Deloitte grows its Microsoft integration and cloud capabilities with Mexia set to join
Only last week, the professional services firm announced another cloud services business - Brisbane-based Amazon Web Services (AWS) specialist CloudTrek - was also joining.
Mexia was established in 2008 by CEO Dean Robertson, and offers Microsoft integration consulting, cloud, infrastructure and managed service solutions. Its 50 deep expertise specialists are equally spread across offices in both Melbourne and Brisbane.
The team will join Deloitte Consulting’s Technology Advisory Platform Engineering practice, with Robertson and current COO Mathew Coleman to become Deloitte Consulting partners.
Deloitte CEO, Richard Deutsch, said: “We are about enabling our clients to successfully execute strategy, innovate, and meeting the needs of their customers and stakeholders.
“Deep specialisation needs to be at the core of any professional services offering and the value we need to provide. Mexia, and the additional capability the team will bring certainly fits this mould.”
Deloitte Consulting Managing Partner, Kaylene O’Brien said: “Access to multiple cloud platform services is increasingly important to our clients and, just as with CloudTrek and other cloud specialists that have joined in recent years, Mexia is an industry leader that is well-established, well-connected, and very well-regarded.”
Clifford Foster, Platform Engineering Leader and Deloitte Consulting partner said: “Deloitte already has a market-leading Australian cloud-based integration services and platform engineering practice across AWS, Mulesoft and Red Hat.
“The team from Mexia will add to an already substantial platform engineering and systems integration national practice, and expand our portfolio into the Microsoft Azure platform and offerings across systems integration, the ‘Internet of Things’ and what we call ‘data in motion’, identifying the value of data flowing between systems in real time.”
Mexia CEO Dean Robertson said: “Joining a successful, growing and broad-based professional services leader like Deloitte is a great move for our business, and one that will present great opportunities for our people.
“Helping clients across multiple sectors to realise the value of cloud-based technology transformation is our bread and butter. Just like Deloitte, we can be part of every stage of our clients’ cloud development and design lifecycle.”
Terms of the Mexia transaction are confidential.
