We are pleased to share an exciting milestone for Melbourne IT. To accelerate our mission of becoming Australia's market leader in cloud and mobile solutions, Melbourne IT has acquired 50.2% of privately owned Outware Systems Pty Ltd (Outware Mobile), with options in place to acquire up to 100% of the company over the next two years.

Outware Mobile is Australia's leading mobile application developer and the business has enjoyed impressive growth, achieved from its deep expertise in mobile application design and development, and its skills in delivering elegant, high quality mobile experiences with a strong focus on customer service.
Melbourne IT will offer integrated management services and additional account management support across Outware Mobile solutions, while Outware Mobile capabilities will be offered to existing Melbourne IT customers to ensure the most effective solutions are delivered to meet our customers' objectives.
As our customers' requirements become more targeted and sophisticated, we need to ensure that our solutions are extensive and comprehensive. This acquisition sees Melbourne IT expand its cloud development skills into complementary mobile services and solutions, helping our customers outpace their competitors.
Outware Mobile and Melbourne IT have already worked closely together on projects and will be able to provide our customers with a broader, more sophisticated suite of enterprise grade cloud and mobile enabled solutions.
This agreement follows the recently announced partnership between Melbourne IT and US based 2nd Watch to deliver a range of data centre migration services to the cloud and increase our customers' innovation rates.
This is an exciting new chapter in Melbourne IT's growth and we look forward to discussing how we can help you and your organisation achieve your digital transformation goals.
