NEEN has strong vertical expertise in Distributed Cloud and represents a solid opportunity to increase the value of the solutions offered to customers
Forlì, July 10 2023 – VEM sistemi, a system integrator based in Forlì, has finalised the acquisition of NEEN S.p.A., a Managed Cloud Provider specialised in the design, implementation and management of distributed, high-reliability infrastructures. NEEN is one of the first in Italy to have expertise in elastic systems and to introduce the Cloud in the management of IT services.
This acquisition is part of the Merge & Acquisition strategy that VEM Group designed several years ago, which includes targeted acquisitions in technology areas that are complementary or adjacent to the areas in which the group operates. NEEN is a ‘cloud services boutique’ that has strong competencies in distributed cloud. Therefore, the acquisition represents a strengthening and synergic extension of expertise and customers that the VEM Group has long considered a necessary step to strengthen and accelerate its presence in strategic market and technology areas, in order to continue to be increasingly competitive in the ICT and digital arena in general.
“This acquisition represents a solid base for VEM Group on which to realise the group’s joint investments in the area of cloud technologies, in order to make a real difference in extracting value from the solutions that are proposed to customers on a daily basis in this continuous digital evolution of enterprises” says Stefano Bossi, CEO & GM VEM sistemi. “Today, with the entry of NEEN, we are able to map the entire life cycle of the distributed cloud, from the advisory phase, through design & delivery to operations”.
The acquisition, moreover, is part of a well-defined strategy of the Group, which aims to base the services offered to its customers on four pillars: technology integration with VEM sistemi, cybersecurity with Certego, software development with Mydev, and finally Cloud integration with NEEN.
“VEM’s entry into the share capital of NEEN represents a driving force for the company’s growth.” Continues Marco Zani, CEO and Vice President of NEEN “The company has always focused on innovation and excellence in providing services in the Cloud area. In recent years, as we have taken up new market challenges, we have worked to consolidate the team’s skills in DevOps and automation of microservices infrastructures, skills that we look forward to making available to the VEM group.”
“In the current context, rapid market fluctuations exert strong pressure on the CIOs of every organisation who must rethink ICT infrastructures in a more Cloud-oriented logic. NEEN’s organic entry into the VEM Group extends and accelerates our ability to build software-oriented infrastructures that respond to this new scenario,” concludes Marco Bubani, VEM Sistemi Innovation Director and NEEN President.
NEEN is a company based in Milan with a team of about 20 people, characterised by strong vertical skills. Its objective is to help customers make the best use of the Cloud for the success of their projects, taking care of all aspects, including: customisation and tuning of services tailored to the needs of the project, a strong focus on the industrialisation of processes to guarantee the quality standards required by the market, assistance in the choice and design of solutions supported by the most important public Clouds, and 24/7 certified technical support.
