Computacenter has acquired a TeamUltra, a ServiceNow Gold Services Partner. Computacenter, a UK-based IT service provider, gains more than 60 ServiceNow implementation and ITIL-certified service management specialists.
TeamUltra will continue to operate independently but will become Computacenter's dedicated ServiceNow delivery capability and customer point of contact for managed services, professional services, products and licenses.
"The acquisition of TeamUltra by Computacenter means that we can continue our independent and agile market approach with local decision-making support while leveraging our respective expertise and complementary solutions portfolios," TeamUltra Managing Director Mike Beale said in a prepared statement.
TeamUltra Acquisition: A Closer look
The TeamUltra acquisition links ServiceNow's cloud-based service management platform with Computacenter's Next Generation Service Desk (NGSD) and Digital Workplace offering. It provides Computacenter with access to ServiceNow specialists who have handled over 600 projects and implementations.
Computacenter acquired TeamUltra "to enhance commitment to the ServiceNow platform," according to CEO Mike Norris. The TeamUltra acquisition also highlights Computacenter's commitment to digital transformation.
"Through the acquisition of TeamUltra, Computacenter can help customers on their digital transformation journey by using ServiceNow's platform and suite of solutions to enable users for success," Daniel Osterbergh, ServiceNow's area vice president of EMEA channel & alliances, said in a prepared statement.
ServiceNow IT Consulting Firms: Hot Commodities
The TeamUltra deal is part of a larger trend involving ServiceNow IT consulting firm acquisitions. Buyers in the market include:
- Accenture, which in January 2017 bought German ServiceNow pure play company solid-serVision for an undisclosed sum. Moreover, Accenture previously acquired Nashco Consulting and Cloud Sherpas, both of which possess ServiceNow expertise.
- European IT services company Atos in December 2016 purchased ServiceNow Gold Services Partner Engage ESM. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
We expect the trend to continue.
