DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC), an end-to-end IT services company, has acquired Bluleader, an Australian consulting company focused on delivering customer experience (CX) solutions.

“This combination will enable us to leverage DXC’s market presence, intellectual property and expertise to expand the size and scale of Bluleader as part of DXC Oxygen’s integrated practice,” he said. 

Bluleader was recently awarded SAP 2019 CX Partner of the Year ANZ and 2019 CX Partner of the Year APJ.

DXC Technology Australia and New Zealand managing director, Seelan Nayagam, said the acquisition of Bluleader is an integral part of DXC’s commitment to continue to grow and invest in SAP-based customer experience solutions and more broadly in SAP Practice, with the joint strategic goal of achieving the position as the number one SAP partner in Australia and New Zealand.

Determining our Humanity

‘Business as unusual’ is a term my organisation has adopted to describe the professional aftermath of COVID-19 and the rest of the tragic events this year. Social distancing, perspex screens at counters and masks in all manner of situations have introduced us to a world we were never familiar with. But, as we keep being reminded, this is the new normal. This is the world we created. Yet we also have the opportunity to create something else.
