Accenture Federal Services (AFS) has acquired Agilex, a provider of digital services for the US federal government.
The deal, announced on Monday, will "enhance Accenture's digital capabilities in analytics, cloud and mobility for federal agencies," according to the company.
Financial details were not disclosed.
Agilex develops solutions for the evolving IT requirements of US federal agencies. The privately-held company serves a number of agencies, including the Departments of Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security and Commerce.
David Moskovitz, CEO of Accenture Federal Services commented:
"Acquiring Agilex will help AFS further solidify our position as an innovative leader in the federal market. Combining our digital capabilities and agile methods will accelerate our ability to help clients harness the power of emerging digital technologies and rapid, predictable systems deployment for the federal government's most complex challenges."
Agilex Vice Chairman and co-founder Jay Nussbaum says that by joining Accenture, the company will be able to scale its capabilities and have an "even bigger impact across government."
Arlington, Va.-based AFS, a subsidiary of Accenture, has served 30 of the largest US federal organizations with clients at defense, intelligence, public safety, civilian and military health organizations.
