Accenture acquires ATI Solutions group to enhance OT offering

Accenture has acquired ATI Solutions Group (ATI), a Perth-based consulting service provider to the mining, energy and rail industries. ATI will enhance Accenture’s capabilities in West Australia, where specialised digital and industrial talent is in high demand. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

ATI Accenture said offers clients “a broad skill set and has experience across a wide range of capital projects. It helps clients automate and remotely run mines and rail networks, set up smart maintenance workflows, analyse data from the field, and optimise their operations. The company excels at implementing operational technology (OT) – which companies use to run assets like mining equipment – and connecting OT to enterprise IT systems. Better IT and OT integration allows companies to identify issues and automate processes in their field operations faster and more efficiently.”

Steven Walsh, Industry X lead for Accenture in Australia and NZ, said: “Digital technology and automation in operations are a pivotal part of how leading asset-intensive companies drive value in their front-line operations. ATI’s long-standing expertise strengthens our capability to support our clients in these critical areas.”

Pete Burns, who leads Accenture’s business in Australia and New Zealand, added: “The acquisition of ATI reflects our ongoing focus and commitment to building our presence in the West Australian market, and delivering total enterprise reinvention to our clients.”

Matt Andrews, Director and Co-Founder, ATI, commented: “By joining Accenture, we will bring new value and scale to our clients and provide new opportunities to our people to grow their careers.”

ATI’s approximately 60 employees and contractors in Perth and other locations across Australia will join Accenture’s digital engineering and manufacturing service, Industry X. Accenture continues to build this service in Australia and New Zealand, having also acquired Perth-based OT service provider Electro 80 in 2021, and grown the team across the market in recent years. Recently, Accenture acquired US infrastructure advisory and management company Anser Advisory to help clients complete their large, long-term infrastructure projects more predictably and efficiently.
