Digital Transformation Drive: DXC Technology Acquires Virtual Clarity

Virtual Clarity provides DXC Technology with a wide range of digital transformation services including legacy applications migration to the cloud with industry specific application development.

DXC Technology Friday stepped up its digital transformation services offensive by acquiring cloud migration solution provider Virtual Clarity.

DXC Technology declined to provide further details beyond its original announcement citing the company's quiet period before it reports its second fiscal quarter 2020 today.

Virtual Clarity, with offices in London and New York, offers a portfolio of services focused on helping businesses better understand their data and how to use it to help them provide more effective IT services.

Tysons, Virg.-based DXC plans to use Virtual Clarity to expand its ability to provide IT modernization services and improve its ability to assess, design, and manage customers' cloud transformations.

It builds on DXC's acquisition earlier this year of Switzerland-based digital consultancy Luxoft. DXC plans to combine its cloud and application engineering services and strategic partnerships with Virtual Clarity’s IT modernization capabilities to help enterprises accelerate their digital transformation, harness technology to improve efficiencies at scale, and drive business innovation, the company said.

Virtual CLarity has four main parts to its portfolio:

ClearInsight uses data analytics and other tools to undersotand data inter-dependencies and create actionable intelligence using a client's existing data sources, all delivered in the cloud or on-premises.

ClearFoundation is a service that provides a tailored plan of action and business case based on an in-depth understanding of a client's current situation and hoped-for outcomes.

ClearTransformation helps clients design effective IT services to implement digital transformation leveraging existing investments and support from Virtual Clarity's partners.

ClearMigration helps clients move from their legacy systems to modern IT services.

Virtual Clarity is a solid fit with DX's growth strategy with proven expertise in IT transformation and cloud migration, said Mike Salvino, the new CEO of DXC, in a prepared statement.

"The company complements and enhances DXC’s capabilities in cloud, platforms and IT modernization, enabling DXC to help our clients with their digital transformation journey and improve their business outcomes," Salvino said.

DXC and Virtual Clarity are not strangers to each other. The two have worked together on several projects in the past, including moving several thousand applications for a fortune 200 bank holding company to a hybrid cloud while clearing up long-standing regulatory concerns, accelerate IT application modernization for a major North American commercial bank, and migrate 7,000 applications to the public cloud for a Fortune 100 telecommunications leader.

DXC since its foundation has made multiple acquisitions. Virtual Clarity is its second acquisition just this month following last week's acquisition of Australia-based Bluleader, which focuses on customer experience in SAP and Microsoft deployments.
