Plaisir Informatique employs 30 people and, since its inception in 1983, has developed competencies and data migration software tools.
Capgemini is planning on bringing its new data migration solution to the French banking and insurance market, as well as to other sectors such as pensions and industry. Capgemini will also leverage Plaisir Informatique’s know-how with the development of a center of expertise to data migration in India in order to serve other markets.
Emile Baux, founder of Plaisir Informatique, said: “Our company has been built around the IT systems merger strategy of our health insurance company clients. Joining a global leader will enable us to fully leverage our know-how and our experience to target new sectors.”
Olivier Henaff, executive director of Capgemini Financial Services France, said: “Following the work we carried out together in 2001, this acquisition perfectly fits in with our desire to accompany large financial institutions throughout the entire value chain.”
Will Capgemini benefit from this acquisition?
