*UKHotViewsExtra* Did HPE make a success of the RedPixie acquisition?

hpeA little over a year ago, HPE announced its acquisition of London-based RedPixie with the intention of deepening its capabilities in cloud consulting, app development and services for migrating workloads to the public cloud. Competition to buy the small Shoreditch-based company was intense as RedPixie had made a name for itself as a Microsoft Azure specialist. red

The acquisition was part of HPE’s broader strategy to build out capabilities in hybrid IT, and followed the purchases of Cloud Cruiser (technology to track, measure, and control cloud usage) and Cloud Technology Partners (services to move clients to/operate in the cloud - including its own IP) in 2017.

Acquisitions such as RedPixie can, however, be very risky – something HPE was well aware of. Often the greatest challenge with small transactions by large players is that they fizzle to nothing, usually as the core hub of talent decides it doesn’t like corporate life and departs shortly after the earn-out.

So did the HPE team in the UK get this one right?
