EY buys French analytics and big data power

EY’s FRENCH ARM has acquired analytics and big data consultancy Bluestone Consulting in a bid to beef up its offering in the increasingly competitive and important market segment.

The deal is its third in France in the past two years, swelling the firm’s rank of data scientists to 130.

Andrew Embury, EY Advisory leader, EMEIA, said: “The acquisition of Bluestone Consulting comes at a crucial time as today’s organizations are becoming increasingly data driven and are looking to harness data and analytics to make better decisions and accelerate their business performance. By combining our strengths, EY will be in a stronger position to help our clients address their big, complex business issues.”

EY says it can now offer clients data analytics applications to “uncover opportunities, address challenges, improve financial and business performance, optimise production facilities and anticipate and manage risks”. EY is also looking to open up new public sector markets such health care system transformations, smart city advancement and public policy development.

Other recent EY acquisitions in the big data field, include C3 Business Solutions in Australia, Entegreat located in North America and Europe and the UK’s Seren.

Bluestone Consulting was founded in 1996 and provides data visualisation and statistical engineering techniques and expertise to businesses’ operations in the marketing, finance and risk domains.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
