CapGemini is one of the world's largest management and IT consulting firms. It offers its services in the management consulting, systems transformation and information systems management areas worldwide.
The company is headquartered in Paris,
France and employs about 60,000 people. The company's businesses are divided into four core areas: consulting, technology, outsourcing and local professional services. The company's clients are companies in various business sectors like financial services; healthcare; automotive; manufacturing, retail and distribution; life sciences; energy, utilities and chemicals; and telecom, media and entertainment. The company was founded in 1975 as Cap Gemini Sogeti and initiated an array of acquisitions where they acquired Sesa, French rival (in 1987); the Hoskyns Group, UK (in 1990) and expanded globally with takeover of another 22 European and US companies in the next five years (Datamonitor, 2004). Then in 2000, Cap Gemini merged with US consulting giant Ernst & Young (E&Y) to consolidate its position in North America, but due to market downturn and integration issues, it made huge losses thereafter (Figure 1).
