SoftwareONE, a leading global Platform, Solutions and Services company,
is pleased to announce the acquisition of a controlling stake in
InterGrupo, one of Latin America’s leading cloud technology consulting
and application modernization providers. This strategic acquisition
enables SoftwareONE to strengthen its service offerings in the region

InterGrupo enables organizations to innovate their businesses by helping
them transform, migrate, re-platform, re-factor and digitize their
existing or new application landscape. The company automates processes
to accelerate the pace of business, while modernizing legacy
applications and migrating them to cloud-native technologies in
Microsoft’s Azure and AWS, simultaneously integrating new
functionalities such as artificial intelligence and machine learning.
InterGrupo is the go-to-partner for software development and the leader
in Azure technology in the Latin-American market. With their
headquarters in Colombia and subsidiaries in Ecuador, Dominican
Republic, Mexico, Panama and Peru, InterGrupo’s presence immediately
strengthens SoftwareONEs position in Latin-America. Over the course of
the next quarters, InterGrupo application modernization capabilities
will be integrated into SoftwareONE global portfolio and made available
in nearly 90 countries to over 50,000 customers and partners.

InterGrupo expertise spans across a range of the latest technology
solutions, including solutions to transform processes in organizations
using Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence
techniques. Solutions such as the Smart Virtual Assistant, which helps
create an omni-channel modern customer experience, and advanced
cognitive security techniques, which ensure business continuity and
minimize operational risk, are relevant and critical to addressing
modern customers’ digital transformation needs.

Dieter Schlosser, CEO at SoftwareONE said: “Following our strategic
Vision 2022 of supporting organization’s journey to the cloud beyond the
limitation of a classical lift & shift approach, the acquisition of
InterGrupo opens up a new strategic segment for SoftwareONE as we invest
into our App Modernization and DevOps/Digital Engineering portfolio. All
over the world, SoftwareONE and InterGrupo customers alike will benefit
from this powerful combination of technical skills, customer focus, and
innovation. Once again it shows that we are focused on real technology
adoption that makes a difference for our customers.”

He continues: “SoftwareONE has been maintaining close ties with
InterGrupo for many years. Today, I am very excited to take our
partnership to the next level and welcome Darío Solorzano and his team
to the SoftwareONE family.”

Neil Lomax, President at SoftwareONE said: “We never stand still when
searching for the best solutions and services that make the difference
to our customers. As the needs of our customers change and grow, so do
we. Right now, digital transformation is on everyone’s agenda. We make
digital transformation accessible to all organizations independent of
geography, size and segmentation. An essential contributor to digital
transformation is app modernization, which supports the transformation
of applications to cloud native technologies and bringing them up to par
with the latest functions and capabilities to get the best possible
business outcome.”

Darío Solórzano, founder of InterGrupo said: “This is a very exciting
milestone for InterGrupo! For our customers, our partners and our
employees this union with SoftwareONE offers tremendous opportunities.
We share the same passion for culture and for transforming our
customers’ businesses digitally, and I am thrilled that we can do so on
a global scale now with SoftwareONE. I look forward to contributing our
experience and capabilities around App Development and Modernization,
DevOps/Digital Engineering, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
