Arlington, VA-based Accenture Federal Services (AFS) completed its acquisition of Agilex Technologies, Inc. (Agilex), a provider of digital solutions for the U.S. federal government, on March 26. The acquisition is expected to enhance Accenture’s digital capabilities in analytics, cloud and mobility for federal agencies, according to Accenture.
The acquisition, first announced on February 9, 2015, advances AFS’s ability to help clients harness the power of emerging digital technologies and enable rapid, predictable systems deployment for the federal government’s most complex challenges.
“Digital technologies are fundamentally changing the way that government organizations operate and interact with citizens, patients, employees, suppliers, partners and other stakeholders,” said David Moskovitz, Accenture Federal Services chief executive. “Combining the Agilex and AFS digital capabilities and agile methods accelerates our ability to help our federal clients make the digital transformation journey and improve services and outcomes.”
Agilex brings to Accenture its unique mission focus and understanding of IT requirements of federal agencies. The company currently serves a number of federal departments and independent agencies, such as the Departments of Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security and Commerce. Formerly a privately-held company, Agilex was recently named a 2014 Greater Washington Government Contractor of the Year.
Accenture’s federal business has served every cabinet-level department and 30 of the largest federal organizations with clients at defense, intelligence, public safety, civilian and military health organizations.
