Capgemini Invent acquires frog and Cambridge Consultants to boost design services
Capgemini Invent, the innovation and design part of the Capgemini Group, a global global management consultancy, has announced the acquisition of frog and Cambridge Consultants.
By adding the two teams, Invent aims to develop a new generation of products, services and experiences for sustainable business growth.
“In this transition to a low-carbon economy Capgemini will be a key player in helping organisations to fully embrace digital opportunities and continually re-invent themselves for true, long-lasting value and impact,” says Cyril Garcia, CEO of Capgemini Invent and Capgemini Group executive board member.
“Lately, we have seen that the most exciting opportunities for transformation happen at the intersection of the C-suite agenda. These increasingly convergent needs and interests are at the cross-roads of real-time marketing, enterprise transformation and intelligent industry,” he adds.
Frog provides access to a larger network of over 35 design and innovation studios around the world. For stc, a leading telecom and technology service provider, frog designed a new company-wide design language system (DLS) to inform the design of new products, such as a personalised digital platform that empowers stc customers to take control of their telecom services.
Cambridge Consultants, on the other hand, aims to unlock new levels of innovation for the Group, through the addition of its physical, digital and biological capabilities to Capgemini Invent. Recent examples of Cambridge Consultants’ work include an airborne antenna system developed for client, Stratospheric Platforms limited, to deliver affordable and fast 5G connectivity from a fleet of zero emission aircraft.
