Capgemini buys IT services firm Thesys

IT consulting major Capgemini has snapped up domestic IT services firm Thesys Technologies for an undisclosed amount, an acquisition that will boost the French entity's global delivery capabilities.

Capgemini, which has a good presence in India, is a provider of consulting, technology and outsourcing services.
"The acquisition of Thesys expands Capgemini's global delivery capabilities for Temenos-enabled core banking front- to back-office solutions and product offerings...," Capgemini said in a statement.

Temenos is a widely-used banking software system developed by Geneva-based Temenos Group AG.
Without disclosing the financial details of the acquisition, Capgemini said the buyout would boost its position in the packaged core banking platform market.

Thesys Technologies offers banking implementation solutions to the global financial services industry.
According to the statement, Thesys' highly specialised service delivery infrastructure will expand the scope of Capgemini's offerings in the Middle East, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.

"Capgemini's global delivery from India is strengthened with the acquisition of Thesys, as it enables us to create value for more than 700 existing Temenos clients, as well as a large prospective client base," Capgemini India executive chairman Salil Parekh said.

BSNL is one of the lousiest of public sector companies in india. in spite of enormous technological advancements in the telecom industry, most of its personnel still have the old habits of 60's to 80's with a sick mindset! it is still a highly inefficient, indifferent company not bothered about its customers!

it spends only on products & services, and not on its lousy service!

How many PSU have shown any profit in decades?
What a shame while cell phone companies re making profit and this one is loosing but than anyone in India cares as it is a PSU
