Accenture has acquired End-to-End Analytics, a Palo Alto, California-based data and analytics consulting firm. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Founded in 2005, End-to-End Analytics supports clients with the development of data and analytics strategy, applying optimization and artificial intelligence on a range of technology platforms. The consulting firm helps companies across high tech, retail, consumer, automotive & industrial, and financial services improve their processes, decision-making, and performance in supply chain, sales & marketing, pricing & promotion, human resources, and data science.

The firm endeavors to engage its clients with data and models to help draw insights, with data visualization playing a key role. This helps clients better understand the “why” as much as the final recommendations, the company says.
