NEW YORK, Jan. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ - Axxiome Group has completed the acquisition of J9 Technologies, Inc. to extend its reach and product portfolio in the North American market.
Axxiome is a global products, services and advisory firm focused on helping customers making key decisions about their business-critical applications, while J9 has products and services that guide customers through tuning and managing applications for IT operations. Axxiome and J9 together will provide a full service value chain including plan – build – test and run stages for strategic applications and systems.
"After working with Clay and his team at J9 over the last two years it's clear that our two organizations work well together and generate a unique value proposition for our key customers and markets," says Kris Hansen, Managing Director and CEO of Axxiome North America. "Making sure that critical systems are well designed and running smoothly is what our customers are looking for – and the market is open to seeing a new firm step into this space and coming from a position of quality and efficiency. I am very excited about how J9 products and team members amplify the value that Axxiome can bring to market."
The business challenges associated with growth, changing business models and increased regulatory compliance combined with the growing complexity of legacy bound systems have created a high cost of change and a lack of flexibility of company landscapes. The addition of J9's products and team will strengthen Axxiome's ability to help companies reduce complexity to create an increased flexibility, efficiency and reduce operational costs – driving higher resiliency.
Clay Roach, J9's Founder and CEO will become SVP and Chief Technology Officer for Axxiome North America. "By combining the strengths of Axxiome and J9, we are positioned to continue to expand the products and services we've brought to market, and grow our partner and global network considerably," says Roach. "This also allows us to more closely align to our customer's ways of conducting business and solve some of their nastiest and complex integration and application management issues."
Al Wasserberger, formerly J9's Chief Operating Officer will head Axxiome North America's sales and strategic partnership efforts as it's SVP of Corporate Development and Chief Revenue Officer. The transaction will also bring J9's approximately 20 US-based employees to Axxiome's ranks. J9's locations in New York, NY and Pittsburgh, PA will both become areas for focused investment and growth for Axxiome.
