Prolifics, a global digital transformation leader, has acquired Tier 2 Consulting Limited which is incorporated and registered in England and Wales. Tier 2 delivers software solutions to its clients using modern, open-source, cloud-native technology, and an agile project approach. The Tier 2 team is composed of full-stack Java developers and Red Hat Middleware and OpenShift experts. Based on its skills and experience, Tier 2 was in fact the first Red Hat Premier Middleware Partner for the UK and Ireland.
For Prolifics, the acquisition is part of its ongoing expansion and growth goals. Tier 2 brings expert custom software development – using its agile approach with disciplined delivery – to a large and loyal UK customer base. Its Red Hat Premier Partner status, coupled with Prolifics’ already strong partnership with IBM, will expand opportunities across the board.
Satya Bolli, Prolifics Chairman & Managing Director, said, “We are thrilled to have Tier 2 as part of the Prolifics family. Their skill in software development and delivery and significant expertise in Red Hat Middleware and OpenShift will greatly increase our position and visibility in the high growth potential of the UK and North America cloud markets.”
Andrew Kennedy, Managing Director at Tier 2 Consulting, said, “This acquisition marks a significant milestone in Tier 2’s 20-year history. Building on our already proven track record of custom software design and development, it will provide Tier 2 with the basis for future expansion, to the benefit of our customers and our highly skilled team. We share Prolifics’ ethos around quality solution delivery and technical expertise, and are delighted to have become part of the family.”
After becoming a part of Prolifics, Tier 2 will be able to scale its existing custom software delivery capability to meet the increasing demands of its customers, offer expanded solutions and services in performance, volume, and penetration testing, in data and analytics, as well as provide enhanced career opportunities and job advancement for its people. Tier 2 will continue to operate as a separate entity under its current leadership structure.
