Kony Solutions Inc. will acquire Sky Technologies, an SAP-certified mobility solutions provider based in Melbourne, Australia. The company said the acquisition will bring together Sky’s enterprise expertise and installed base of SAP mobile customers with Kony’s award-winning mobile and multichannel application platform, packaged mobile applications and mobile application management (MAM) solutions. The result is intended to enable corporations to accelerate time-to-revenue and time-to-market by harnessing highly efficient mobile technologies for both business-to-consumer (B2C) and business-to-employee (B2E) applications.

According to the press release, the Sky acquisition enables Kony to offer a broader range of B2E solutions, including certified integration with SAP environments, and SAP customers could benefit from Sky’s domain expertise in B2E environments as well as its ability to deploy from inside SAP.

“This move makes Kony Solutions the undisputed mobile and multichannel application platform leader, with a strong roster of customers of all sizes, across multiple industries and regions," said Raj Koneru, CEO of Kony Solutions. "By combining forces with Sky, Kony enables our customers to partner with a single provider for all their mobility and multichannel needs. Our mobile solutions not only manage the mobile demands of millions of consumers who want to interact with a brand on-the-go, across a myriad of devices, but also the complex requirements of the workforce.”

Sky Technologies customers could benefit from Kony’s pre-built B2C and B2E applications, multichannel application platform, and its mobile application management/mobile device management solutions.

“Sky Technologies and Kony share a customer-centric approach and dedication to delivering the world’s best mobile experience and technology through constant innovation and a focus on delivering enterprise-grade mobile solutions to businesses,” said Troy O’Connor, CEO and co-founder of Sky Technologies. “It is a compelling combination and great news for all those wanting to offer innovative multichannel and mobile solutions to billions of users, not only in the United States, but also worldwide. It also extends our existing offering to Sky customers who want to mobilize their Siebel, Peoplesoft, Microsoft Sharepoint and other non-SAP environments.”

Sky Technologies is an SAP partner and has more than 100 Global 2000 customers using its technology to mobilize SAP in B2E applications.
