DiData bought the stake from a consortium made up of Remgro, Convergence Partners, and Britehouse management.
DiData has held 40% shareholding in Britehouse in 2007 when the company was established.
“Digital transformation is fast becoming a priority among enterprises across the globe. The acquisition of Britehouse boosts our skills and experience in the digital space, and positions the Group well to run our clients’ mission-critical applications through either an on-premise, hosted, or cloud model,” said Brett Dawson, DiData’s Group CEO.
This transaction follows the acquisition of iFACTORY in August.
Britehouse provides digital solutions to African and global organisations, and iFACTORY is an Oracle solutions and services specialist consultancy.
Together with Dimension Data’s existing application services businesses, Britehouse and iFACTORY further augments Dimension Data’s strong enterprise capabilities in the Middle East and Africa region.
