On a mission to expand Accenture’s Cloud First capabilities through Latin America and globally, Accenture has acquired Tenbu, a cloud data firm that specialises in solutions for intelligent decision-making and planning through areas such as analytics, big data and machine learning.
This marks the 11th acquisition with headquarters in Latin America that Accenture has made in the past five years, including Organize Cloud Labs in Brazil as well as Wolox and Ergo in Argentina, among others.
"Our goal is to help clients with total enterprise reinvention by building their digital core, optimising operations and accelerating growth – and cloud data and AI are fundamental to a strong digital core. Adding the Tenbu team will expand our capabilities to help companies drive new services, growth and resilience using data from across the cloud continuum for intelligent decision-making,” said Karthik Narain, global lead for Accenture Cloud First.
Helping clients on their digital transformation journey
Digital transformation requires cloud at scale, and according to Gartner worldwide end-user spending on public cloud services is forecast to grow 20.4% in 2022 to total US$494.7bn, up from US$410.9bn in 2021. In 2023, end-user spending is expected to reach nearly US$600bn.
With more than 150 certifications, Tenbu’s team of 170 data specialists will join the Data & AI team within Accenture Cloud First.
Accenture Cloud First is a multi-service group of cloud professionals with the singular focus of enabling organisations to move to the cloud with greater speed and achieve greater value for all their stakeholders at this critical time.

The Tenbu team brings vast data and AI specialists to draw up clear priorities and help keep different parts of our clients’ organisations aligned to achieve specific business outcomes,” said Paulo Ossamu, who leads Accenture Technology in Latin America.
