At Hewlett Packard Enterprise , we continue to strategically build a portfolio that helps our customers take advantage of digital transformation and the resulting explosion of apps and data. We are focused on helping our customers accelerate business outcomes by extracting critical insights from their data, wherever it lives, from edge to core to cloud.
The reality today is that enterprises face a hybrid IT world. Some workloads are best suited to the public cloud, some should live in a private cloud environment and others need to stay in traditional on-premises infrastructure. Finding the right mix will enable businesses to analyze data quickly, efficiently manage workloads and ultimately accelerate business outcomes by driving new business models, creating new customer and employee experiences, and improving operational performance. It’s not surprising that spending on Hybrid IT Consulting and Cloud Native Development is around $6 billion today and growing at over 18 percent (Source: McKinsey, February 2017).
HPE Pointnext provides a full spectrum of advisory, integration, migration and operational consulting services to help our customers deploy and manage workloads across their entire IT estate. To further strengthen our hybrid IT consulting capabilities and build on our recent acquisition of Cloud Technology Partners, today we are announcing our acquisition of RedPixie, a UK-based leading provider of cloud consulting, application development and migration services for enterprises looking to move workloads to public cloud.
Since its start in 2010, RedPixie’s team of business consultants, cloud architects and data scientists have been focused on understanding client challenges and designing solutions that drive digital transformation. They have helped their customers migrate legacy systems to the cloud, speed up the adoption of data analytics, and drive cost-cutting while accelerating time to market and increasing agility. Today, RedPixie has significant customer traction, with particular strength among leading financial services, insurance and healthcare companies, including KPMG, Hiscox, and Care UK.
At HPE Pointnext, we always begin by understanding our customers’ digital transformation ambitions and organizing ourselves around their desired outcomes. With this acquisition, we will continue to expand our comprehensive hybrid IT portfolio and will be even better positioned to help our customers build new digital experiences and drive better business outcomes now and into the future.
