Konica Minolta announced the acquisition of Nextagenda, a specialist in data-driven services within Business Intelligence (BI) and Customer Relationship Management (CRM). The company is based in Copenhagen and Aarhus, Denmark, and has succeeded in building a portfolio of services that complement the offerings of Konica Minolta in Northern Europe.
Konica Minolta said it is on a targeted journey towards becoming a 360-degree partner in all types of data-driven services. Especially in Northern Europe, this has resulted in significant growth and an influx of customers in completely new market segments. This acquisition is a logical step and an interesting addition of new competencies that can add further value to customer solutions, Konica Minolta stated.
An agreement was signed on 11 October and both parties are looking forward to capitalising on the new synergy, the press release stated.
Nextagenda was founded five years ago on the belief that data represents the true value of the future. The company has built substantial competencies in the fields of business intelligence, advanced analytics, data warehousing, machine learning, IoT and CRM. Nextagenda is a certified Microsoft Gold Partner on data analytics and cloud platform and in recognition of its steep growth rate, Nextagenda received a Gazelle Award 2019 from the Danish business newspaper Børsen.
“We have succeeded in attracting skilled employees and experts with key knowledge that can give Konica Minolta’s solutions extra impact,” said Mads Rørdam and is supplemented by his Nextagenda Co-Partner Morten Wesenberg, who added: “Therefore, we are pleased that the business will continue unchanged under the new ownership.”
“First and foremost, this is exciting news for our customers because we can now offer an extra, data-driven dimension to our IT-solutions. A dimension that not only complements our overall IT-portfolio, but also puts us in the driver´s seat with regards to the potential to let the countries in northern Europe take the lead, when it comes to digital transformation. IT Services has been the driving force behind the acquisition of Nextagenda.” said Lars Wørzner, Managing Director Konica Minolta Northern Europe.
