IBM makes two cloud acquisitions a week: TruQua and Instana

26.11.2020 News

This week, IBM announced two acquisitions in the field of cloud computing: financial and analytical IT company TruQua Enterprises and software company Instana. The financial terms of the two agreements were not disclosed.

On Monday, IBM announced the acquisition of TruQua, which provides SAP solutions to Fortune 500 companies. SAP is one of the world’s most popular financial accounting and reporting software used to manage and plan corporate finance.

According to the press release, the acquisition will help IBM “in the transfer of financial platforms of customers to SAP”, i.e will change outdated corporate systems and fragmented financial processes to integrated cloud functions that optimize processes such as cash flow, budgeting, consolidation, etc.

BM’s existing arsenal of cloud services and hybrid services will complement TruQua’s offerings to provide customer with more capabilities.

“Our clients are rethinking their core financial processes with cloud technology, artificial intelligence and other technologies to increase value for their organizations. Our acquisition of TruQua strengthens IBM’s deep global finance experience and demonstrates our continued commitment to supporting CFOs’ strategic initiatives, “said Rahul Kalia, Global Managing Partner, Enterprise Cloud Applications, IBM Services.” IBM will leverage TruQua’s extensive experience SAP S / 4HANA Finance & Group Reporting solutions to improve business results through intelligent workflows and a hybrid cloud. ”

“We see a great opportunity to expand our differentiated knowledge assets through IBM’s portfolio of solutions, global reach and scale,” said co-founder of TruQua, David Dickson.

The companies expect the agreement to close in the fourth quarter of 2020, after fulfilling the usual conditions of closure and approval by regulators.

Purchase of IBM Instana

On Wednesday, IBM announced the acquisition of Instana, an application performance management company that offers its services either locally or as a “software as a service” (SaaS) solution, depending on customer needs.”

With the acquisition of Instana, IBM will help companies address application performance management across multiple teams and an average of 2-15 clouds,” the press release said.

This acquisition is in line with IBM’s other efforts and the launch of IBM Watson AIOps earlier this year. The company’s artificial intelligence (AI) aims to automate businesses self-detect, diagnose and respond to IT anomalies in real life time. The purchase is also logical in light of the acquisition of Red Hat in 2018, which is the backbone of IBM’s hybrid cloud business.

Instana solutions and existing IBM service solutions will help companies reduce operational risk and reduce costs by using AI to automate IT operations.
Given the rapid transition of enterprises to digital business solutions, such services and solutions will be in demand and should bring profit to IBM.
