PRESS RELEASE: CSC announced it has closed the acquisition of Aspediens, one of Europe’s leading providers of technology-enabled solutions for the service management sector. Aspediens will join Fruition Partners, a CSC company, and CSC’s worldwide ServiceNow® practice.
The combined strength of Fruition Partners with Aspediens and UXC Keystone gives CSC the scale, reach, industry penetration and extensive skill portfolio to own an extraordinary leadership role in the fast-growing enterprise software-as-a-service (SaaS) market. This makes CSC well positioned to address growing client demand for better, faster and more efficient service management capabilities across process, applications and infrastructure – both traditional and cloud-enabled.
“We welcome the Aspediens team to Fruition Partners and to CSC,” said Jim Smith, executive vice president and general manager, Global Business Services, CSC. “Together, Fruition Partners with Aspediens and UXC Keystone provide enterprise clients with end-to-end support for ServiceNow-related software and solutions, as well as a broader range of professional service management offerings. CSC is at the forefront of helping modern enterprises optimize technology to manage work, giving our clients access to an expanded range of XaaS capabilities.”
Michel Regueiro, CEO of Aspediens, stated, “Being a part of a world-leading ServiceNow integrator is a significant step forward for the Aspediens family and our loyal clients, who gain a stronger resource base, access to exclusive IP, and extensive industry expertise among many other benefits. We are very excited to join CSC and Fruition Partners, and look forward to bringing our talent and relationships to this growing global practice.”
Marc Talluto, co-founder of Fruition Partners, said: “We are thrilled to accelerate our global growth with the addition of the Aspediens team in Europe. Over the years we have gotten to know each other well. Our cultural match, shared vision and capabilities for Enterprise Service Management on the ServiceNow platform will benefit our customers in mainland Europe and around the world.”
Regueiro will continue to lead the Aspediens team and will report to Talluto, who leads CSC’s global ServiceNow practice and reports to Smith. With headquarters in Switzerland, Aspediens has operations in Germany, France and Spain.
“Adding Aspediens to its ServiceNow practice underscores CSC’s commitment to creating the leading global services practice in the enterprise service management space, and to leveraging the promise of a world-class partner ecosystem,” noted David Schneider, CRO of ServiceNow, in CSC’s May 23 announcement of its intent to acquire Aspediens. “Aspediens is a trusted partner of ServiceNow in Europe with excellent customer satisfaction scores, and we expect that our shared customers will benefit from the addition to CSC’s global ServiceNow portfolio.”
ServiceNow, at its Annual Global PartnerNow Summit, recognized Fruition Partners as having the highest number of ServiceNow deployments in 2015.
