Financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed. According to Mphasis, the acquisition will strengthen the company’s next-gen data strategy and help them better serve clients by turning raw data into actionable information and building relevant digital capabilities for them.

“Together with Datalytyx and its highly skilled data professionals, we believe Mphasis is distinctively positioned to further fuel our worldwide clients’ transformational projects,” Nitin Rakesh, the CEO and executive director of Mphasis, said in a statement.

Founded in 2005, Datalytyx provides artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)-backed custom data platforms analysis services, including data engineering, data science, data migration, data visualization, and more.

This was the highest number for direct deals ever registered by the company in a quarter, with new-generation services making up 73% of the total.
