The combined entity will create a differentiated provider in the SAP space with:

  • A comprehensive set of services across SAP S/4HANA, analytics, private & public cloud, HCM/SuccessFactors, SAP BTP, and other technologies.
  • Industry-aligned SAP solutions, S/4HANA implementation accelerators and services for customers in retail, fashion, consumer goods, oil & gas, manufacturing, rail, logistics, and public sector.
  • Global delivery capabilities with over 600 staff across the USA, Canada, UK/Europe, India, and Sri Lanka.
  • A complementary set of IP solutions for SAP customers.

The combination is a game changer for S/4HANA transformations, bringing together unique IP assets. Applexus CeleRITE, an AI-powered platform that automates the migration of code, configurations, data, and security for fast S/4HANA migrations, will benefit from Absoft’s DATAMA solution, which allows customers to migrate only necessary data, including historical data, a major challenge in S/4HANA migrations. The combination enables customers to accelerate mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures through automated selective transitions.

By joining with Applexus, a market leader in SAP Data & Analytics with expertise in SAP Datasphere, SAC, and best-in-class cloud analytics platforms, Absoft significantly strengthens its analytics offerings for the UK and European market.

Ian Mechie, Founder and Chairman of Absoft, said: “The Absoft leadership team is delighted to take charge of driving growth for the combined entity in the UK and Europe. Our customers will now have access to a significantly wider range of services across advisory, implementation, and support services for S/4HANA, analytics, private & public cloud, HCM/SuccessFactors, SAP BTP, and other technologies. This also allows all our employees to continue to grow their skills and take forward all the good things we have built so far.”

“We are thrilled to join forces with Absoft and grow together as one team,” said Sam Mathew, CEO and Founder of Applexus.  “This acquisition aligns strongly with our overall growth strategy and helps us expand our presence in the UK and Europe, a key focus geography for us. Our strong cultural fit and shared values make us ideal partners,” he added.

Keith Davidson, Managing Director at Absoft, concluded: “Together with Applexus we are able to scale our industry and services footprint while adding complementary IP solutions. We can now offer 24/7 global services when our customers need it while continuing to provide the high-touch service we are known for.”
