October 14, 2021

3Cloud announced that it has acquired Polaris Solutions.

"Our commitment to delivering the ultimate Azure experience for our clients continues with our acquisition of Polaris Solutions," said Mike Rocco, 3Cloud CEO and Co-Founder. "Polaris has built an exceptionally talented team with a passion for creating software that helps clients achieve business results. Combining our team of Azure experts with theirs enhances our capabilities and enables us to continue scaling to meet demand for Azure services."

Polaris' team of skilled Azure developers will join 3Cloud's Application Modernization & Development and DevOps practices, bringing expertise in application lifecycle management and agile development.

"At Polaris, we focus on modern solutions that bring big business outcomes to our customers," said Chris Kadel, Polaris Solutions Founder and CEO. "Solving problems through software innovation brings our customers and our team members great joy. 3Cloud shares this value..."

Both firms have strong partnerships with Microsoft and industry-leading Microsoft credentials. 3Cloud and Polaris are both Microsoft gold partners and have longstanding and complementary relationships with Microsoft sales and engineering.

"Client demand for Azure services across the breadth of our solution areas has grown tremendously over the past year as companies have accelerated their cloud adoption in response to unprecedented marketplace changes," said Jim Dietrich, 3Cloud President and Co-Founder. "With the help of our financial partner Gryphon Investors, we will continue to pursue opportunities to scale to meet client demand and further strengthen our status as the largest Azure-focused services provider in the U.S."

Kirkland & Ellis served as legal advisor to 3Cloud and Gryphon Investors. Gryphon Investors completed a majority investment in 3Cloud in June 2020.

Polaris was advised in the transaction by Innovation Advisors, a technology focused investment bank.
