Cloudten has launched operations in the UK as the newly acquired cloud specialist targets global expansion through Amazon Web Services.
Designed to capitalise on cloud adoption growth in Europe, the provider’s London-based business will be spearheaded by Malcolm Duncanson as CEO.
As reported by ARN, the consultancy firm was acquired by Transaction Solutions International (TSI) in early February, in an agreement totalling up to $8.6 million.
The UK launch follows the opening of a Singapore office in May 2018, as part of TSN’s wider international expansion plans.
“We serve an increasingly international community of customers,” Duncanson said. “With demand for cloud services growing in Europe, a London office will allow us to deliver more tailored cloud solutions to our customers and partners across Europe.”
In 2018, Cloudten was selected by the UK Government to join G-Cloud 10, the new government digital marketplace for IT products and services.
Specialising in the provision of “diverse and flexible” cloud and technology solutions, as part of G-Cloud 10, Cloudten was able to offer its cloud-based government services on an increasingly international scale.
“Cloudten brings some of the best AWS capabilities which are required by our clients in DWX, and vice versa,” added Jeffrey Lai, managing director of TSN. “Combining the expertise of both companies will also help us to strengthen our cloud and security offering.”
Headquartered in Sydney, Cloudten - an Advanced Consulting Partner of AWS - specialises in security, DevOps, big data and artificial intelligence, providing cloud solutions to enterprise customers across banking, finance, health and government sectors.
The acquisition is designed to align with TSN’s cyber security subsidiary Decipher Works, building on potential synergies within the wider suite of technologies.
