Telstra acquires Readify for cloud, big data, IoT software
@Telstra has announced the acquisition of @Readify, a developer of @Microsoft software applications, saying it will bolster the telecommunications provider’s cloud offerings.
The #Readify acquisition augments #Telstra ‘s purchase of #Kloud in January, according to Telstra’s executive director of Global Enterprise and Services Michelle Bendschneider, as well as its earlier acquisitions of #O2Networks, #Bridgepoint Communications, and #NSC.
“As we know, apps and software in general are playing an increasingly important role in businesses. Readify is recognised globally for its innovative software solutions and will further help us create software-led digital transformations with our customers,” Bendschneider said.
“Readify will provide application development and data analytics services, nicely complementing Kloud’s existing services. It will enable Telstra to add incremental value to customers in enterprise cloud applications, API-based customisation, and extensions, as well as business technology advisory services.”
Readify, which has won several awards from Microsoft for its software solutions, has approximately 200 staff members, 160 of which are software developers. The company said the acquisition will allow its business to scale within Telstra.
