Fujitsu Consulting to Acquire Rapidigm

Originally published February 23, 2006

Fujitsu Consulting and Rapidigm recently announced that the companies have entered into a definitive agreement whereby Fujitsu Consulting will acquire Rapidigm, a privately-held information technology consulting and integration firm with offices in 22 major metropolitan markets in the United States and offshore development centers in India.

The addition of Rapidigm will significantly increase Fujitsu's national IT consulting and integration capacity - which is focused on application development, deployment and management - and will provide incremental offshore delivery capabilities. Key skill areas for Rapidigm include Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), with practices dedicated to SAP, Oracle and PeopleSoft, business intelligence and custom application development.

"With the addition of Rapidigm, Fujitsu Consulting has now raised the bar on our ability to address evolving customer requirements with on-shore, near-shore and off-shore delivery capabilities," said John Rose, CEO of Fujitsu Consulting. "Both Rapidigm and Fujitsu Consulting have built reputations on being agile and responsive to customer needs. While we are scaling up significantly, we intend to preserve these attributes which are valued highly by our clients."
  
Once completed, this acquisition will add approximately 1200 US-based consultants in major markets through the US and another 800 India-based consultants in two developments centers. This will bring the total number of Fujitsu Consulting consultants in North America to over 4900.
