Accenture Acquires Search Technologies    [Date Added : 08/08/2017 ]
Accenture has acquired Search Technologies, a Herndon, Virginia-based technology services firm specializing in the design, implementation and management of big data and search analytics. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The company's nearly 200 data engineers and search experts will join Accenture Analytics, where they will focus on developing and implementing solutions that make unstructured content - from social media to video to voice and audio - searchable to support data discovery, analytics and large-scale reporting.

Search Technologies' proprietary Content Processing Framework and collection of API-level data connectors - which enable access to unstructured enterprise data across disparate and legacy systems - will be integrated into the Accenture Insights Platform (AIP). This is designed to help clients embed analytics and Artificial Intelligence into their business to generate new intelligence at speed and scale. Kamran Khan, president and CEO of Search Technologies, will lead a new Content Analytics team within Accenture Analytics.
