Management consulting firm Avasant today announced its acquisition of selection, price comparison, and technology solutions procurement platform Strativa.
The acquisition is expected to expand Avasant’s data warehouse of IT vendor and product information, further enhancing Avasant’s consulting offerings, which include vendor selection services and RadarView market assessments.
“With the Strativa acquisition, we are launching the world’s largest platform and repository of software and technology data with over 2,000 vendors covered,” said Avasant’s CEO, Kevin S. Parikh.
Avasant said it will use Strativa as its analytics platform to support the selection of best-fit technology solutions for its clients. From enterprise software evaluation to cloud deployment options, this acquisition will provide real data-driven insights to help buyers make independent technology choices.
The Strativa deal comes after Avasant’s recent acquisition of Computer Economics. Frank Scavo, Avasant Partner and President of Computer Economics, said, “Data driven decision-making is no longer optional. Clients want real metrics before making critical business decisions.”
Akshay Khanna, Global Lead for Avasant Labs added, “We welcome the Strativa team with their in-depth experience in the early stages of technology selection, where clients are looking for unbiased data and advice for understanding their options. Strativa’s wealth of knowledge in the enterprise systems marketplace will be a terrific complement to Avasant’s existing Research and Data solutions including AvaMark, AvaSense, Computer Economics, RadarView, and Global Equations.
