BCX snaps up RDC Group for undisclosed amount

 

Unlisted tech firm Business Connexion (BCX) has snapped up Relational Database Consulting Group (Pty) Ltd (RDC),  a market leader in database and operating system administration, with a strong focus on Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL and PostgreSQL on a variety of operating systems.

The deal is effective 1 April 2016 and comes after the Telkom-owned tech firm bought ANCO-IT, a company with a strong focus on Oracle applications which has already strengthened BCX’s existing complementary Oracle capabilities.

RDC currently supplies Database, Middleware and Operating System support to Telkom and some of Telkom’s key customers in the datacentre space.

“The acquisition of RDC Group will further enhance our service offerings where the opportunity exists in South Africa and Africa to migrate clients to Oracle’s latest technology. BCX is now positioned to deliver end to end services and solutions across the total Integrated Oracle Stack,” said Vish Rajpal, group executive Business Solutions at RDC.

As the appetite for cloud-based solutions continues to grow, a number of enterprise companies are moving towards engineering hardware and software to simplify IT, making use of the cloud to allow for easy adoption.

Embracing this shift towards cloud adoption, Oracle already showed a thirty percent year-on-year growth on its cloud computing services in 2015. In light of this, and to grow on its existing Oracle capabilities, BCX announced the acquisition of RDC.

Their expanded range of services includes Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Solaris Support and Oracle Sales.

RDC have also been anticipating the shift that Oracle has taken towards cloud-based services and the threat of open source database offerings and have geared themselves for this advent by diversifying its skill set to include cloud-based and open source capabilities as well as competitive technologies.

“This acquisition will further strengthen BCX’s Oracle competence, allowing us to deliver on Oracle’s drive to offer comprehensive cloud services out of a single entity,” says Isaac Mophatlane, CEO of BCX.

“Complimentary to our current strengths in the mining and various other segments, it will further enhance our capabilities in the financial and telecommunication markets.”
