Capgemini is combining the engineering and R&D services of Altran with its digital manufacturing expertise under a new brand.
Capgemini Engineering consolidates Altran’s expertise in engineering and safety critical hardware and software following the acquisition last year.
Capgemini Engineering will be led by William Rozé, CEO and a member of the Group Executive Committee. “R&D is the new battlefield. It must be connected and data-driven to optimize innovation and accelerate development," said Rozé. "Capgemini Engineering’s services have been devised to address exactly that need, to harness the power of data to foster innovation, create new customer experiences and deliver new sources of value.”
The global business has 52,000 engineers and scientists and a presence in all major engineering hubs across the world covering product and systems engineering; digital and software engineering; and industrial operations.
“Today’s leading organizations understand that Engineering and R&D is fast-moving and ever evolving. As a result an end-to-end partnership with clients is needed for developing, launching, managing and modernizing breakthrough products,” said Aiman Ezzat, CEO of the Capgemini Group. “The launch of Capgemini Engineering builds on the integration of Altran’s capabilities into the Group, a year on from its acquisition. It perfectly complements the Group’s already well-established portfolio of business offerings and supports our leadership position in intelligent industry.”
“We work with Capgemini Engineering to develop the first transportation breakthrough in a century and we value their top-tier engineering expertise in aerospace, aeronautics, and systems engineering. They provide us with a broad range of high-end services in mechanical and physical engineering, systems architecture, software development, as well as project management” said Andres De Leon, CEO of Capgemini customer HyperloopTT.
