Cloud solutions consultancy firm Cloudten has expanded its presence across Australia with the launch of two new offices in Brisbane and Melbourne.
Leading the Brisbane and Melbourne operations will be Richard Tomkinson who now takes the role of managing director after serving as the company's principal infrastructure architect for the past five years.
Cloudten told ARN it expanded its footprint within some of its largest accounts who have a national presence, leading to the launch of the new offices.
"We have also gained traction in the public sector in both Victoria and Queensland and having a local presence in each state helps us better service these customers," Tomkinson said.
The news comes four months after Cloudten was acquired by WA IT firm specialised in financial services, Transaction Solutions International (TSI) in an $8.6 million deal. Publicly-listed on the Australian Securities Exchange since 2001, TSI owns Sydney-based cyber security firm and IBM partner Decipher Works.
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.
"With our customer base expanding across state and national borders, the opening of our new offices in partnership with our sister company Decipher Works will enable us to provide our Victorian and Queensland customers with a more personal level of service," Tomkinson said.
Cloudten, who currently has five staff in Melbourne and three in Brisbane, plans to increase staff headcount in both cities over the next two years.
The company employs a total of 23 people, including two in the UK, while Decipher Works counts on 22 people.
In February, Cloudten launched operations in the UK. Prior to this, in July 2018, Cloudten was selected by the UK Government to join G-Cloud 10, a government digital marketplace for IT products and services.
