Data analytics Media News North America Technology

FRANCE – Capgemini has launched a global division focused on digital innovation and consulting, ‘Capgemini Invent’.

The unit will merge Capgemini’s consulting arm with the company’s technology and data science expertise. It will also draw on recent acquisitions made by the group – engagement firm LiquidHub, innovation consultancy Fahrenheit 212 and design agencies Idean, Adaptive Lab and Backelite.

6,000 of Capgemini’s staff globally will work on the new offer, which the company says has been launched in response to client demand for its digital services. Capgemini says the division will help clients overhaul their core businesses, implementing new processes, products and services.

Capgemini Invent will be led by Cyril Garcia, who heads up Capgemini Consulting globally. 

Paul Hermelin, chairman and chief executive of Capgemini, said: “This integrated global business line combines our specialist capabilities and expertise that are needed to design, create and trial new digital solutions and business models of the future, supported by the recognised strengths of the group to implement them at speed and scale.”

The line will consist of six practices: insight-driven enterprise; innovation and strategy; customer engagement; future of technology; operations transformation and people and organisation.
