, data-driven service portfolio, client accounts, and skills. I am delighted to welcome them to the Group.”

The Quorsus acquisition

Earlier this week, Capgemini announced the acquisition of start-up Quorsus to enhance its offerings in the capital markets sector to meet growing regulatory requirements.

Based in London, Quorsus addresses the entire financial ecosystem, providing deep expertise in post-trade technologies, operations, regulatory solutions and market infrastructure, helping clients achieve their goals through intelligent platform and process re-engineering.

Since its inception in 2019, Quorsus has grown rapidly due to strong demand for these services, and is supported by a broad portfolio of clients including some of the world’s largest players, market infrastructure providers and capital markets trade associations.

Anirban Bose, Managing Director of Capgemini’s Financial Services business and member of the Capgemini Group Executive Committee, explains:

“The environment for financial institutions is changing rapidly due to consolidation, new technologies and evolving operating models, yet compliance remains a major requirement. The acquisition of Quorsus brings to our team a much needed set of expertise that will strengthen our capital markets services for financial institutions. With Quorsus, we further strengthen our ability to meet the end-to-end transformation needs of our financial services clients.
