Integration of leading cloud transformation services deepens strength of excellence and drives impact & value in the market
New York, NY - November 17, 2020 - PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP (PwC) announced it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire the assets of EagleDream Technologies (EagleDream), a leading cloud-native transformation company and Premier Consulting Partner in the Amazon Web Services Partner Network (APN).
EagleDream is a unique, full-stack cloud transformation company with advanced cloud and application modernization services and other complimentary core capabilities. Together, this full stack offers user interface (UI) and user experience (UX) design; cloud adoption; application modernization; development, security and operations; data transformation; managed cloud services; and digital differentiation.
Among the highly skilled cloud professionals at EagleDream joining through the acquisition, PwC also welcomes multiple APN Ambassadors. APN Ambassadors are highly qualified technical individuals who work for an APN Consulting Partner. As a highly selective community of less than 200 members globally and less than 50 in North America, these experts work closely with Amazon Web Services (AWS) Solution Architects to migrate, design, implement and monitor AWS workloads.
“Today, most business transformations are underpinned by cloud platforms — and this acquisition bolsters our ability to drive to maintain our leadership in that market,” said Mohamed Kande, PwC Vice Chair and US & Global Advisory Leader. “Combined with our existing capabilities and expertise, this allows us to create a deeper strength of excellence, improve our ability to deliver business outcomes and help our clients innovate, disrupt and transform their businesses.”
The sale is specific to the US member firm of the PricewaterhouseCoopers network. Upon closing, the approximate 100 employees of EagleDream will transition to PwC’s US Advisory business.
“Combining EagleDream’s depth of cloud-native expertise with the core competencies PwC provides offers us the ability to help enterprise’s redefine what’s possible with technology,” said Bob Moore, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of EagleDream Technologies, “Together, our detailed engineering skills and end-to-end approach enables us to drive impact and value in the market at scale.”
The parties have entered into a definitive agreement for the transaction and are working toward the deal’s closing.
