June 30, 2020: 3Cloud Receives Growth Equity from Gryphon Investors
July 30, 2020: 3Cloud Acquires Applied Cloud Services
September 9, 2020: 3Cloud Acquires Pragmatic Works Consulting
From June through September, 3Cloud went from about 70 people to 170. We are now the largest Azure “pure-play” consulting company in the United States. And this is just the beginning…
So, what are my thoughts on this?
I am truly excited about the opportunity to grow a consulting company that is focused on Azure. Sure there is a lot of change, but change is not bad. As we bring our three companies together to become one, there are challenges and successes. All of us have already benefited from the merging of skills and teams to create a more complete solution team for our customers.
I look forward to seeing how we evolve over the next few months and years. Exciting times are ahead!
While working for a data centric company like Pragmatic Works was great, the shift to cloud technologies and Azure data services required us to expand our capabilities beyond data and SQL Server. This merger allows us to immediately add value to our customers by adding application development and infrastructure capabilities to our toolbox. Beyond that, 3Cloud and ACS bring a mature managed services offering including the ability to host and manage customer resources in Azure (CSP).
I think our customers get a significant boost in services as we become a more complete Azure company.
Some Final Thoughts
I will miss working directly with Brian Knight and Tim Moolic, two of the founding partners at Pragmatic Works. Their vision helped shape a great organization over 12 years. In case you did not realize it, Pragmatic Works will continue on as a training organization. You can still expect excellent technical training from the team there. We all will continue to learn and grow with their support.
