Continuing its M&A campaign in 2021, Atos has acquired Cloudreach, a London-headquartered international cloud services company with more than 600 employees.

“The acquisition of Cloudreach has strong synergetic potential with the existing Atos expertise in cloud, notably in Europe,” said Adrian Gregory, the current co-CEO of Atos (per January 2022, Rodolphe Belmer will be installed as CEO).

Founded in 2009, Cloudreach specialises in helping organisations with cloud application development and cloud migration services. The company is a Premier Consulting Partner of Amazon Web Services, a Microsoft Azure Expert Managed Services Provider, and a Google Cloud Premier Partner as well as a Google Cloud Security Partner.

The firm’s 600 employees (revenue: circa €100 million) hold a combined 1,000 certifications across the Amazon, Microsoft and Google technology stacks.

As part of the integration, Cloudreach’s employees in the UK, US, Canada, the Netherlands, Germany, France, Switzerland and India will join Atos. “Through this acquisition, we deepen our cloud-driven strengths in consulting, transforming and building digital solutions for customers,” said Gregory.

Meanwhile, for Cloudreach, the deal will enable its team to “extend its excellence into North America and other regions where Atos is present,” Gregory added. Across the globe, €11 billion IT services giant Atos has over 107,000 employees in 70+ countries.

Brooks Bocherding, the CEO of Cloudreach, commented: “We are excited to take Cloudreach on the next step of its mission to deliver the promise of cloud and drive extraordinary value for our customers. Atos offers an impressive global platform of technology assets and deep expertise enabling clients to drive digital capabilities at an entirely new scale and speed, while providing our people with exciting new challenges and career growth.”

The bolt-on lifts Atos’ number of acquisitions in 2021 to ten. Yesterday the company confirmed the purchase of AppCentrica in Canada, and in the UK, the firm bought software provider Ipsotek in April.
