ABOUT THIS COMPANY:A winning combination

Headquartered in Paris, it employs over 92,000 people through offices in 33 countries.

Capgemini was founded by Serge Kampf in 1967 as Sogeti, a boutique provider of IT services targeting only local French markets. It was too successful to maintain a low profile for long, however, and by 1975, with the acquisitions of the larger companies CAP and Gemini Computer Systems, the firm had a presence in 21 countries. Kampf toyed a bit with the corporate name, working for a while as Cap Gemini Sogeti, then opting for Cap Gemini. In 2000, the firm merged with the consulting unit of Ernst & Young and, apparently abandoning the earlier lessons of superfluous nomenclature, became Cap Gemini Ernst & Young. This was short lived, though, as a 2004 rebranding not only shortened, but compressed the name to Capgemini.
