Cloud provider Navisite acquires Chicago based SAP consulting firm


Cloud service provider Navisite has announced its acquisition of Dickinson + Associates, an SAP consulting firm based in Chicago.

The company said that Dickinson will enhance Navisite’s SAP managed cloud services portfolio with end-to-end SAP business application and platform expertise.

“Dickinson has an excellent reputation in the industry with a strong, continually growing relationship with SAP,” said Mark Clayman, CEO at Navisite.

“With this acquisition, we’ll be able to deliver greater breadth and depth of SAP services to help organisations accelerate their IT transformations, improve operations and reduce costs.

“This aligns with our broader strategy to combine the highest levels of knowledge, skills and capabilities that span all major cloud and enterprise application providers.”

With this acquisition, Navisite will expand its addressable market for managed cloud services and professional services engagements during a time when SAP customers are seeking new business outcomes and are embracing the concept of becoming an intelligent enterprise.

This acquisition also offers existing Dickinson customers opportunities for innovation as they adopt SAP cloud technologies and migrate to SAP S/4HANA, according to the company.

“By joining forces with Navisite, we will enhance our proposition and value to our customers with a significantly broadened and expanded portfolio of capabilities to help our customers take the next steps in their digital transformation journey,” said Donald Dickinson, president and founder at Dickinson + Associates.

“As organisations look to drive efficiency and business agility, particularly in today’s climate, we will be uniquely positioned to support them with proven SAP expertise and managed cloud services that span platforms and industries.”

This news follows a number of strategic acquisitions made by Navisite to expand its portfolio of digital transformation solutions.

Earlier this year, Navisite acquired Privo, an Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Partner and leading public cloud consulting firm.
