Frank Riemensperger, Senior Country Managing Director, Accenture in ASGR (Austria, Switzerland, Germany & Russia), was quoted stating that Zielpuls stands out at designing architectures as well as operating systems for smart and connected products & services. It will be contributing to the deep expertise that Accenture has developed in this specific area and complement its previous acquisitions that include designaffairs, an award-winning strategic design consultancy, he added.

According to Andrew Smith, the Managing Director & Accenture Industry X.0 lead in ASGR, Zielpuls has begun branching out into other different areas including medical technology where software & data-driven services transform the core products. He further elaborated that Zielpuls’ engineering expertise and capable orchestration of operating systems for smart products are likely to help the company create an organization which reimagines and co-creates smart connected products & services with clients, from ideation through production.

The co-CEOs of Zielpuls – Dr. Marc Poppner and Markus Frey – will be joining Accenture as the managing directors. They are also expected to continue leading the Zielpuls team with their current management team and further back the transition of the firm to Accenture Industry X.0.

For those uninitiated, Zielpuls is the most recent of many acquisitions made by Accenture for the expansion of Accenture Industry X.0. The closure of the acquisition is conditional upon customary conditions.
