As the Founder and Chief Technologist of Nebbia Technology, I am thrilled that Nebbia has joined New Signature. This acquisition, which we announced on Monday, unites two of Microsoft’s top partners into one cloud-native powerhouse, creating amazing opportunities for our teams and customers.
When I started in September 2014, my goal was to build a company of top professionals working in a great environment with the latest tools, delivering exceptional results. And I’m proud to say that we’ve succeeded. It is this outstanding team that now joins New Signature.
Cloud-first from day one, Nebbia has always partnered with our customers to help them move to the cloud and get the most out of their investment, enabling them to deliver more value through DevOps and Azure. We are a Microsoft gold-certified partner with a specialist team of Azure and DevOps consultants, and in 2018 we were a global finalist for the Microsoft DevOps Partner of the Year.
So, what brought us together with New Signature? It all started several months ago when I sat down to chat with New Signature’s CEO, Jeff Tench. During that conversation, it became clear that both of our companies have similar cultures and goals. Both exist to help our customers realize their potential, get to the cloud, and understand how to leverage it to transform their business and deliver value to their own customers. Jeff and I quickly saw that joining forces would mean tremendous opportunity for our teams and our customers.
For the Nebbia team, it means that we get to join a larger organization with like-minded people who are curious, innovative, and dedicated to providing outstanding customer experiences and building authentic relationships. We will bring our DevOps and cloud-first mindset to complement New Signature’s existing skills and we will share our approach to helping customers get to Azure. We are just starting to get to know our new colleagues and we’re already learning that the New Signature team members are incredible. I am proud to call them my co-workers.
For our customers, this acquisition means that they will have access to more resources, capabilities, and information. We typically help our customers move their applications to the cloud, skipping IaaS and going directly to PaaS, Serverless, or containers, all with a DevOps mindset. Being part of the New Signature team allows us to help our customers with their entire cloud implementation, from identity to Office 365, Dynamics, infrastructure, and more. Additionally, New Signature’s Global Managed Services can help our customers operate beyond the initial implementation. Our Microsoft Gold competencies in DevOps, Application Development, and Cloud Platform will be augmented by New Signature’s Microsoft Gold competencies in Application Development, Cloud Customer Relationship Management, Cloud Platform, Cloud Productivity, Collaboration and Content, Communications, Data Analytics, Datacenter, Enterprise Mobility Management, Messaging, Small and Midmarket Cloud Solutions, Windows and Devices, and Project and Portfolio Management. Our geographic reach will also expand, with New Signature’s offices in Washington DC, Atlanta, Toronto, London, South Africa, and the Philippines (and now, also Orlando – Nebbia’s home base).
For me personally, this means pushing forward with the thought leadership and delivery approach that got us here. I want to continue evolving our DevOps capabilities, delivering through metrics-based decisions, and helping our customers evolve their delivery practices. DevOps is the catalyst for enterprise agility and it enables companies to not just get to Azure but to continue delivering value early and often. I will continue working hard to help the industry and our customers achieve their capabilities. We are going to learn from the best and use our new capabilities and updated delivery model to come up with innovative ways to help our customers get the most out of their Azure experience and investment. Nebbia exists to help our customers realize their potential, and that will continue now that we are part of New Signature. You will see us helping companies continue their DevOps journey and enabling their delivery through Azure PaaS, Serverless, and containers, in a repeatable and measurable way.
This is an exciting time for all of us and we look forward to continuing the Nebbia journey as part of the New Signature family!
