Information technology services firm Sogeti, a subsidiary of Capgemini, has bought the Irish software testing group Insight Test Services.

The acquisition will double the number of Sogeti jobs in Ireland: the company now has about 140 employees who previously worked with Insight and the number is expected to rise to 200 by the end of the year.

Insight Test Services is a Dublin-based firm with an IT testing centre in Galway. It offers a number of IT- related services to more than 80 clients, including software quality assurance, testing, consulting and resourcing.

The company's founder and CEO Declan Kavanagh believes that the two firms combined create “market leadership strength for clients in the geographies served by both organizations.”

Sogeti has more than 18,000 employees in 14 countries worldwide and is part of the Capgemini Group. It provides a range of IT services to clients, including high tech consulting, systems integration, application and infrastructure services.

Sogeti Ireland CEO Michael Connolly commented on the acquisition:

“We wanted to build up our testing business. We were doing that organically, but the fastest way to do it is through acquisition. That deal means we can accelerate our plans for our testing services.”

He added: "Testing is a growing market. It's difficult to quantify the value in Ireland but we've seen exponential growth in Europe."

The financial details of the deal have not been disclosed.
