SADA Acquires Google Cloud Partner ByteWave Digital for APAC Expansion

North America Google Cloud partner SADA, a Top 250 Public Cloud MSP, has acquired ByteWave Digital as part of a global expansion into the APAC (Asia-Pacific) market. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

This is technology M&A deal number 782 that ChannelE2E has covered so far in 2021. See all technology M&A deals for 2021 and 2020 listed here.

ByteWave Digital employs roughly 50 Google Cloud and Google Workspace technical experts, and maintains a global delivery center in Thiruvananthapuram and Pune, India. Looking ahead, ByteWave Digital will rebrand as  SADA India.

SADA had roughly 500 employees as of October 2021. SADA committed to driving $500 million in revenues for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) from 2000 to 2023. That intense Google focus inspired SADA to sell off its Microsoft business to Core BTS in 2019.
