As part of the lead-up to its massive involvement at Salesforce‘s Dreamforce conference, $30 billion global professional services company Accenture announced that it was acquiring Cloud Sherpas, one of the larger, more successful cloud solution providers. Cloud Sherpas was only founded a few years ago. Indeed, I remember having a conversation with the founders at Google IO back in 2008, only a year after the company’s founding. Back then it was a tiny team, and its somewhat nebulous business model was to help companies with their Google Apps deployments.
