IBM has taken over Taos, a top Cloud professional and managed services provider, for an amount that has yet to be revealed as it increases its Hybrid Cloud capabilities.
Taos has its headquarters in San Jose, California and has been in the business for 30 years and also brings leading brands throughout technology, financial services, healthcare, retail, transportation and education.
Taos was a top adopter of public cloud technologies and has built powerful partnerships with Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure to supply data centre migration, platform engineering and hybrid cloud managed services, IBM said.
IBM Global Business Services, SVP, Cloud Application Innovation and COO, John Granger said, “Taos adds the deep expertise, public cloud partnerships and innovative solutions needed to drive growth and adoption of IBM’s hybrid cloud platform throughout the Americas.”
Top IT industry analysts estimate the market for cloud professional services will go past $200 billion by the year 2024.
CEO of Taos, Hamilton Yu said, “Our laser-like focus on helping clients migrate to the cloud, modernise multi-cloud platforms, and manage hybrid cloud environments over the past several years is a natural fit with IBM Global Business Services.”
