Ensono is boosting its cloud-native software engineering capabilities with the acquisition of UK consultancy Amido.

Ensono described the purchase as “a turning point” for the company, which enables it to create and support clients’ cloud-built applications. It said it would be “one of the few companies” that can manage customers’ IT estates across mainframe, private and public cloud.

Amido provides cloud-native consultancy, strategy, design, architecture and engineering. Employing more than 130 people, the company specializes in using cloud-native, data and intelligent technologies. Notably, it delivers applications and services to help clients transition from legacy tech to a hybrid or tailored cloud-based system. This includes delivering insights from unstructured data using automation, AI, machine learning and predictive analytics.
