Capgemini is seeking to increase its presence in the U.S. healthcare market. The French technology firm’s CEO Paul Hermelin has reportedly stated the company is searching for acquisitions in order to earn a spot in the top 10 IT services companies in the U.S.
“We are a marginal player in several of the key markets,” Hermelin reportedly told the Financial Times. “For instance, we are nonexistent in healthcare in the U.S., which I think is a mistake. So we need acquisitions.”
A U.S. acquisition could mean strong business for Capgemini. With the healthcare sector moving toward electronic patient records as it becomes more IT dependant, the company has the potential to see great success within the market. The move would follow Capgemini’s acquisition of Chinese IT services provider Praxis Technology last week and the September 2010 acquisition of Brazilian IT services company CPM Braxis.
