Capgemini expands in APAC with acquisition of WhiteSky Labs

Capgemini has signed an agreement to acquire WhiteSky Labs, one of the largest independent MuleSoft full-service consultancies in the world, with operations across Australia and Asia.

WhiteSky Labs team or more than 150 people will help Capgemini to realise the potential of API powered enterprise integration across the region, to support the digital transformation of public and private sector organisations. 

in 2009, WhiteSky Labs has developed a market leading footprint in Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore. Whitesky Labs ensures companies bridge the gap between strategy and IT by embedding effective organisational processes, structures and methods. 

Client projects span multiple sectors and include full-stack consulting services on the MuleSoft Anypoint Platform, managed support services, license management and training services.

“The acquisition of WhiteSky Labs will help Capgemini accelerate its fast growth in Singapore, Philippines and across Southeast Asia by offering customers unrivalled depth and breadth of services for end-to-end integration solutions,” said Gaurav Modi, managing director of Capgemini in Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Steve Wilson, CEO of WhiteSky Labs, said joining Capgemini means they will be able to offer clients their deep MuleSoft expertise coupled with end-to-end digital transformation services at scale, increasing their ability to answer the needs of global enterprises.

“The addition of WhiteSky Labs’ specialist and award winning expertise to our Australia and Asia operation will not only help to meet the digital transformation needs of our clients across the region, enabling them to unlock data across legacy systems, cloud apps and devices, but it will also bolster our expertise in this space that are very much in demand across the globe,” said Fernando Alvarez, chief strategy and development officer at Capgemini. 

Rob Thorne, SVP of APAC and Japan at MuleSoft, said their latest research shows that three out of four Australian organisations expect a negative revenue impact if they don’t complete digital transformation in the next 12 months. By leveraging an API-led approach to connectivity, businesses can build a composable enterprise where digital capabilities can be composed instead of built from scratch, dramatically increasing the speed of innovation and ability for IT to deliver connected customer experiences.
