Servian acquires Vibrato, plans overseas expansion Featured

By

Data and analytics provider Servian has acquired automation and DevOps specialist Vibrato in a multi-million dollar deal, as it sets itself to expand to overseas markets.

The Sydney-headquartered Servian announced the deal - the price of which was not disclosed - on Tuesday saying it cements its position as the “largest privately owned pure play data consulting firm in Australia”.

Servian and Vibrato say they have both grown small footprints in various overseas markets, but the geographic expansion is now expected to accelerate as Servian expands its presence in the New Zealand and UK markets before the end of the year.

Vibrato, a DevOps specialist, helps clients get products to market faster and more reliably, and was co-founded in 2015 in Melbourne by Peter Gatt and James Martelletti.

As part of the deal, Servian has also taken a 40% stake in cloud visibility software business, Hava, which is Vibrato's sister company.

James Martelletti will continue to lead Hava, while Peter Gatt will join the Servian team as a partner.

Servian and Vibrato both partner with Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure, specialising in helping clients design, build and manage multi-cloud environments - and through the acquisition say they will make cloud migrations more efficient.

Vibrato’s 50 staff will take Servian’s headcount to about 400 people.

“This deal will help us move customers more quickly and efficiently to the cloud,” Servian founder and CEO, Tony Nicol, says. “Every business we speak to is trying to realise that vision.”

“We’re focused on tackling complex problems to make people’s lives easier every day. It’s about getting ideas into production as quickly as possible,” Gatt, says.

“We talked to other interested parties but Servian felt like the best cultural fit. Both of our company’s clients are gaining access to a broader set of specialist skills.”
