“Today’s organizations need to concurrently evolve their business models, research and development processes, ecosystems, and products by leveraging cloud-native technologies and embracing progressive product engineering methods,” said Kevin Prendeville, principal and product engineering services leader for Deloitte. “With Dextra Technologies, we’re building on Deloitte Consulting’s market-leading product engineering transformation capabilities to now offer an even broader range of services to accelerate our clients’ business goals.”

The acquisition marks the second time in less than a year that Dextra has changed hands, having previously been acquired by CI&T Software, a global digital transformation company that is publicly traded on the NYSE, in July 2021.

The move comes little more than a year after Deloitte’s acquisition of HashedIn Technologies Private Limited, a leading cloud native software engineering and product development business. The firm acquired other product development companies over the course of 2021, including The Working Group and Sentek Consulting, as it continues to expand its ability to serve clients seeking to rapidly develop and deploy disruptive, innovative solutions.

As businesses look for new ways to streamline product development and reduce time to market, Deloitte’s string of acquisitions in the product development space stands to provide the firm and its clients with strong support to deliver market-leading products and solutions.
