Deloitte US has acquired BIAS Corporation, a Roswell, GA-headquartered IT consultancy focusing on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI).

Founded in 2000, BIAS helps private and public sector clients implement and operate Oracle Cloud-based infrastructure, databases, middleware, applications, analytics, and security. The firm has been an Oracle Partner since 2005 and was recently recognized as the Oracle Global and North American Partner of the Year for OCI and the Oracle SaaS Applications Partner of the Year for SMB.

BIAS has more than 350 employees across offices in the United States and India.

Deloitte’s acquisition of BIAS will bolster the firm’s existing capabilities in Oracle cloud applications and infrastructure. The move will help the Big Four firm meet increased demand for cloud migration services, including on the Oracle platform.

Oracle is a niche player in the cloud infrastructure services market, accounting for 2% of the $150-billion market, according to Synergy Research Group. AWS (32%), Azure (20%), and Google Cloud (9%) are the three largest cloud infrastructure providers.

"Leading organizations understand that having their data, systems, and applications in the cloud is an essential building block for business agility and this acquisition underscores the strategic priority Deloitte places on advancing business disruption with cloud technology," said Amit Chaudhary, cloud engineering leader at Deloitte. "Oracle Cloud infrastructure gives our clients powerful compute and networking performance while also delivering a host of infrastructure and platform cloud services.”

Deloitte’s global network announced it grew revenues by 5.5% to reach $50.2 billion in fiscal year 2021 – making it the first Big Four accounting and consulting firm to breach the $50-billion revenue mark.

"I look forward to joining my BIAS colleagues at Deloitte where we can continue to help clients achieve their business visions enabled by Oracle cloud infrastructure and applications," said Jeff Harvey, co-founder and CEO of BIAS Corporation.

Deloitte US earlier this year acquired industrial cybersecurity expert aeCyberSolutions and antifraud technology company Terbium Labs.
