TYSONS, Va., Oct. 10, 2017 – DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), the world’s leading independent, end-to-end IT services company, today announced that it has signed an agreement to acquire Logicalis SMC, one of the Netherlands’ leading providers of technology-enabled solutions for the service management sector.
The combination of Logicalis SMC with DXC’s Fruition Partners’ business solidifies DXC’s position as one of the most experienced global integrators for ServiceNow (NYSE: NOW), a DXC strategic partner.
Increasingly, enterprise clients are seeking better, faster and more efficient service management capabilities across processes, applications and infrastructure – both traditional and cloud-enabled. The combined strength of DXC’s Fruition Partners business with Logicalis SMC strengthens DXC’s scale, reach, industry experience and skills portfolio in the fast-growing enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) market.
The transaction will also expand DXC’s Fruition Partners presence in the Netherlands and Europe. Logicalis SMC, founded in 1998, has 184 employees across the Netherlands and the UK. Logicalis SMC is a strong partner to ServiceNow in Europe and the first European company to become a ServiceNow Master Solutions partner. Logicalis SMC also sells proprietary software built on the ServiceNow platform.
“The addition of Logicalis SMC to Fruition Partners solidifies DXC’s position as a nimble, global ServiceNow partner,” said Troy Richardson, DXC senior vice president and general manager of Enterprise & Cloud Applications. “Together, Fruition Partners with Logicalis SMC provide enterprise clients with end-to-end support for ServiceNow-related software and solutions, as well as a broader range of professional service management offerings. DXC is at the forefront of helping modern enterprises optimize technology with an expanded range of XaaS capabilities.”
“We are thrilled to accelerate our global growth with the addition of the Logicalis SMC team in Europe,” said Marc Talluto, Global ServiceNow practice lead for DXC. “Our cultural match, shared vision and capabilities for Enterprise Service Management on the ServiceNow platform will greatly enhance our ability to address customer needs in mainland Europe and around the world.”
“With the acquisition of Logicalis SMC, DXC Technology is strengthening its role as a leader in the ServiceNow partner ecosystem,” says David Schneider, chief revenue officer at ServiceNow. “DXC’s digital transformation capabilities, enabled by ServiceNow’s cloud platform is a powerful opportunity for our mutual clients to drive greater service experiences across the enterprise.
