Accenture yesterday announced it has acquired Northstream, a Stockholm-based consultancy to communications service providers (CSPs) and networking services vendors.
Founded in Stockholm in 1998, Northstream works at the intersection of business and mobile technologies, helping CSPs identify emerging industry shifts, adapt to market changes, and capitalize on new business and technology opportunities.
Accenture says Northstream helps clients develop new, innovative business models.
According to Accenture, the acquisition will expand Accenture’s capabilities in the Nordic region to address CSP demand for network consulting programs around 5G deployment and IoT connectivity, as well as large transformational programs that may include telco network cloud deployments and operating model transformations.
Northstream has approximately 30 professionals that will join Accenture’s Communications, Media & Technology (CMT) operating group.
