NTT Data Services, a Plano-based leader in global technology services, has agreed to buy Flux7, an IT services firm that has been on the Inc. 5000 list for three consecutive years.
Austin-headquartered Flux7, an Amazon Web Services Premier Consulting Partner, provides cloud implementation and migration, automation, and DevOps consulting services for enterprises. It has experience in the financial services, pharmaceuticals, software, manufacturing, and retail industries. No financial details of the acquisition were released.
“The acquisition of Flux7 will enhance the value we can deliver in AWS, DevOps, and Agile development capabilities, while aligning with our focus to drive digital services for our clients,” Bob Pryor, CEO, NTT Data Services, said in a statement. “With an excellent brand, industry recognition and impressive client base, as well as a strong record of growth, Flux7 is a strategic fit for our business and part of our ongoing strategy of growth through acquisition.”
NTT Data Services is a division of NTT Data Corp., a Japan-based top 10 global business and IT services provider with more than 120,000 professionals in more than 50 countries, and NTT, a partner to more than 85 percent of the Fortune 100.
NTT Data Services previously announced the acquisitions of Sierra Systems Group Inc. and Cognosante Consulting LLC.
The Plano company said that with its most recent acquisition, it will add a team of highly specialized experts, as well as scalable, proprietary DevOps intellectual property from Flux7. DevOps is a type of relationship between development and IT operations that’s aimed at changing and improving the relationship between the two business units.
Flux7 said it brings an application-centric approach to cloud implementation projects with a focus on DevOps, Agile application development, and migration.
When coupled with NTT Data Services’ established cloud life-cycle expertise, Flux7’s consulting and implementation capabilities will extend its strength in public cloud to deliver clients the benefits of the AWS platform. Aater Suleman, co-founder and CEO of Flux7, said the new opportunity will allow Flux7 and its clients to take advantage of NTT Data’s portfolio and resources, along with its expertise as a top 10 global IT services provider.
“Access to NTT’s global R&D, applications, infrastructure, and investments in digital transformation and innovation will also enable us to leverage complementary resources that accelerate modernization initiatives for our clients and bring improvements to our employee culture,” said Suleman, who will continue to lead Flux7’s day-to-day operations as part of NTT Data.
NTT DATA said that the deal is expected to close by Dec. 31.
