DXC Technology has struck a deal to acquire Melbourne-headquartered Microsoft partner, Sable37, in a move that will bolster the integrator’s position as one of Microsoft’s leading global partners for Dynamics 365.

At the same time, DXC Technology has purchased UK-headquartered Microsoft partner, eBECS, for an undisclosed sum.

Beginning this month, both Sable37, which also has a presence in the New Zealand market, and eBECS will be combined with DXC’s Eclipse practice as part of an effort to enhance the integrator’s standing in the industry and add scale to its digital transformation strategy.

It is anticipated that the integration of DXC Eclipse with Sable37 and eBECS will mean DXC Technology can significantly expand its Dynamics 365 cloud capabilities across the UK, Australia, New Zealand, India, UAE, Saudi Arabia, the US and Canada.

Indeed, the additions of Sable37 and eBECS to DXC Technology’s ranks represent a key part of the company’s strategy to dominate the Microsoft partner marketplace and extend its cloud-based industry offerings globally.

“The acquisitions of eBECS and Sable37 will enhance our ability to address client needs and add significant value to DXC’s Eclipse global business,” DXC Technology enterprise and cloud applications senior vice president and general manager, Troy Richgardson, said.

“It allows DXC to expand and enhance its cloud-first business with software, services, systems integration and cloud offerings -- particularly in financial services, retail, manufacturing and public sector verticals,” he said.

For Sable37 managing director, Martin Wildsmith, the combination of the company with DXC Eclipse will position the business to offer greater service, innovation and opportunity for customers, partners and employees.

“As we transform, I look forward to building upon our joint legacy of performance; bringing together the best of both companies under DXC Eclipse,” Wildsmith said.

Although it is headquartered in Melbourne, Sable37 has expanded far and wide, with the Microsoft value-added reseller (VAR) claiming offices in New Zealand, the US, the United Arab Emirates and India.

The acquisition comes as DXC Technology celebrates the one-year anniversary of its creation following the completion of the multibillion-dollar spin-merger between Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) Enterprise Services business and Computer Sciences Corporation (CSC) in April last year.

Since then, the company has snapped up a number of new acquisitions, including Australian Oracle partner, M-Power Solutions, which provided Oracle cloud-based, enterprise performance management (EPM) and business intelligence (BI) solutions.

That acquisition, announced in March, saw the M-Power brand integrated within the DXC Red Rock practice and will build on DXC Technology’s digital transformation strategy.

DXC Technology’s latest local acquisition comes almost a year after Sable37 revealed it was scouting around the market for a new investor as it faced fresh growth and international expansion in countries such as New Zealand, Dubai, India and the United States.

"Bringing in an equity partner will help accelerate our solution development in our chosen industries – retail and distribution, home building, food manufacturing, and government," Sable37 global operations and marketing director, Fallon Cryer, told ARN in July last year.
