Deloitte acquires Cloud Solutions Group

Builds on its technology practice

Deloitte Australia has purchased systems integrator and Cloud consulting firm, Cloud Solutions Group (CSG).

Cloud Solutions Group CEO, Josh Rubens, will become a Deloitte partner with other directors and staff joining Deloitte in Melbourne.

“Deloitte’s brand, scale and breadth of services provide access to a broader set of offerings and value for our clients, as well as opportunities for career advancement for our staff and increased potential to grow their careers,” Rubens said.

Deloitte technology consulting partner, Kevin Russo, said it was an important transaction that will build its technology practice.

“The transaction with CSG confirms the rapid growth of Cloud technologies and how effective CSG has been at disrupting the market,” Russo said.

“It enables us to build on our current model for Cloud and infrastructure advisory services, to include implementation and managed Cloud-based solutions.

“This is an innovative step for our technology practice. We can now offer our clients business driven technology solutions, hosted on next generation hybrid cloud services. It also supports our application modernisation offering, allowing us to assist clients at all levels of the technology stack.”

CSG maintains partnerships with companies such as Amazon, NEXTDC and Nimble Storage, VMware, EMC, Citrix, IBM and HP.

Deloitte Australia CEO, Cindy Hook, said it will continue to make strategic investments. It has been building its technology consulting portfolio through acquisitions of companies such as Dataweave and Qubit.

“Integrating technology-based solutions with the quality, custom-designed experiences clients now want, is fundamental to future business success,” Hook said.

“We will continue to make considered, strategic investments that are adjacent to our capabilities and better enable our private and public sector clients to respond to the rapid changes affecting their markets and customers.”
