InfoVista acquires Ipanema Technologies
Network optimisation and service assurance firm InfoVista has acquired French network performance company Ipanema Technologies for an undisclosed sum.
InfoVista provides network planning, service assurance and optimisation solutions for more than 600 global CSPs, mobile operators and IT-intensive enterprises, and the acquisition of Ipanema is part of InfoVista’s strategy to orchestrate network and application performance.
“With this acquisition, InfoVista extends its capabilities with Software-Defined WAN to maximise business application experience over the hybrid network,” said Philippe Ozanian, InfoVista CEO.
“Both Ipanema and InfoVista strongly share the conviction that CSPs must play the leading role in helping enterprises make the most of the new hybrid network and hybrid cloud paradigm. The two companies have also established a proven and successful technology partnership for several years.”
Ipanema’s solutions are used by more than 700 global enterprises as well as Tier-1 CSPs to enable the digital transformation of their corporate customers.
Jim Darragh, CEO at Ipanema Technologies, described the company as a disruptive player in the industry.
“Its vision of business-centric application performance management through all-in-one, objective-based and fully automated solutions is becoming a must-have,” he said.
The merged companies are expected to provide enterprise customers with visibility and understanding of application behaviour across the entire service delivery chain, enabling CIOs to make data-driven network investment decisions and maximise internet connectivity ROI.
“This acquisition will accelerate our vision and current business momentum, as most CIOs are engaged in the digital transformation of their enterprises,” Darragh added.
“It is also a natural fit, as both companies share the same values and passion for customer satisfaction and innovation.”
