Kearney has deepened its ecosystem of digital partners with Nortal, a 1,000 strong company specialised in developing and building solutions for public and private sector institutions.

The partnership between the two companies has been engineered by Kearney’s Middle East practice, which will collaborate with Nortal’s teams in Dubai and Oman to deliver “end-to-end strategic technology services” to clients, said Rob Van Dale, partner and Digital Transformation leader at Kearney.

A global management consulting firm with over 4,200 staff in 40+ countries, Kearney helps clients with strategic, organisational and business-focused technology work. To provide for a rounded offering in the digital space, the consultancy forges alliances with all kinds of technology houses, from the likes of giants such as AWS and Salesforce to more specialised players such as Nortal.

“It is critical that our clients have access to the most cutting edge and responsive technology that the market has to offer, and we are constantly on the look-out for partners, both globally, and in the region, to bring this to life. We are excited to be partnering with Nortal who have demonstrated remarkable results in digitalising services and delivering impact for governments and businesses across the world,” explained Van Dale.

Founded in 2000, Nortal has grown big thanks to its pioneering role in helping the Estonian government become one of the most advanced e-governments in the world. The company has since diversified to other sectors, such as healthcare and the private sector, where it serves among others Fortune 500 companies.

In the Middle East, the focus will be on the government sector, one of Kearney’s main industry verticals. Kearney works for top officials across the region, is a partner of the World Government Summit (the Middle East’s counterpart of the World Economic Forum) and was recently recognised as one of the top government consulting firms.

In serving the market, Kearney and Nortal will work “on a case-by-case basis to ensure that clients receive solutions catering to their specific organisational needs,” said Van Dale. “Digital transformation looks different for every government. We’re confident that our joint capabilities will optimise our clients’ ways of working, and drive growth and innovation across industries.”

Taavi Einaste, the CEO of Nortal in the Middle East, commented: “We are thrilled to work together with Kearney to accelerate digitalisation and to continue to deliver the future, seamlessly.”

Last year, the region’s consulting industry saw another tie-up between a global group and an Estonian-origin player, when PwC inked a partnership with Cybernetica.
