SoftwareONE Acquires InterGrupo: Strategic Importance
Dieter Schlosser, CEO at SoftwareONE, said:
“This acquisition highlights the strategic importance of a global practice in application modernization with hyperscalers, such as AWS, Google and Microsoft. This helps our 65,000 customers on their journey to the cloud not only from an infrastructure point of view, but also regarding their existing applications. The technology, agility, and efficiency gains of the cloud can only be realized if applications are re-engineered. DevOps in the cloud is a priority for all hyperscalers, particularly for AWS. They have the goal of transforming millions of applications to their platforms over the coming years, with the help of partners such as SoftwareONE.”
Darío Solórzano, founder of InterGrupo, commented:
“The last few months have proven how InterGrupo and SoftwareONE can mutually benefit from each other and I am excited to herald a new era. I am certain that being an integral part of SoftwareONE will benefit our employees and more so allow us to empower our customers worldwide for their digital transformation, through innovative technologies, extending from cognitive computing, blockchain, IoT, advanced analytics to cloud.”
