IBM said it will acquire Nordcloud, a Helsinki-based company that focuses on cloud integration in Europe.
Terms of the deal weren’t disclosed, but IBM said the purchase advances its cloud migration services and tools.
Nordcloud is triple certified in Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Microsoft Azure.
For IBM, Nordcloud will help it with EU-based cloud deals as well as managed services that’ll plug into its hybrid cloud efforts, which are led by Red Hat. The purchase comes as IBM is positioning itself to be primarily a hybrid cloud software provider. IBM said it will separate its technology services unit so it can be an independent company.
