Founded in 2016, BoxBoat Technologies is a technology professional services company offering services to accelerate enterprise adoption of modern DevOps toolchains (Jenkins, Bamboo), container technologies (Docker, Kubernetes), and cloud solutions (AWS, Azure). BoxBoat’s container experts work with the latest in modern distributed technologies to reduce costs and speed time to market. BoxBoat allows its customers to focus on building their applications instead of building and supporting their DevOps infrastructure.
Recently, IBM announced its plans to acquire BoxBoat Technologies for an undisclosed sum. BoxBoat will extend IBM’s container strategy and implementation services portfolio to further advance IBM’s hybrid cloud strategy and accelerate the global adoption of Red Hat OpenShift. The firm is pivoting to a focus on multi-cloud software that drives business automation – including RPA, process mining, and workflow automation. IBM acknowledges that its clients require a cloud architecture that allows them to operate across a traditional IT environment, private cloud, and public cloud. So, this acquisition makes sense as BoxBoat is at the forefront of container services innovation.
“Our clients require a cloud architecture that allows them to operate across a traditional IT environment, private cloud, and public clouds. That’s at the heart of our hybrid cloud approach. No cloud modernization project can succeed without a containerization strategy, and BoxBoat is at the forefront of container services innovation.”
John Granger, SVP of Hybrid Cloud Services, IBM
“We founded BoxBoat on the idea that containers and DevOps would become an industry standard with the potential to transform enterprise IT with lightning-fast application deployment workflows. Joining IBM will allow us to realize a shared vision of helping clients innovate by successfully deploying container-based applications on-premise and to the cloud.”
