The acquisition of oXya is expected to close by the end of March and is subject to customary closing conditions.
Upon the close of the acquisition, oXya, with more than 500 employees, will become a wholly owned subsidiary of HDS and will continue to execute its current business model under company VP and chairman, Frederic de Belloy, reporting to Hicham Abdessamad, HDS executive vice president, Global Services.
oXya helps IT organizations manage private and hybrid cloud environments, and designs the infrastructure for implementations of SAP solutions, including the company’s HANA platform.

“Today’s partners and customers demand as-a-service options that enable them to keep pace with market dynamics like cloud, while transforming the way they conduct business,” said Abdessamad. “oXya offers an expanded set of application-as-a-service offerings, both in private cloud and hybrid cloud. They have vast experience with managing large SAP solution-based environments and a history of excellent customer satisfaction.”
