Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) on Tuesday announced that it has acquired the UK-based cloud consulting firm RedPixie, to enhance its hybrid IT consulting capabilities and help customers seamlessly deploy and manage workloads across different environments.
The acquisition will strengthen HPE Pointnext’s professional services. HPE Pointnext is an IT services organization at HPE that offers a set of advisory, migration, integration and operation consulting services to make hybrid IT simple and power the intelligent edge.
RedPixie provides cloud consulting, application development and migration services to companies moving their workloads to cloud. It can handle traditional consulting projects, and has a particular focus on cloud-based data science.
Founded in 2010, RedPixie also helps enterprises to build and manage Azure hybrid cloud solutions, including Azure analytics, machine learning and connected devices.
HPE had acquired another cloud consultancy named Cloud Technology Partners (CTP) in September last year at an undisclosed amount. HPE is looking to grab major opportunities in the Hybrid IT consulting and cloud native development market, which has already reached around $6 billion.
With the acquisition of RedPixie, HPE expanded its hybrid IT portfolio to better serve the customers, help them build new digital solutions, and drive the organizational growth.
“Some workloads are best suited to the public cloud, some should live in a private cloud environment and others need to stay in traditional on-premises infrastructure. Finding the right mix will enable businesses to analyze data quickly, efficiently manage workloads and ultimately accelerate business outcomes by driving new business models, creating new customer and employee experiences, and improving operational performance,” wrote Ana Pinczuk, SVP and GM, HPE Pointnext, in a blog post.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
