Capgemini has acquired Lyons Consulting Group, a 300-person Salesforce Commerce Cloud, SAP Hybris and Magento partner. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Lyons (Chicago, Illinois) focuses on digital business transformation services in North America. Lyons clientele includes GoPro, Titleist/FootJoy, Timex, Charlotte Russe, Vince, and Bayou Steel.

The M&A deal aligns with another recent Capgemini acquisition -- Itelios, a European Salesforce Commerce Cloud solutions provider.

Even Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff praised the deal. "Capgemini is a leading partner of Salesforce and we are thrilled to see them expand their Salesforce Commerce Cloud expertise with the addition of LYONSCG," Benioff said in a prepared statement.

Salesforce is one piece of the larger Capgemini Group digital and cloud strategy, which now represents 35 percent of company revenue.

"At LYONSCG we live, eat and breathe commerce... Joining the Capgemini family will enable us to strengthen and expand our services for clients around the world," Lyons CEO Rich Lyons said.

The deal is expected to close in the next few weeks.
