WhiteSky completes transformation to MuleSoft partner

Sydney-headquartered global enterprise integration specialist, WhiteSky Labs, has completed a six month transformation from a general IT services business to restructure as a dedicated MuleSoft Anypoint platform provider.

WhiteSky CEO Steve Wilson said that since changing its focus, the company had won new global customers including Sumitomo Corporation Asia and Oceania, a global healthcare company based in Singapore, a global medical supplies company based in Denmark and “multiple new Australian customers, for whom the company is implementing integration strategies and solutions utilising the MuleSoft platform”.

Wilson said that as a result of increased demand from new global customers and MuleSoft itself, WhiteSky had opened a Development Centre in Manila in the Philippines in May this year.

Wilson also said the process of transformation to becoming a MuleSoft partner had been completed with the “expert guidance of MuleSoft and the company’s private investment firm, Exto Partners”, which had backed WhiteSky since its inception.

“Having a Manila development team ensures that WhiteSky Labs can work on integration projects on a truly international basis for organisations that have technical teams working round the clock too. This complements WhiteSky Labs’ existing Development Lab in Hyderabad in India, which opened in 2009, when the company was a start-up.”

Wilson said the firm’s growing team in the Sydney headquarters was due to move to larger offices on King Street in early February to cope with its expansion.

“We’ve made a significant investment in building a world-class leadership team in the past few months and WhiteSky Labs is now 50% bigger than this time last year, hence the decision to move.”

Wilson said that over the last month, the company had recruited a number of new executives with significant industry experience in the enterprise integration space.

Peter Klement has joined WhiteSky as the Chief Operating Officer, having served in executive management positions for Capgemini, Software AG and SAP.  Klement will be responsible for overseeing WhiteSky’s global operations and customer delivery.

Greg Taylor has been appointed to WhiteSky Labs’ Board of Directors.  Taylor Greg has more than 15 years experience in middleware, cloud and enterprise software integration. He previously worked for Software AG as VP and Country Manager, and with Fuson Middleware Australia and Oracle.

Gary Burch has just joined WhiteSky as Marketing Director from Caltex. He previously worked for AOL in New York.

Wilson also announced the appointment of David Collins as the VP of Sales for ANZ. Collins, who takes up the position at the start of January, was previously Sales Manager and Practice Head at Manhattan Associates, Sales Director Consumer Business at QlikTech International and Partner and Alliances Sales Director at QlikTech ANZ.

“We’ve achieved great things in 2014 in terms of transforming the WhiteSky Labs business, winning new global clients and significant growth in what is a very dynamic market. We are excited about further growth and customer success in 2015 and now have a world class leadership team in place to execute,” Wilson said.
