IBM is acquiring Bluetab Solutions to extend its portfolio of data and hybrid cloud consulting services. Bluetab will become a strategic part of IBM’s data services consulting practice to further advance its hybrid cloud and AI strategy.
Bluetab’s data experts will join IBM Global Business Services to capitalize on the rapidly growing data services market opportunity.
Founded in 2005 and based in Madrid, Bluetab enables leading enterprises to drive more value from their data by transforming their on-premise data and analytics estates to hybrid multi-cloud data platforms using a combination of public cloud providers and technologies including Red Hat OpenShift.
Bluetab’s expertise in data and cloud migration services includes specialized data strategy, data fabric and advanced analytics.
“Our acquisition of Bluetab will fuel migration to the cloud and help our clients to realize even more value from their mission-critical data,” said Mark Foster, Senior Vice President, IBM Services and Global Business Services.
The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2021.
