Founded in 2007, Inspirage is an Oracle Platinum Partner that works with clients in products-based industries, including high-tech, life sciences, manufacturing, consumer goods, retail, and oil and gas. The firm has been an Oracle Cloud/Fusion Co-Development Partner since 2012 and provides consulting and implementation across digital transformation, customer experience, product lifecycle management, supply chain management, logistics management, and ERP, among other areas.

Inspirage has 710 employees across offices in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Netherlands, UAE, India, and Malaysia.

Accenture’s acquisition of Inspirage will strengthen its supply chain capabilities within its Oracle Cloud business group. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“In a time of unprecedented disruption and supply constraints, companies need to reimagine, build, and operate supply chain networks that orchestrate change, simplify people’s lives and positively impact business, society and the planet,” said Renato Scaff, North America lead for supply chain and operations at Accenture. “With the addition of Inspirage and its deep industry and systems experience, Accenture will be even better positioned to help our clients reinvent supply chain and manufacturing through Oracle technologies.”

The deal builds on Accenture’s 2021 acquisition of Blue Horseshoe, an Indianapolis-based firm specializing in supply chain technology consulting for the Microsoft and Oracle ecosystems. The transaction added approximately 350 people across the US and Europe.

“Our people take immense satisfaction in solving the most difficult supply chain problems and making a difference for our clients and Oracle partners,” Srini Subramanian, CEO and co-founder of Inspirage, said. “Together with Accenture, we can deliver these highly specialized capabilities at scale globally, while creating new growth opportunities for our people."

Accenture is headquartered in Dublin, Ireland and has more 710,000 employees globally, with 300,000 based in India. Nearly half (47%) of Accenture’s fees come from engagements in North America, as of Q3 2022.
