- Proximus announces the acquisition of Umbrio, a Dutch company specialized in IT & network operations, monitoring and analytics.
- Umbrio has achieved Splunk Elite partner status and is considered a leader in its domain of expertise in the Benelux with revenues of approximately EUR 11 million in 2017.
- This acquisition will boost Proximus’ ambition to become a Digital Service Provider, further strengthening its support to customers in their digital transformation through innovative and meaningful technologies.
Turning machine data into valuable insights
Supporting enterprise customers in their digital transformation journey is the cornerstone of Proximus’ strategy. With IT environments of companies getting increasingly complex, a clear understanding of what is happening across IT silos is needed, including data from customer’s devices, websites, applications, servers, cloud infrastructure, networks, and IoT assets. By monitoring and analysing everything from customer clickstreams and transactions to network activity and call records, Umbrio turns machine data into valuable business insights.
The acquisition of Umbrio is in line with Proximus’ Fit for Growth strategy and the ambition to invest in key strategic domains, enabling Proximus to become a Digital Service Provider for its enterprise customers. Umbrio’s ability to implement end-to-end monitoring of IT environments is highly complementary to Proximus’ established leadership in network connectivity, IT and managed services. Furthermore, Umbrio’s services also fit nicely alongside those of Davinsi Labs (acquired by Proximus last year) which is a Splunk Elite partner in the security domain. Together they can answer today’s growing demand for end-to-end visibility on security, IT & network operations.
