Odiso announces its acquisition by Cyllene, an independent French specialist in Cloud Computing and digital transformation.
Cyllene continues its expansion program with the acquisition of Odiso, an e-commerce hosting specialist. Founded 20 years ago, the Lille-based company, a subsidiary of the M6 Group, provides its customers with consulting and premium services in the field of web hosting and outsourcing. It specializes in high-availability, peak traffic management and application outsourcing for e-commerce professionals.
Odiso allows Cyllene to increase its Cloud Computing offer in the North of France and to specialize its Digital offer for e-commerce players. Ranked 43rd in the IT industry in 2020, Cyllene is now aiming for the top 30.
Olivier Poelaert, President of Cyllene, comments: « With real DevOps, Kubernetes, CEPH or Proxmox skills and a choice of Google Cloud, Odiso shares a common DNA with Cyllene and reinforces or completes our technological sectors while bringing a large panel of Retail players particularly sensitive to our know-how in e-Commerce and CRM. Our future agency in Lille will be led by a dynamic and senior team, a foot in the north of France that looks very, very good.”
Frédéric Vandenbroucke, Director of Odiso, adds: « We are delighted with this new project for the development of Odiso. After 20 years with a media group, joining a company with the same technological DNA and on a human scale as Cyllene seemed like the ideal solution to continue our development. By becoming the Group’s Lille agency, we will be able to bring our specific skills and expertise to Cyllene on the one hand, and on the other hand to develop by offering our clients and prospects a broader range of services than Odiso does today. »
Sophie Pourquéry – Bee Up Capital adds: « After Troyes a year ago, Cyllene is making its second acquisition in the territories, by setting up in Lille while benefiting from real e-commerce expertise thanks to Odiso’s teams. We are continuing the roadmap with one or two other acquisitions that will allow Cyllene to spread throughout the country. »
With Odiso, Cyllene now has more than 440 employees and a turnover of over €60M. Cyllene is now positioned as one of the French leaders in IT services and digital transformation, specializing in infrastructure, hosting and outsourcing and covering the full spectrum of customer needs in terms of consulting, architecture definition, deployment of technologies, particularly applications and web technologies, data, data intelligence, administration and support.
