In total, including its ServiceNow and Google, specialists, Cloud Sherpas employs 1,100 people, who will shortly join Accenture’s Cloud First division, which Paul Daugherty, Accenture’s CTO pitches as:
a game-changer that offers transformational cloud services to help clients move their businesses to the cloud and achieve significant business results more quickly.
It’s a move that appears to have the blessingl of Salesforce, with President Keith Block quoted in the official announcement as stating:
The combination of two strategic partners is exciting for our ecosystem and proof positive of momentum around our Customer Success Platform. This move further highlights how our world-class platform is helping ecosystem partners like Accenture and Cloud Sherpas innovate and deliver phenomenal levels of transformation and success for our customers.
