The acquisition of Cedrus Digital, with its consulting-led model and over 150 cloud, data, and product engineers, primarily in the United States, will further augment Brillio’s nearshore digital transformation capabilities offered for Fortune 500 clients.
CHARLOTTE, NC – Cedrus Digital (“Cedrus”), a New York-based digital transformation and cloud consulting firm, has been acquired by Brillio, a leader in digital technology consulting and services. This acquisition significantly strengthens Brillio’s product & platform engineering, data analytics engineering, cloud security and digital infrastructure capabilities, increasing Brillio’s near-shore presence and proximity to their strategic relationships in North America. 7 Mile Advisors acted as the exclusive sellside advisor to Cedrus throughout the transaction.
“Cedrus’ surgical approach to tackling complex customer problems through Cloud, AI, Process Automation, and Security consulting and development proved to be a winning combination. The Company’s unique skillsets and strategic partnerships, coupled with a history of success in highly regulated end markets such as Financial Services and Healthcare contributed to a successful outcome,” commented Nick Prendergast, Vice President at 7 Mile Advisors.
“From the beginning of the process to the very end, 7 Mile proved their knowledge of the digital transformation ecosystem and what drives value within it. The team was organized and skillful in their approach and ultimately found the perfect partner to capitalize on the solutions Cedrus offers,” added Nicolas Jabbour, CEO of Cedrus Digital.
Leveraging Cedrus’ U.S. and Asia-based experts across cloud-native engineering, cloud security, cloud infrastructure ops, conversational AI, machine learning, cognitive automation, intellectual property, and an AWS Advanced Consulting partnership, Brillio will enhance its end-to-end digital transformation solutions across regulated industry groups – Healthcare, Financial Services, and Automotive. Cedrus also brings deep partnerships with RedHat (Apex level), Netskope, Okta, and Confluent to Brillio. The announcement comes on the heels of Brillio’s acquisition of consulting and technology services firm, Standav, last month, which made Brillio one of the largest Salesforce enterprise sales transformation providers in the world.
Raj Mamodia, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Brillio said, “As companies continue to accelerate and scale their digital ambitions, they increasingly need proven expertise with industry-specific domain experience. Acquiring Cedrus Digital is a tremendous opportunity to deepen Brillio’s on-shore capabilities in cloud-native engineering, cognitive process automation, and cloud security. Their founding team of senior practitioners will bring their passion for customer success, a consultative approach, agility, and a culture of digital-native innovation, which is a natural fit for Brillio’s culture. We’ve consistently been thoughtful about our expansion, both organic and inorganic, with our clients’ needs being at the forefront of our growth strategy and I am thrilled to have the extraordinarily brilliant Cedrus Digital team join Brillio.”
