Sydney, 6 April 2021 - Fujitsu Australia today announced the acquisition of data analytics specialist management consultancy, Versor, which took effect on Thursday, 1 April 2021.
Versor is the first acquisition for Fujitsu Australia since 2009 and aligns with Fujitsu’s mission to achieve human-centric technology growth through digital transformation. The acquisition not only demonstrates Fujitsu’s commitment to investing in its growth in the Australian market but exemplifies a key element of its global strategy to address the growing demand for advanced data science consulting services through strategic acquisitions.
Versor provides data engineering, advanced analytics and data sciences services powered by artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, which is a core capability of its digital transformation consulting services. Versor has clients across the public sector, mining, retail, health, utilities, financial services, and entertainment industries. Within its six years of operations, Versor has achieved more than 90 industry certifications.
Versor will operate as a Fujitsu company under the continued leadership of Dougall McBurnie. The data engineering, advanced analytics, and data science capability of Versor will compliment Fujitsu’s industry-led solutions for customers, and Fujitsu’s existing strategic alliances with Microsoft and AWS.
Graeme Beardsell, Chief Executive Officer, Fujitsu Australia, said, ‘By acquiring Versor, Fujitsu Australia brings additional specialist data capabilities to customers and strategic alliances. Versor’s experienced team of data scientists and data engineers will strongly compliment Fujitsu’s existing teams.
‘Fujitsu considers this a strategic acquisition considering the growing demand for advanced data consulting expertise, which is now crucial for many organisations. The Versor acquisition positions Fujitsu as a leader in the advanced data consulting industry.'
‘Fujitsu specifically chose Versor because of the company’s alignment with Fujitsu’s products, services and corporate culture. Fujitsu is proud to be investing further in Australia and providing new career development opportunities for Versor employees.’
Dougall McBurnie, Managing Director, Versor, said, ‘Versor and Fujitsu are strongly aligned in terms of organisational integrity and culture, so this acquisition makes sense strategically and culturally. We are bringing new capability and Versor will retain its identity as a new division of Fujitsu. The acquisition provides career opportunities for Versor’s people and growth opportunities for the Versor business. We look forward to bringing to Fujitsu our highly skilled team of data and analytics consultants who will support new levels of innovation for Fujitsu customers and strategic alliance stakeholders.’
The acquisition involves a plan to transition all Versor employees across to Fujitsu over the coming months.
