KPMG adds more IT capabilities

Business consultancy KPMG has added strength to its IT advisory services through the acquisition of UK consultancy Xantus.

Xantus focuses on advising the UK CIO community and will add to KPMG's IT capabilities in a sector where consolidation is creating one-stop IT consultancies.

In February, KPMG completed the acquisition of Equaterra, which provides advice to CEOs when outsourcing IT.

Earlier this year, Robert Morgan, director at sourcing broker Burnt-Oak Partners, told Computer Weekly that there will be a battle between the big consultancies to become one-stop shops. "The global challenge now is between Deloitte, TPI and KPMG."

In January, US owner of sourcing consultancy TPI acquired Compass Management Consulting to increase the transformational services it can offer. TPI parent Information Services Group said the acquisition will now offer customers benchmarking services as well as sourcing advice. Compass is a consultancy that specialises in IT and business benchmarking; TPI advises businesses on what outsourcing contracts to sign.
