Dimension Data has acquired London-based SAP partner e2y to bolster its digital business solutions offering.
e2y implements digital commerce platforms for its global customers and also counts Amazon Web Services and Rackspace among its partners.
Laurent Christen, CEO of e2y, said: "The digitisation of goods and services disrupts established business models and existing value chains, enabling new models to emerge.
"e2y is a pioneer in digital innovation for commerce and marketplaces. We deliver solutions for our clients aiming to improve their customer experience and achieve growth.
"We're excited to be joining forces with Dimension Data to help our clients benefit from enhanced digital commerce capabilities and transform their businesses."
Dimension Data said e2y's UK and European business will complement its existing solutions.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but Dimension Data said it has acquired a "majority stake" in e2y.
Scott Gibson, group executive for digital business solutions at Dimension Data, said: "With the future of commerce being firmly focused on the experience of trading online, and our digital business solutions portfolio centred on driving innovation for our clients, our investment in e2y will bring our clients closer to their customers on these advanced commercial platforms.
"It will also help us continue to guide our clients along their business transformation journeys.
"The strength of e2y in the UK and Europe, combined with Dimension Data's presence in the Middle East and Africa, the Americas and Asia-Pacific, will open up new markets for our clients to leverage a truly compelling digital commerce solution."
