Consultancy firm Servian has signed a one-year partnership with collaboration software provider IXUP to offer the vendor's encrypted data collaboration platform.
The partnership will see Servian offer its clients, which include big names such as NBN Co, ANZ Bank, Virgin Airlines, Coles, Accor Group and Telstra, a secure data analytics environment, powered by IXUP’s technology.
In return, Sydney-headquartered IXUP will gain immediate access to Servian’s client base in the data analytics space, which the company described as having a significant effect on its growth strategy.
Under the terms of the deal, Servian will share gross revenue with the publicly-listed company.
Founded in 2007, Servian has more than 350 people based across six Australian cities, plus bases in Auckland and Bangalore.
Specialising in providing cloud-first data consultancy for businesses and government bodies, the company works with vendors such as Google Cloud Platform, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and OpenStack.
"Helping organisations leverage data for their competitive advantage is core to Servian's mission,” Servian CEO Tony Nicoll said. “Our clients want to access third-party data to optimise their business, improve customer experience and grow their market presence.
“The IXUP Platform allows us to enhance levels of trust and security when integrating and utilising third-party data,” Nicoll added.
Founded in 2011, IXUP provides technology to enable organisations to collaborate using multiple sources of data in an encrypted environment.
The company recently hired Data61’s Peter Leihn as its new CEO. A veteran of both Hewlett Packard and Autodesk, Leihn took over from co-founder and chairman Tim Ebbeck, who was acting CEO at the time, last month.
“IXUP is focused on enabling superior data analytics and this partnership allows organisations to gain rich insights from their valuable data,” Leihn said.
“We are very pleased that Servian has recognised IXUP as an outstanding solution for achieving its clients’ data exchange needs. We look forward to working with Servian as it takes this service to its clients.”
IXUP became publicly-listed on the Australian Securities Exchange last year after raising $12.5 million in an initial public offering (IPO).
