Rockwell Automation, Inc. acquired AVATA and then integrate into Kalypso, another Rockwell Automation company.
“Welcoming AVATA into our portfolio is another example of our strategy to bolster our technology and consulting capabilities to better serve our customers with cloud-native solutions that are easy to implement, use, and maintain,” says Frank Kulaszewicz, SVP, lifecycle services for Rockwell Automation. “Manufacturers are increasingly seeking resiliency, agility and sustainability in their supply chain and operations and are adopting cloud solutions to accelerate their efforts. AVATA augments our ability to provide our customers access to a leading portfolio of cloud solutions for enabling digital transformation.”
- By significantly improving end-to-end supply chain visibility and management, AVATA, together with Kalypso, Rockwell’s industrial digital transformation services business, will help further unlock the value of information technology/operational technology (IT/OT) convergence.
- This acquisition will allow Rockwell to further expand its supply chain consulting services to support end-to-end digital transformation solutions across the enterprise and onto the plant floor and then beyond to the extended supply chain.
“The addition of AVATA will strengthen our digital thread capabilities across the value chain,” says George Young, global managing director of Kalypso. “Together through our existing partnership, we are working with manufacturers across a variety of industries to fundamentally change the way we discover, create, make and sell products. This acquisition will only amplify the great results we are already delivering for our clients.”
“Joining Kalypso and Rockwell Automation will allow us to help even more companies use digital transformation initiatives to drive value and competitive advantage throughout the extended supply chain. We’re excited for what the future holds for our clients and our combined team,” says Anil Thomas, CEO of AVATA.
