Milwaukee-based Rockwell Automation Inc. said Monday it had acquired Texas-based AVATA, a provider of supply chain management, enterprise resource planning and enterprise performance management solutions. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Rockwell described AVATA as a leading consultant and systems for Oracle cloud software applications with significant domain expertise in enterprise applications. “Welcoming AVATA into our portfolio is another example of our strategy to bolster our technology and consulting capabilities to better serve our customers with cloud-native solutions that are easy to implement, use, and maintain,” said Frank Kulaszewicz, senior vice president, lifecycle services for Rockwell Automation. “Manufacturers are increasingly seeking resiliency, agility, and sustainability in their supply chain and operations and are adopting cloud solutions to accelerate their efforts. AVATA augments our ability to provide our customers access to a leading portfolio of cloud solutions for enabling digital transformation.” AVATA will be integrated with Kalypso, part of Rockwell’s lifecycle services business. Kalypso and AVATA had previously announced a formal partnership in March. “Joining Kalypso and Rockwell Automation will allow us to help even more companies use digital transformation initiatives to drive value and competitive advantage throughout the extended supply chain. We’re excited for what the future holds for our clients and our combined team,” said Anil Thomas, chief executive officer of AVATA.
