Digia improves position as enabler of customers’ digital business and buys Integration House Oy
The owners of Digia Plc and Integration House Oy signed an agreement on 4 December 2017, through which Digia Plc will acquire Integration House Oy's entire share capital. With this acquisition, and in accordance with its strategy, Digia will strengthen its position as a broad-based IT services company, whose world-class expertise in integration and API solutions enables interoperability in an increasingly digital world.
Digia Plc is acquiring Integration House Oy, which specialises in modern integration solutions. Integration House Oy had estimated net sales of approximately EUR 1.8 million in 2017. The company has grown rapidly and currently employs 21 people in Turku, Helsinki and Tampere.
"Business needs to respond to changes at a faster and faster pace. Businesses are networking; the availability of real-time data and the management and development of changing partner and customer needs lie at the heart of enterprise. This is enabled by integration, where APIs are the keyword. Through the acquisition, Digia will strengthen its position as a leading player in integration and as a builder of Finland’s API economy. Clever integration is the ‘engine oil’ of the digital economy. I wish all of Integration House’s experts a warm welcome to the Digia team – we are doing the coolest stuff in Finland," says Timo Levoranta, President and CEO of Digia.
"Integration House has strong expertise, particularly in Dell Boomi technology, which is growing its market share, and certain, open source-code integration technologies. Combined with experience of modern integration architectures, this expertise is the ideal complement for Digia's offering and ability to deliver. Through this acquisition, we will be even better able to serve our joint, growing customer base and build integration and API capabilities for them, enabling their digital transformation. Digia will have over 150 experts in integration after the acquisition,” says Teemu Virtanen, Senior Vice President, Information Management Services.
"Digia will enable us to offer a wider and more varied service to our customers. The technologies we use are the perfect complement for Digia's current integration solutions and services. Digia also won us over with its Digia spirit and high employee ratings, which convinced us that it would provide a good new home for our most valuable asset, our employees. We are excited about taking on new challenges as employees of Digia," says Jarmo Nokelainen, CEO of Integration House.
The parties have agreed not to publish the sale price. The acquisition will not affect the employment relationships of Integration House Oy’s personnel.
