Computer Sciences Corporation, better known as CSC, the multinational headquartered in Virginia, USA, announced the acquisition of Santa Monica-based ServiceMesh, an enterprise-grade cloud management provider specialized in automation of the deployment and management of enterprise applications and platforms across private, public and hybrid cloud environments.
CSC is following a strategy that should transform the compay, over almost the last two years and following several acquisitions which include Infochimps and 42six Solutions and having signed last August an alliance agreement with AT&T, CSC is aiming to take a position among the big names of the technology solutions and services marketplaces, being able to offer cloud computing, big data, cybersecurity and next-generation applications.
The acquired company ServiceMesh brings to CSC its product called ServiceMesh Agility Platform, an integrated control point for governance, compliance and security across cloud applications and environments, empowering employees with self-service access to applications, platforms and services.
It is still unknown the amount CSC paid for the acquisition and the two companies expect to close the transaction in the third quarter of CSC’s fiscal year 2014.
CSC President and Chief Executive Officer Mike Lawrie declares:
The future of next-generation IT infrastructure will involve a set of multiple clouds utilized simultaneously by enterprises, ServiceMesh allows us to catalogue enterprise applications and orchestrate those applications dynamically to run in different clouds based on the characteristics of the applications. From our unique position as an independent global technology company, we will integrate those workloads for our clients through our portfolio of services and technologies.
