Founded in Dublin in 2000, DNM focuses on accelerating business transformation for its clients through technology, specifically through cloud engineering offerings and capabilities. In addition to its managed services offerings, DNM provides cloud architecture, migration, and analytics.
Both Deloitte and DNM are Premier Consulting Partners in the AWS Partner Network. DNM will join Deloitte’s consulting business, resulting in a team of more than 1,000 technology consultants. The team will provide Deloitte with increased capacity to help its clients, according to the company.
AWS is a key strategic alliance for Deloitte in Ireland and globally. As such, DNM’s credentials as an APN Premier Consulting Partner were a key factor in the acquisition, according to Deloitte.
