Red Hat announced new capabilities and features for Red Hat OpenShift, the company's enterprise Kubernetes platform.
Adaptavist announced the acquisition of Go2Group, a US technology firm specializing in Agile and DevOps services and cloud solutions for the enterprise.
With the Go2Group acquisition, Adaptavist increases its existing Atlassian leadership while adding new services, employees and locations to support its ongoing commitment to North American enterprises and organizations.
Go2Group's Platinum Partner status with Atlassian, CloudBees and AWS and strong technical expertise help enterprise customers streamline efficiency and collaboration across their global teams and move to a remote-friendly operations model. Adaptavist will integrate Go2Group's Professional Services and Solutions offerings including its Atlassian Reseller division into its own portfolio. The acquisition positions Adaptavist as one of the largest Atlassian services providers in the world (covering every major time zone) and increases its footprint in North America substantially.
Martin Musierowicz, Head of Global Channels at Atlassian. "Our mission at Atlassian is to unleash the potential of every team and the combination of Adaptavist and Go2Group will help do just that. This is great news for enterprises looking to enable open, agile teamwork at scale."
Go2Group will provide a strategic advantage as Adaptavist continues to expand its offerings to include more Atlassian consulting, a robust AWS practice, more DevOps consulting, and new strategic partnerships with Gitlab and CloudBees.
"Around the world, radical change has become business as usual," said Simon Haighton-Williams, CEO of Adaptavist. "Change and uncertainty is causing many U.S. businesses to grapple with slower growth, disruption from new competition, and pressure from internal sources. Software used in the right way can be a lifeline. Adaptavist coupled with Go2Group, delivers the in-depth consulting and technical support needed for enterprises to optimize their IT investments and thrive in this fast-paced, digitally transforming environment."
Tom Stiling, Go2Group Chairman and CEO adds "Not only does Adaptavist provide a great home for our IT and DevOps solutions and talented people, but we're thrilled that they will now be a strategic Platinum channel partner for our ConnectALL software products and value stream management (VSM) platform, released under a new holding company called Goldfinger Holdings, Inc. This deal takes advantage of our complementary global capabilities and leverages technology synergies between the two brands."
Terms of the deal have not been disclosed.
