We’re excited to share the most significant announcement in Bluewolf’s history: we have signed a definitive agreement to join forces with IBM Interactive Experience (IBM iX). IBM iX is a next-generation experience design and digital consultancy, which is part of IBM Global Business Services.
Fifteen years ago, Bluewolf started its consulting practice in New York City, and we set our sights on helping clients achieve extraordinary customer and employee moments across the Salesforce ecosystem. We tied ourselves to this singular goal and the belief that this would be a market changer. We stuck to our strategy under the belief that our core business is transformative and game changing for clients. Now, that market is calling for a global leader.
IBM iX and Bluewolf together provide this global leadership. By joining forces to establish a powerful customer experience practice, we will leverage the capabilities and expertise of both companies. I believe we have the perfect alliance as part of the IBM iX team, sharing our passion, discipline, and desire to create extraordinary moments for all of our clients.
With the ability to deliver innovative solutions in an industry context, IBM iX and Bluewolf will be uniquely capable of creating differentiated customer experiences on the Salesforce platform. This means additional capabilities in experience design, coupled with leading expertise in integrating data, enabling mobility, and driving towards more cognitive solutions for you, and your employees.
Whenever two companies combine, there are lots of questions. We’ll be sharing more with you over the next few weeks. The close of the acquisition is expected in 2Q16 and subject to regulatory review and customary closing conditions, but if there’s anything you’d like to know, please contact us.
