Professional services network EY has acquired Australia-based data and analytics firm Bridge Business Consulting for an undisclosed sum.
Bridge originally focused on helping clients across consumer, retail, financial services, utilities and telecoms industries achieve business growth, but has transitioned to offer data and analytics services spanning the value chain, including data strategy, engineering, analytics, AI and data management.
Following the buy, Bridge will expand EY's Data & Analytics practice, with twenty data and analytics professionals all joining Ernst & Young Australia, alongside Managing Partners Robert Mazevski and John Desmond.
Steve Bingham, EY Technology Consulting Leader for the Asia-Pacific region, said: 'This important acquisition helps move us closer to our ambition to become the world's leading transformation consultants, trusted to help EY clients realise long-term value through the impact of people, technology and innovation. Data & Analytics is a huge growth area for us in the Asia-Pacific region, and the acquisition of Bridge will assist us in strengthening our practice and moving us towards our desired strategic position in the market'.
