SoftwareONE Holding AG has announced that it has acquired BNW Consulting, and states the strategic decision will enable the company to extend its SAP capabilities on public cloud hyperscalers.

BNW is a specialist in SAP platform transformation, public cloud migration and application management services.

The investment contributes to SoftwareONE's broader strategy, and proposes to strengthen the group's SAP Technology Services capabilities focused on public cloud migrations, S/4 HANA transformation and support. This is one area of strategic importance for customers and expected growth for SoftwareONE, according to the company.

Warwick Chai, founder and managing director of BNW, and Stefan Baumann, co-owner and chief operating officer, will join Daniel Da Vinci, SoftwareONEs SAP global practice director, in leadership roles.

SoftwareONE CEO Dieter Schlosser says, “We welcome BNWs 30+ SAP technology specialists, who will significantly enhance SoftwareONE's global SAP and Technology Services capability, in our group. Our new colleagues will service their customers in APAC and the US, and beyond, in close conjunction with the established Manila SAP Center of Excellence.

Founded in 1996 and based in Melbourne, BNW is a technology and cloud consulting company specialising in services around SAP platform transformation and migration from on-premises to public cloud hyperscale platforms, such as Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform, and Ali Cloud.

In addition, BNW offers organisations its proprietary SAP-certified tool, PowerConnect, that provides analytical insights into SAP performance data across on-premise and cloud infrastructures as well as security and business process data.
