EY US has acquired Tallan, a Hartford, CT-based IT consultancy focusing on Microsoft Azure solutions.

Founded in 1985, Tallan creates custom Microsoft-powered solutions for clients in manufacturing, consumer packaged goods, pharma, healthcare, and state and local government. The firm’s offerings include application modernization, e-commerce and web development, user experience, mobile platforms, cloud services, and AI and machine learning.

Tallan also offers its Legislative Management Suite focused on helping state legislatures modernize legacy paper-based processes.

The firm has 83 employees listed on LinkedIn and holds nine Gold competencies in Microsoft technologies.

EY’s acquisition of Tallan will deepen the existing capabilities of its Microsoft services group and expand the range of solutions offered, the Big Four firm said in a press release.

“Our clients are very focused on digital transformation, growth, and leveraging the cloud,” said Sonya Lehmann, EY Americas Microsoft services group leader. “The core skills that Tallan brings in native cloud development, data science, and AI, along with its Microsoft Azure experience, will significantly contribute to delivering transformative cloud solutions to help solve our clients’ toughest business issues.”

EY’s Microsoft practice provides consulting across Azure cloud strategy and transformation, data and AI, Dynamics 365 and Power Platform, Microsoft 365, cybersecurity, and internet of things.

“We see great need among our clients for application modernization and data analytics solutions to meet their digital transformation ambitions,” said Craig Branning, CEO of Tallan. “Joining the EY team is an amazing opportunity to expand the services we offer our clients on the Microsoft technology stack.”

EY US last year bought Cambria Solutions, a Sacramento, CA-based consulting firm focusing on state and local government clients.

EY is preparing to put the global split of its audit and consulting businesses to a partner vote in April. The division is being driven by regulatory pressure and the projected unhindered growth of independent audit and consulting companies.
