Paris, December 1, 2021 – Capgemini announced today, following the fulfillment of all regulatory requirements, the completion of the acquisition of VariQ. The provider of Software Development, Cybersecurity, and Cloud services for federal government departments and agencies across the United States, will be integrated into Capgemini Government Solutions LLC, Capgemini’s independent operating division working with U.S. government agencies.
