Aditi Technologies acquires US cloud computing firm

“We are betting our business on cloud computing, which will give competitive advantage to customers as we have demonstrated our domain expertise in building solutions on Windows Azure for Microsoft’s independent software vendors (ISVs) and enterprises in partnership with Cumulux,” Aditi chief executive Pradeep Rathinam said in a statement.

As global software major Microsoft’s national system integrator partner, Aditi focuses on enterprise social, big data, mobile and digital marketing.

“As a valuable partner for Windows Azure in the ecosystem, our customers will have opportunities to leverage the scale and depth of Aditi and Cumulux for driving their businesses,” Microsoft vice-president Jenni Flinders said.

The Bangalore-based Aditi will leverage its Microsoft alignment to roll out cloud services to software vendors and enterprise markets in the US, Britain and India.

The partners have till date helped about 50 ISV and e-commerce customers adopt and deploy Azure through the Azure acceleration lab.

“Kicking off a global launch, we will build an Azure delta force of architects and multi-vendor partners to drive Azure adoption in collaboration with Microsoft across the three geographic regions,” Rathinam said.

Aditi will also hire and train 130 cloud developers to build a cloud services platform for delivering internet protocol-led innovations for customers as they migrate their applications to the cloud.

“The synergy of our global scale and strong Microsoft DNA make us one of the top Azure service providers in the market. Aditi will give our customers competency and scale in leveraging Azure to build large scale complex solutions,” Cumulux chief executive Paddy Srinivasan noted.

Post-acquisition, Srinivasan will join Aditi’s cloud advisory board and continue to drive Azure business.
