Paris, March 25, 2020 – Capgemini announced today the signing of an agreement to acquire WhiteSky Labs, one of the largest independent MuleSoft full-service consultancies in the world1, with operations across Australia and Asia.

The addition of WhiteSky Labs’ specialist and award winning expertise to our Australia and Asia operation will not only help to meet the digital transformation needs of our clients across the region, enabling them to unlock data across legacy systems, cloud apps and devices, but it will also bolster our expertise in this space that are very much in demand across the globe.
