Global management consulting firm McKinsey & Company announced today that it has acquired data engineering firm Caserta. McKinsey says the acquisition will further strengthen its data capabilities to strengthen the company’s business strategy and data design, as well as enable it to become a top technology partner for its customers.
“We are on a journey to become the world’s leading technology impact partner,” said Aamer Baig, McKinsey’s senior partner and North American leader of McKinsey Technology. “This acquisition creates a significant opportunity to help customers overcome the challenges of building a competitive, industry-leading data environment.”
McKinsey began working with Caserta over a decade ago during the development of its internal knowledge management platform. Another collaboration took place years later, when a McKinsey client hired Caserta to move his data assets to the cloud. In the last year, McKinsey has teamed up with Caserta once again to launch a new data analysis software for the financial services market. McKinsey notes that “Within weeks, Caserta mobilized improvements in the performance and stability of their cloud-based data infrastructure, improved the pace at which new features could be launched, and began guiding and developing the customer’s engineering team.”
Caserta was founded in 2001 by Joe Caserta, whom McKinsey calls a pioneer in data engineering and who has built and implemented data architectures for many Fortune 100 companies.
“When we set up Caserta, McKinsey was the model we used to stay focused on the positive impact on our customers’ goals,” says Joe. “There is nothing more exciting as a CEO of a technology consulting firm than building a business around solving unique complex issues, having our teams fully immersed in the issues that matter, and building creative, win-win and actionable solutions to launch our customers.” to success. ”
McKinsey says the two companies are “well-suited” to their complementary skills, and the company appreciates Caserta’s “own way of linking business needs to custom data architecture projects” to meet data engineering challenges.
“Caserta’s teams want to work on challenging, cutting-edge issues and want their work to have an impact on their businesses and employees, especially through capacity building,” said Kayvaun Rowshankish, McKinsey’s lead partner and global co-leader. company’s. the company’s data transformation practice. “Unlike many other data engineering stores that tend to want to create code and get out, Caserta focuses more on the long-term impact. This is in line with our values, which makes it an indisputable fit. “
McKinsey has hired Caserta’s data engineers, data architects and data strategists, a team of nearly 50.
“Caserta is improving the way we work with our clients on data strategy and design. They strengthen our ability to deliver end-to-end data transformation, bringing innovative, accelerating and talented approaches to deploying enterprise-wide cloud data architectures, all of which are critical to the digital and analytical development of our customers. ” said McKinsey in today’s document. ad.
