Belgian and Dutch partners target the market with the largest BizTalk opportunities
Codit Group, a joint venture between Belgian Codit and Dutch Axon Olympus, has opened its Codit United Kingdom business.
This marks Codit Group’s next step towards expanding its international presence outside its established markets of Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Portugal, and its recent opening of Codit Switzerland.
Codit and Axon Olympus are specialists in on-premises and IoT cloud integration solutions on the Microsoft platform. They combined forces by forming joint venture Codit Group.
Their ambition is to become a pan-European “centre of excellence” in Microsoft integration solutions. The new local office in the United Kingdom will be led by commercial director and country manager Tim Lewis.
Lewis brings over 23 years of experience managing OEM and strategic client engagements for international software manufacturers, with a further three years running a UK integration business unit. He said: “I have developed solution based consulting opportunities around the Microsoft stack, including BizTalk Server and Azure (both on premises and hybrid solutions) and associated complimentary products.
“The UK is known to be the largest market for integration and Microsoft BizTalk in Europe, and we will now offer local presence and expertise while enjoying the support and services of the larger international organisation.”
He is joined by technical director Iain Quick, a technology solutions architect with over 20 years of commercial consulting experience, developing and delivering custom applications and infrastructures based on Microsoft Azure, BizTalk Server, SharePoint and SQL platforms.
In 2015, Codit and Axon Olympus achieved a combined turnover of €11.3 million in Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Portugal. Customers include AG Insurance, Joules, Sally Beauty, G4S, BAM Groep, Boss Paints, DS Smith, Le Bon Marché and SMT Shipping.
