Accenture | August 02, 2022
Accenture has agreed to acquire Sentia’s businesses in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria. With headquarters in the Netherlands, the Sentia group is a leading cloud consulting company that manages private and public cloud migrations and provides digital-experience monitoring services.
With more than 500 certifications, Sentia’s team of approximately 310 cloud specialists in the Netherlands, Belgium and Bulgaria will join Accenture Cloud First. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
The acquisition expands Accenture’s Cloud First capabilities to provide end-to-end cloud infrastructure services across the cloud continuum of public, private and sovereign clouds. Today’s news arrives as the plethora of cloud options create more complexity for organizations as they navigate different architectures, burgeoning innovations and changing regulations.
"Total enterprise reinvention starts with a solid digital core. To activate this digital core, organizations need to build a scalable, fit-for-purpose cloud foundation that provides the strategic agility they need to ensure their resilience and future competitiveness. “Adding Sentia’s specialists will enhance Accenture Cloud First’s migration and modernization services aimed at getting clients’ workloads to their optimal location on the cloud continuum — from public to edge and everything in between.”
Karthik Narain, global lead for Accenture Cloud First
“With Sentia, we are expanding our strategic infrastructure engineering and emerging technologies capabilities across Europe, especially in the Netherlands and Belgium,” said Roy Ikink, lead for Accenture Cloud First Netherlands. “The Sentia team brings valuable experience with sovereign cloud strategies designed to help clients address local regulations and requirements around data privacy, access and control.”
Sentia currently provides cloud advisory and delivery services spanning hybrid and multi cloud strategy; cloud transformation; and migration, among others. The company’s main cloud control and optimization services include cloud managed services, cloud security services, and cloud infrastructure migration. Sentia also offers unique digital experience monitoring services that analyze, track and predict enterprise applications and cloud services from an end user’s perspective.
Ian Zein, Sentia’s CEO said, “We’ve built Sentia into a leading managed cloud infrastructure transformation provider known for our ‘extreme ownership,’ customer intimacy and operational excellence in complex (often regulated) environments. Now we can take our deep experience in both public and private cloud transformation to help Accenture clients operate with greater speed and achieve stronger business outcomes at scale.”
Note: Sentia’s Danish business is not part of the acquisition and will continue as an independent business under the Sentia brand, supported by Waterland Private Equity as main shareholder. Completion of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.

Combining unmatched experience and specialized skills across more than 40 industries, we offer Strategy and Consulting, Technology and Operations services and Accenture Song — all powered by the world’s largest network of Advanced Technology and Intelligent Operations centers.
