We are excited to share with you that we have recently acquired Go2Group, a US company specialising in DevOps services and cloud solutions for the enterprise. In bringing Go2Group into the fold, we not only benefit from their wealth of expertise in the DevOps space, it means we're now one of the largest Atlassian partners in North America.

Strengthening our foothold in North America and continuously improving digital transformation capabilities—particularly for our enterprise customers—is of utmost importance to us, and this acquisition enables us to do just that.

Why Go2Group?

We understand that the difficulties companies currently face are immense, and the need for new and innovative ways to tackle these challenges has never been greater. We aim to make strategic decisions that allow our clients to accelerate their delivery while maintaining quality as their teams work remotely. Given Go2Group’s strong technical knowledge, and their platinum level partnerships with Atlassian, CloudBees, and AWS, we're now even better placed to help teams across the globe collaborate at scale and deal with change.

With that, this acquisition makes us a newly certified AWS partner—meaning we can offer a seamless transition to the Cloud and the fastest time to value with AWS services for our clients. In other words, we’re now perfectly positioned to ensure our clients get the most from their AWS solutions, whether that’s for migration, maintenance, or both.

As our CEO, Simon Haighton-Williams, neatly sums up, “Around the world, radical change has become business-as-usual. Change and uncertainty is causing many US businesses to grapple with slower growth, disruption from new competition, and pressure from internal sources. Software used in the right way can be a lifeline. Adaptavist, coupled with Go2Group, delivers the in-depth consulting and technical support needed for enterprises to optimise their IT investments and thrive in this fast-paced, digitally transforming environment.

Welcome aboard

What’s more, we’re delighted to be welcoming twenty-five new Adaptavist employees joining us from Go2Group—a 33% increase in our headcount in North America. As a nice aside, this now means we have two Atlassian community super users, in our ranks at Adaptavist. Our own Managing Consultant, Nic Brough, will be joined by Jobin Kuruvilla, Director of Technical Services at Go2Group and between them, they will continue to use their unparalleled expertise to help people in the Atlassian ecosystem.

We are humbled to be in a position to grow our company during these challenging times and hope that with more collaboration, we can help deliver best-in-class software and services that help your teams thrive. If you’re interested in learning more about this acquisition, you can check out our press release, or, as always reach out to our team.
