Olikka has 50 employees on its payroll, including a robust team of certified professionals with extensive experience in AWS and other cloud platforms. The company is an AWS Advanced Consulting Partner. Its Microsoft Azure capabilities are well-known in Australia and New Zealand. “Olikka’s extensive experience with AWS and Azure, coupled with their strong cloud-native capabilities in high demand areas such as application modernization and security, means we can go straight to the heart of our clients’ most pressing challenges and fully deliver value,” said KarthikNarain, global lead for Accenture Cloud First.

With the addition of Olikka, Accenture will reinforce its position as a leading AWS and Microsoft Azure cloud partner in the Australia-New Zealand market. Accenture has made quite a few strategic investments in the Asia-Pacific region this year.
