Kony to Acquire Mobility Solutions Provider

— August 21, 2012

Kony Solutions, Inc. announced it will acquire Sky Technologies, an SAP-certified mobility solutions provider based in Melbourne, Australia. The acquisition brings together Sky’s enterprise presence and installed base of SAP mobile customers with Kony’s mobile and multichannel application platform, packaged mobile applications and mobile application management (MAM) solutions. The resulting solution will enable corporations to connect  mobile technologies for both business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-employee (B2E) applications.

This acquisition by Kony comes during a shift in computing to mobile devices, both within the enterprise and among consumers. The company appears to be taking a multichannel approach to their computing strategies, which allows them to deliver solutions across a variety of devices.

"By combining forces with Sky, Kony enables our customers to partner with a single provider for all their mobility and multichannel needs,” said Raj Koneru, CEO of Kony Solutions.

With Sky Technologies, Kony can offer customers a broader range of B2E solutions, including certified integration with SAP environments. SAP customers in particular can utilize Sky’s ability to deploy from inside SAP and domain expertise in B2E environments. Meanwhile, Sky Technologies customers can now use Kony’s pre-built B2C and B2E applications, its multichannel application platform and its mobile application management and mobile device management solutions.

The acquisition, along with Kony’s existing partnerships with Accenture, Cognizant and IBM, will allow Kony to operate mobility centers in the Americas, Europe, South America, Middle East and Asia and the Pacific. The combined company will continue to provide full support of Sky Technologies’ products to new and current customers, prospects and partners.
