Azeo sold to Accenture

The leading Microsoft and IoT solution provider joins Avanade, a subsidiary of Accenture

Azeo’s 250 employees, with deep Microsoft expertise across modern workplace, data and artificial intelligence (AI), cloud and IoT solutions, will join Avanade to offer clients in France a wide portfolio of tailored, end-to-end, Microsoft-based business transformation solutions.

Avanade, the leading digital innovator on the Microsoft ecosystem, has entered into exclusive negotiations to acquire Azeo, a highly regarded provider of Microsoft and IoT (the Internet of Things) services in France.

Through this acquisition, Avanade will substantially strengthen its strategic position in the Microsoft ecosystem across France. Azeo’s significant presence in Bordeaux will enable Avanade to expand its footprint in the heart of France’s technology and innovation sector situated in the Nouvelle-Aquitaine region.

“Azeo is a highly respected premium Microsoft partner with deep expertise in our technology solutions,” said Emmanuelle Berthier, Avanade country manager for France. “Azeo’s Microsoft experts will complement our own expertise in these areas and its presence in Bordeaux will pave the way for us to build a strong presence in an important region of the French technology community. Together, we will be able to support clients throughout all of France.”

Acquisition would combine both companies’ deep expertise across business solutions on the Microsoft platform and pave the way for Avanade’s expansion into the Bordeaux region, a hub for French tech innovation.
