Ericsson has acquired software provider Sentilla as it looks to boost its services to companies that are embracing cloud and mobility solutions. 

Sentilla’s IT infrastructure intelligence software provides data gathering, performance monitoring and policy engine and reporting to help IT firms overcome “network complexities” introduced by new technologies, such as cloud and mobility services.

Ericsson said it hopes the acquisition will enhance its cloud and analytics portfolio, which provides support for advanced data centre and cloud management solutions, and strengthen the vendor’s capabilities in IT managed services.

Sentilla will be incorporated into Ericsson’s Support Solutions business unit. The acquisition, financial details of which were not disclosed, includes all of Sentilla’s employees.

Elisabetta Romano, Vice President of Ericsson Support Services, said: "As more businesses leverage mobility and cloud-based applications, the unique combination of automation and just-in-time intelligence that we can provide enables necessary agility and responsiveness, [increasing] operational and financial efficiency.”

Mike Kaul, Sentilla CEO, added: "By combining our capabilities with key Ericsson offerings, we can support dynamic optimisation of workloads across physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures, including constantly changing data centre environments. This functionality is imperative for service providers that want to continue to deliver a compelling enterprise offering."

Earlier this month, Ericsson acquired smart grid communications provider Ambient to enable the vendor to provide managed services for energy suppliers as they transformed infrastructure into smart grids.
