Ulwembu, a South African black-owned management consulting and ICT services company, has bought a stake in JumpCo Consulting.
JumpCO Consulting is a professional service and software product business focused on delivering digital economy-ready enterprise solutions in integration and business process management (BPM), cloud and container technology, app development and DevOps.
Established in 2000, JumpCO is a gold IBM and premier Red Hat business partner and solution provider.
The partnership is a collaboration of the best of both companies, with Ulwembu taking a definitive step into the IBM services and product market, and JumpCO broadening its reach and consulting offering through Ulwembu’s existing traction within the digital transformation of local public and private organisations.
The transaction further solidifies JumpCO as a proudly South African service provider now as a majority percent black-owned company.
“JumpCO’s excellent IBM capabilities were of particular interest to us, as they make for a good fit with Ulwembu’s ongoing transformation as a fully-fledged systems integrator, providing an end-to-end offering to clients,” Ulwembu managing director, Sibusiso Kunene, said.
“JumpCO brings with it a wealth of meaningful expertise to the Ulwembu group.”
Founded just over a decade ago in 2007, Ulwembu offers support and ICT solutions for firms in South Africa that are looking to undergo digital transformation. Services offered by the firm run through the entire supply chain, and include enterprise development strategies through streamlining.
Structurally, the firm is divided into two divisions, namely Technology Services and Business Services. The former includes aspects such as ICT infrastructure, systems integration, systems automation, e-health, and even networking & cabling. The latter delves into enterprise programme development, business process outsourcing, organisational design, and general management consulting.
