Bernd Schlotter, President of SoftwareONE Services, said “The adoption of public cloud continues to grow rapidly as organizations pursue ‘cloud first’ strategies, driving the demand for professional and managed services. The acquisition of Predica extends our cloud-native capabilities and complements our existing Azure Cloud Services business well as we continue to invest in our five strategic growth areas – Hyperscaler factory, Application services, SAP on cloud, FinOps and Industry vertical solutions. I could not be more impressed by Predica’s journey and efficient operating model and look forward to welcoming the entire team to SoftwareONE.”
“We are thrilled to be joining forces with SoftwareONE. Our mission has always been to help customers use Microsoft technology to achieve greater productivity and purpose. Together with SoftwareONE, we look forward to making an even bigger impact supporting organizations with their complex digital transformation requirements, while contributing our deep technical knowledge, best practices and entrepreneurial spirit,” said Andrzej Lipka, CEO and co-founder of Predica.
