Financial consultancy Deloitte has acquired an Atlanta-based startup, ATADATA, for an undisclosed amount to expand its cloud management services and automate server orchestration for its enterprise operations business.
“Deloitte has made significant investments in the cloud space over the past year,” says Charles Wright, CEO and CTO of ATADATA. “Our team has worked tirelessly over the past four years to create the industry standard for automated workload migrations and we wanted to align ourselves with a company, like Deloitte, who understands the power of the cloud and can deliver exceptional service of our suite of technology to enterprise clients.”
ATADATA’s platform helps companies escalate across servers in a more efficient way, as well as seamlessly migrate information when needed based on operational costs or server needs. The platform can be used in any combination of private and public clouds as well as within data centers.
The ATAsphere software platform is compatible with 20 different cloud infrastructures globally; it is certified by Amazon Web Services, works on Microsoft Azure, and recommended by Google Cloud Platform. Wright says it provides enough flexibility to help migrate data quickly at any complex organization.
“Combining the power of the ATAsphere platform with Deloitte services allows clients to more rapidly and efficiently plan, build and operate innovative cloud solutions,” said Larry Calabro, principal and cloud practice leader of Deloitte Consulting LLP.
Now as part of Deloitte, Wright shares that this is the industry’s first managed Workload Mobility Platform. “Our technology is powering the digital transformation of the enterprise through a borderless automation platform for hybrid IT and cloud environments,” says Wright.
“Built from the ground up on proven, purpose-built solutions, Deloitte ATADATA is driving the future of the enterprise by enabling simple, cost-effective, scalable and rapid portability of both data and complete application stacks, finally unlocking the ability to drive the growth of topline revenue opportunities,” says Wright.
Wright will join Deloitte, along with ATADATA’s COO and co-founder Ian Easton, to oversee improvements to the platform and continue to scale to meet Deloitte’s client needs.
Throughout the acquisition deal, Wright acknowledges his team was a major factor in staying optimistic and pushing forward to make the company and the partnership with Deloitte a success.
“When you surround yourself with the brightest and best talent, and individuals who understand what it means to work as a team, there is literally nothing you can’t accomplish,” says Wright. “I am very proud that we are an Atlanta-based company solving some of the most complex problems at the enterprise level and I hope we can serve as inspiration to the many wonderful startups that our great city is producing.”
