Capgemini Acquires Australian MuleSoft Consultancy WhiteSky Labs

The latest acquisition extends Capgemini’s digital transformation capabilities in the APAC region

Capgemini has signed an agreement to acquire Australia-based MuleSoft AnyPoint Platform consultancy WhiteSky Labs, according to a press report released by both firms. The deal is expected to be closed in a few weeks, subject to usual conditions, says the report.

Capgemini seeks to expand its network of API-powered enterprise integration solutions across the APAC region, and this latest acquisition extends its penetration and digital transformaton capabilities in the region. Capgemini reported a revenue of US$15.6 billion in FY2019.

Founded in 2009, WhiteSky Labs currently operates in Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore. It claims to be one of the largest independent, dedicated MuleSoft consultancies in the world. MuleSoft, a Salesforce company, uses APIs– intermediary softwares that enable communication between two applications–to enable digital transformation.

MuleSoft’s research published on February 13, 2020 indicates that 3 out of 4 Australian enterprises expect a negative impact on revenue in the case of failing to achieve digital transformation in the next twelve months.

“Partners like Capgemini are critical in helping organizations develop API strategies and connect the almost 900 organizations within the average enterprise. By leveraging an API-led approach to connectivity, businesses can build a composable enterprise where digital capabilities can be composed instead of built from scratch, dramatically increasing the speed of innovation and ability for IT to deliver connected customer experiences,” MuleSoft Senior Vice President, APAC and Japan Rob Thorne said in the statement.

“We are thrilled to see Capgemini expand their MuleSoft specialist expertise in Australia and Asia with the addition of WhiteSky Labs to the group,” he added.

WhiteSky’s solution aims to bridge the gap between enterprise IT and strategy by advising on and implementing organizational processes and methodologies. It provides full-stack consulting services on the MuleSoft Anypoint Platform, including license management and training services. WhiteSky Labs works with more than 40 current MuleSoft customers including Energy Australia, Mynt, Blackmores, Qantas and 7-Eleven.

“The acquisition of WhiteSky Labs will help us to accelerate our clients’ digital transformations, enabling them to unlock data across legacy systems, cloud apps and devices to make smarter, faster decisions and create highly differentiated, connected experiences for their customers,” said Olaf Pietschner, Managing Director of Capgemini Australia and New Zealand.

“Joining Capgemini means we will be able to offer clients our deep MuleSoft expertise coupled with end-to-end digital transformation services at scale, increasing our ability to answer the needs of global enterprises,” said Steve Wilson, Founder and CEO of WhiteSky Labs.

Charles Woodall, SVP Alliances & Channels, Salesforce APAC said of the acquisition, “Capgemini is one of our fastest growing partners in both Australia and APAC and this acquisition will further bolster its capabilities across the region. We have a strong relationship with WhiteSky Labs and we are excited about the opportunity this presents for its team.”
