T-Systems expands web technologies capability through acquisition of Vamosa software product suite
T-Systems is to integrate market-leading content governance software and solutions previously sourced from technology vendor Vamosa Limited, into its existing portfolio of web and content management offerings. Vamosa ceased trading in September, but through a deal announced today in London, T-Systems has acquired the intellectual property rights that will allow it to continue to develop and sell those products as the T-Systems Vamosa Technologies suite. The acquisition was made from Fraser Gray and Elizabeth Mackay, Joint Administrators, Zolfo Cooper.
Sam Kingston, Vice President and Managing Director of T-Systems in the UK, welcomed the deal. "Our due diligence shows that there is strong demand for products and services based on Vamosa technology. Many CIOs recognise that web and content management technologies are critical to business operations and sales strategy. With the Vamosa Technologies capability, T-Systems can tap into a growth market and penetrate new industry sectors.
The acquisition supports T-Systems' strategic focus fuelling growth by enabling collaboration and mobility. "Executives are looking for innovative technologies that help them reduce the complexity of managing multiple e-channels, which they rely on to drive knowledge sharing and customer transactions. An increasing number of critical business processes depend on the implementation of a secure and consistent governance structure that ensures employees, partners and customers have access to reliable content at all times and across all screens," said Peter Row, Vice President of T-Systems UK Systems Integration who led the acquisition. "By expanding our portfolio to target this business issue we will be offering a unique end to end solution for customers in the marketplace."
The market-leading suite of products previously developed by Vamosa Limited, automatically tags digital content, cleans legacy data and seamlessly migrates content into content management systems. On an ongoing basis the software technology ensures corporate standards are adhered to and auto-fixes any breaches it uncovers.
These new capabilities complement T-Systems existing strengths in supporting clients to implement new business models that take full advantage of the online channels. This includes creating web-enabled business processes to support customer sales as well as those to support rigorous internal enterprise content management. T-Systems world-class reputation for Dynamic Services will also serve as a strong foundation from which to satisfy the growing demand for access to parts of the T-Systems Vamosa product suite via the cloud.
