Accenture (ACN) Tuesday said it has entered into an agreement to acquire Cloud Sherpas, a leader in cloud advisory and technology services specializing in Google, Salesforce and ServiceNow. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The move will further strengthen Accenture's position as the leading enterprise cloud services provider. It will also enhance its ability to provide clients with unparalleled cloud strategy, technology consulting, and cloud application implementation, integration and management services.

Following the completion of the acquisition, more than 1,100 professionals from Cloud Sherpas are expected to join the newly created Accenture Cloud First Applications team.

This team will deliver cloud services for Google, NetSuite, Salesforce, ServiceNow, Workday and other "pure play" technologies.

Combining with Cloud Sherpas will further expand Accenture's ability to create differentiated cloud services across leading and emerging application platforms.
