Infogain acquires cloud, IoT solutions provider Silicus
Silicon Valley-headquartered IT services firm Infogain Corporation, which also has operations in India, has acquired Houston-based software firm Silicus Technologies as it looks to scale its service offerings in cloud and internet of things (IoT), it said in a statement on Tuesday.
Microsoft Azure partner Silicus provides services to over a dozen billion-dollar companies in the United States, the statement added.
“The acquisition expands Infogain’s capabilities to deliver digital transformation services and reinforces our position as a leading digital innovator in the Microsoft Azure ecosystem,” CEO Sunil Bhatia said in the statement.
Infogain will now deliver solutions from edge to cloud for clients in the hi-tech, travel & hospitality, retail and insurance industries, he added.
Silicus has 500 employees in Houston and about 450 based out of Pune. They will be joining Infogain's 4,000 and more workforce spread across the globe, bringing the total headcount tally at Infogain close to 5,000 post-acquisition.
Infogain has offices in California, Washington, Texas, London, Dubai, India and Singapore with delivery centres in Austin, New Delhi, Bangalore, Pune, and Mumbai.
In May this year, ChrysCapital-backed Infogain signed a deal to provide robotic process automation (RPA) solutions to a Japanese consumer products company to set up an RPA centre of excellence and automate certain business processes.
