IBM Announces Acquisition of Sentaca

By Luke Bellos

IBM recently announced the acquisition of  telco consulting and solutions developer, Sentaca. As part of this acquisition,  IBM intends to utilize Sentaca’s skilled team of tech experts to continue growing the company’s hybrid cloud consulting division.

Founded in 2008, Sentaca built a strong reputation in the tech consulting space, offering digital transformation support to organizations across the United States and Canada. The company helps customers build and migrate mission critical applications onto cloud platforms, in order to support distributed workforces and increase productivity potential. With Sentaca’s team now absorbed into IBMs hybrid cloud division, IBM intends to use the experience and expertise to provide support for 5G and IoT compatibility, and offer clients new opportunities to monetize new cloud investments.

"Our goal is to help modern networks thrive in an open, hybrid cloud environment that will bring edge and 5G to life for enterprises and consumers," said John Granger, Senior Vice President, IBM Consulting. "The proliferation of mobile devices, wireless connectivity, and new media platforms is driving convergence among telco, media, and entertainment, which makes our acquisition of Sentaca all the more valuable for our clients."

Cloud , 5G, and IoT compatibility are key technologies in the post pandemic age. As businesses continue to move beyond outdated infrastructure, IBM is a trusted partner through this intimidating process. With Sentaca now in the mix, IBM customers will benefit from an extra layer of vital tech knowledge competing brands may not be able to provide.

"Sentaca's deep knowledge and experience of telecom networks, coupled with our expertise in hybrid multi-cloud and automation services and solutions, is a perfect fit to complement IBMs telco/5G strategy," said Phil O'Neill, CEO of Sentaca. "We are very excited to join the IBM team and to be in a position to access additional resources and platforms to deliver on even larger and more ambitious enterprise cloud transformation projects?within the telco and media industry sector."
