As per reports, International Business Machines Corporation (IBM) has acquired Helsinki, Finland based cloud consulting services provider, Nordcloud, for an undisclosed amount. Founded in 2011, Nordcloud currently has a turnover of around 50 million euros with 400+ employees.
Cloud computing refers to when companies, individuals, and organizations use someone else’s computer servers to perform a task on their machine or store some data in a place that isn’t their hard drive. The acquisition will “turbocharge” its hybrid cloud consulting ability, informed IBM.
IBM faces tough competition from the likes of Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, and Google. Recently, the company has been trying to rebrand itself into cloud computing. Last year it acquired open-source software provider Red Hat for $34 billion.
John Granger, senior vice president and chief operating officer at IBM Global Business Services, stated “IBM’s acquisition of Nordcloud adds the kind of deep expertise that will drive our clients’ digital transformations as well as support the further adoption of IBM’s hybrid cloud platform.”
