Version 1 has acquired the Oracle ERP business of London-based Database Service Provider Global.
Version 1 is an Oracle Platinum Partner with €75 million revenues and 750 employees in offices across the UK and Ireland. The Company has previously completed five successful acquisitions including Oracle E-Business Suite specialist Patech Solutions in 2015.
Justin Keatinge, CEO, Version 1, said: “[The acquisition] further consolidates our position as the Oracle partner of choice for customers requiring integrated end-to-end services and joined-up expertise across Oracle applications, database, hardware and cloud… This deal is the latest step in our acquisition programme which is focused on reinforcing our ability to deliver a complete line of solutions and services across our main technology partnerships with Oracle, Microsoft and Amazon.”
Simon Goodenough, executive chairman of Database Service Provider Global, said: “We are delighted to have found, in Version 1, a good home for our award winning Oracle ERP consulting practice and its clients. This de-merger allows us to rapidly increase the rate of investment in our Oracle and Microsoft SQL core technology managed services, as well as continue to innovate and develop our Oracle Cloud and Microsoft Azure solutions. Having acquired Oracle Support provider FSR Change Management last year we envisage further inorganic growth during 2016 as we strive to go the extra mile for our clients. These are exciting times.”
Version 1 has appointed Chris Baker as ERP practice head with responsibility for all ERP consulting and managed services across UK & Ireland encompassing both cloud and on-premise solutions. Baker joined Version 1 from KPMG and has in his 30-year career led many Oracle ERP engagements and held consultancy, sales, and leadership roles in Oracle UK as well as start-ups and multi-national companies.
