Octo Consulting Group announced on Tuesday that the company has acquired Connexta, a Phoenix, Arizona-based global leader in open source software development and secure discovery solutions for government and commercial customers.
With the acquisition, Octo bolsters its existing client base in the Intelligence Community (IC) and the Department of Defense (DoD), particularly the Air Force and its innovative software labs. Connextaâ€™s substantial capabilities will expand Octoâ€™s open source and Agile software development, cloud engineering, data interoperability, geospatial intelligence (GEOINT), and C4ISR offerings.
â€œThis acquisition is a huge win for both firms. There are enormous synergies in our talent, culture, and solutions that will enable us to drive immediate value across our collective customer base,â€ said Mehul Sanghani, Octoâ€™s CEO. â€œConnextaâ€™s two solution offerings lie at the heart of the ISR integration and GEOINT search and retrieval capabilities that are in use across many of our DoD and IC customers, and that have been increasingly embraced by our allied partners,â€ he added.
Connexta will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of Octo. The integration will provide U.S. Federal Government customers expanded access to Connextaâ€™s solution offerings including its Distributed Data Framework, a powerful geospatially-enabled search and integration platform, and Alliance, a system for enterprise ISR data sharing.
Octo adds roughly 130 personnel to its roster, primarily full-stack and cloud engineering resources. Octo now offers nearly 700 technologists to support and accelerate modernization efforts across its entire public sector customer base. The acquisition of Connexta adds offices in Boston, Denver, and Phoenix and makes Octo a firm with international reach through contracts supporting strategic coalition partners in Europe, Asia, and Australia.
â€œWeâ€™re adding a team that shares the same commitment to customer success that we do, and weâ€™re only going to enhance these qualities as we integrate,â€ Sanghani continued. â€œConnextaâ€™s culture also dovetails perfectly with Octoâ€™s, which will only help make integrating our two firms smoother and allow us to maintain our unique culture in the marketplace.â€
