Capgemini recognizes that an investment in the leading-edge business analytic tools that BICG supports, will help clients gain real business value through a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of their business trends and performance, with a service offering portfolio that addresses their entire information lifecycle, ” he added. “We look forward to working with the BICG team to bring these additional Oracle technologies to our clients.”
