HPE to Acquire Cloud Technology Partners to Strengthen Cloud Consulting Services

Days after Micro Focus announced the completion of the purchase of the HPE software business, HPE has announced its intent to acquire Cloud Technology Partners (CTP), an IT services organization.

The purchase price of CTP was not disclosed.

HPE Pointnext is HPE’s IT services organization. A core capability, the company says, is helping customers evaluate their IT strategy, determine the right environment for each workload and then execute their transition to a cloud environment (or multiple clouds), an on-premises data center, or more likely, a mix of the two. The acquisition of CTP, detailed in an HPE blog post, is aimed at strengthening HPE’s hybrid IT capabilities by extending its cloud consulting expertise.

According to HPE, CTP helps its enterprise clients move to the cloud, innovate in the cloud using key technologies like IoT, big data and machine learning, and operate in the cloud

Founded in 2010, CTP is cloud-agnostic, says HPE, with experience on multiple platforms, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google, and OpenStack.
