SHI invests in cloud migration company to bolster brand offerings

SHI International, the Somerset-based information technology solutions provider, has made a strategic investment in a California-based cloud migration company under a partnership that aims to accelerate development of both firms’ services.

SHI said in a news release Tuesday that it will go to market with mLogica to help both firms’ customers migrate legacy databases, applications and platforms to the cloud, along with providing other services including Big Data analytics and IT infrastructure optimization.

“Over the last five years, SHI has invested aggressively to develop a range of professional and managed services capabilities, and we’ve seen revenue grow 54% in the past year,” SHI CEO and President Thai Lee said in a prepared statement. “This clear evolution of the SHI brand better positions us as a services delivery partner to help customers meet infrastructure and cloud goals.”

SHI has numerous longstanding strategic relationships with technology vendors, including Microsoft, Amazon, Oracle and more. This deal builds on that, SHI said, strengthening its ability to help customers adapt to changing technology needs and markets.

“The partnership with mLogica further strengthens that portfolio of services and gives SHI the ability to meet a broader set of customer needs as they migrate away from legacy infrastructure, make their data work harder and smarter, and continually optimize their IT environment,” Lee said.

Under the agreement, SHI will receive full access to technologies developed by mLogica and be authorized to deliver services outright and in partnership with the other company, it noted.
