Smart IMS today announced it has acquired Atlas Communications Technology (Atlas) and its subsidiary companies, broadening its portfolio of services and solutions to include cloud and managed services offerings. The companies had been working together for several years before they established Atlas Smart IMS (ASIMS), and based on the success of that joint venture, agreed to bring all the companies together to accelerate growth.
"We are honored to welcome the Atlas team to our family of companies, and to bring even more capabilities to our customers and partners," said Amar Reddy, CEO, Smart IMS. "Atlas brings nearly two decades of success and experience working with some of the top enterprises in the financial services industry. We are particularly excited to bring the Atlas ConnX brand, with its track record of innovation in the next wave of real time communications cloud-based solutions, into our portfolio. Together we are extremely well positioned to help enterprises transform their networks, develop and roll out competitive business applications, and run more efficiently and productively than ever."
Atlas will continue to operate as a separate brand within Smart IMS, and will be led by Indrajit “I.G.” Ghosh, most recently CTO of Atlas, focusing on the growth of cloud and managed services. The companies are consolidating their offices to Smart IMS' global headquarters in Plainsboro, New Jersey where the teams will join forces, working together as the companies continue to grow in 2016 and beyond.
"There is no better fit for Atlas' team and customers than with Smart IMS," Mr. Ghosh said. "We share a collective vision, and by merging our resources and continuing to work with our world-class partners, we will be able to better service our direct customers and large sales channels including many large communications service providers and carriers. Our deep bench of business and communications applications development talent and skills will also help customers optimize their investment in the transformation to IP networking including moving to Software Defined Networking.”
The combined companies’ portfolio traverses physical infrastructure, network engineering and management, enterprise applications development and management, software defined networking (SDN), embedded real time communications services, and Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS). Together, the companies have professionals across all aspects, and experienced teams who can deliver projects from conception to completion, followed by ongoing monitoring and management.
“The success and growth of ASIMS in serving over fifty of the Fortune 500 companies with our industry-leading Avatar Managed Services platform, made a clear case to bring these companies together as one,” said Steven Pitchon, Managing Director of ASIMS. “We look forward to serving our customers with an increasing array of services, while continuing to grow our core business.”
"With the acquisition of Atlas, we are consolidating Operations and Professional Services making it even easier for our enterprise customers to engage with our collective team," said Nagesh Gouravaram, COO of Smart IMS. "We are now able to help our customers and partners design, engineer, implement, manage and evolve their networks - and applications - in long term partnership."
Smart IMS now has over 400 employees, operating in the US, UK, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Riyad and Australia, and world class partners including HP, Microsoft, Oracle, Sonus, GENBAND, AT&T, Intel, Cisco, VMware, and more.
Operating as a Smart IMS company, Atlas’ offerings will include Unified Communications as a Service (UCaaS), Session Border Control (SBC) as a Service (SBCaaS), Unified Communications Engineering and App Development, Professional Services and Project Management.
Smart IMS will continue offering Professional Services, Applications Development and Management, Independent QA/QC services, and Network Infrastructure Management.
