SoftwareONE makes big AWS cloud acquisition

SoftwareONE has acquired HeleCloud, a UK-headquartered Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Consulting Partner.

With the acquisition Switzerland-headquartered SoftwareONE expands and strengthens its AWS capabilities in the EMEA region, as it continues to snap up cloud service firms.

This May, SoftwareONE acquired a controlling stake in US-headquartered SynchroNet, an AWS-focused cloud specialist in digital workplace solutions.

This March, SoftwareONE acquired DACH-focused SAP services firm ITPC. And in January, SoftwareONE captured US-focused SAP specialist Optimum Consulting - which also has operations in India - and Spanish Google cloud services player Intelligence Partner, which additionally serves the Brazilian and Middle Eastern markets.

HeleCloud is the most certified AWS Premier Consulting Partner and the largest independent AWS-only system integrator and managed service provider in EMEA, said SoftwareONE.

Founded in 2016, HeleCloud serves EMEA markets from three locations in the UK, the Netherlands and Bulgaria.

Javid Khan, AWS global director of SoftwareONE, said, “With its market-leading position, this acquisition will help us further build out SoftwareONE’s cloud migration service offering - one of our strategic growth initiatives - and accelerate our growth in AWS-related services in EMEA.”

Dob Todorov, CEO and co-founder of HeleCloud, added: “SoftwareONE gives HeleCloud the opportunity to operate at scale, a benefit for our customers. It is the ideal platform for enabling customers of all sizes worldwide to benefit from cloud by using HeleCloud’s repeatable success patterns and accelerators for cloud adoption.”

HeleCloud’s current leadership team and employees will integrate into SoftwareONE’s AWS practice. The value of the deal has not been disclosed.
