Spaulding Ridge, a global cloud advisory and implementation firm, announced that it has acquired CIS Consulting, a leading data & analytics solutions and corporate performance management (CPM) company located in Spain. Effective February 17, 2022, the acquisition of CIS Consulting extends Spaulding Ridge’s offerings to accelerate digital transformation for leading organizations across Europe.
CIS Consulting was founded in 2008 with a mission of delivering advanced cloud solutions to its clients across Europe and Latin America while maintaining an inclusive environment that fosters a culture of teamwork and diversity. Spaulding Ridge will leverage CIS’s strategic relationships with Looker, Google, Snowflake, OneStream, and AWS to provide clients with more comprehensive data & analytics and CPM solutions.
“The acquisition of CIS Consulting is the second in a series of acquisitions that will increase the global scale and technical depth for our clients, particularly within EMEA,” says Jay Laabs, Spaulding Ridge CEO. “CIS Consulting offers a strong level of technical expertise in data-led transformations, as well as a global CPM presence. This will undoubtedly bring significant value to all our clients.”
“Spaulding Ridge is a perfect match for CIS, as we are closely aligned from our business and culture standpoints,” says Alejandro De La Concha, Managing Partner of CIS Consulting. “We bring a deep foundation in cloud native analytical solutions that – with Spaulding Ridge – will enable organizations to accelerate their ability to gain insights into their needs leveraging a modern data stack. This merger will provide an opportunity for our team members to thrive in an organization that shares our values.”
Spaulding Ridge has been increasing its global investments to provide local services in more areas, by building regional teams in Calgary, Toronto, London, Paris, Stockholm, Jaipur, Naga, Sydney, and now Barcelona and Madrid. The 26-person CIS team will now operate under the name of ‘Spaulding Ridge’, benefiting from all the resources of a global organization as they continue to design, implement, and maintain modern analytics architecture from their offices in Madrid and Barcelona.
