Indra, one of the world's top technology and consulting companies, has acquired Paradigma, a leading consulting firm of digital transformation specializing in the field of ‘digital native’ with ‘agile’ work methodologies and a culture of innovation.
Paradigma completes the value proposition of Minsait, Indra's business unit focused on digital transformation. Minsait and Paradigma present to the market a unique and more comprehensive product and service offering, which covers the digital transformation needs of companies and institutions from end to end, by integrating the business and digital dimensions, as well as the provision of products and services.
Paradigma has a team of more than 400 highly-qualified professionals and experts, as well as a large portfolio of leading clients in their corresponding sectors of activity. The company specializes in the following areas:
- Digital Strategy. Transformation of businesses, re-assessing strategies with technology as the core element and the possibilities it opens.
- Velocity Development. Focuses on helping pre-Internet companies develop their digital solutions with an ‘Internet mindset’, with much more aggressive deadlines and the use of development tools and 'agile' development models that allow them to compete against 'digital natives'.
- Customer Experience. Integrated from the first project stages to ensure that this core product aspect is a key element in the results, from the start of the project.
- AI & Big Data. Response to the need to handle large volumes of information and extracting value from data efficiently.
- Cloud. Optimization of tasks associated with handling the infrastructure and base technologies, allowing companies to become more agile in the development and implementation of applications.
After acquiring Paradigma Digital, Indra has strengthened Minsait's capabilities in 'digital native' environments, based on the use of 'agile' work methodologies, tailored developments with open source software and the adoption of advanced cloud architectures.
The new joint offering includes the following services:
- Business consulting.
- Conceptualization and design of cutting-edge solutions in which the customer experience, automation of operations, big data, artificial intelligence and cyber-security play a leading role.
- Development, implementation and operation of these solutions with a state-of-the-art technology base, which can coexist with 'legacy' technologies.
In addition to the service offering, Minsait's catalog includes proprietary digital products that reduce the time-to-market of transformation initiatives.
The new product and service offering will allow companies and institutions to migrate their information systems and technologies to next-generation architectures in record time, with the purpose of competing under equal conditions with large ‘digital native’ corporations.
“With this operation, Indra has strengthened its position as a leader in digital transformation. There is a high degree of complementarity of the teams of professionals of Minsait and Paradigma, in addition to the perfect fit of their product and service offering, and they bring together a relevant and complementary client base, with leading companies in all business sectors. This opens important opportunities to expand the current commercial and service relations and increases the capacity to attract new clients of the joint teams, while helping us develop and improve our culture and operating model", stated Cristina Ruiz, Indra and IT Business Senior Vice President.
"We are delighted to become part of the Indra Group. Paradigma Digital will operate as a new self-standing business unit and maintain its operating model and culture, based on dynamic management with no formal structures and the commitment to developing top talent and empowering its professionals. In addition, it will be strengthened by Indra's 360º product and service offering, scale, geographical presence and business and operational capacity", assured Ignacio Cabrera, Co-founder of Paradigma.
