Delaware buys Aztalan, bolsters SAP services in Belgium and Luxembourg

29 August 2018 2 min. read

Belgian IT services company Delaware has acquired Aztalan, a Ghent-based company specialised in implementing and developing SAP solutions for small and medium-sized companies.

Aztalan, established ten years ago, helps clients in the small and medium-sized company segment with SAP implementations. The firm supports with advisory, customisation, roll-out, training, support and maintenance. 

For Delaware, the bolt-on grows its expertise in SAP solutions and services. Patrick Andersen, General Manager of Delaware Belgium and Luxembourg, explained; “We have grown our SAP practice rapidly in recent years and are always looking for ways to both deepen and broaden our SAP portfolio.” Among the offerings both IT consultancies provide are SAP Cloud ERP, SAP HANA and SAP Business One, as well as propositions for several of SAP’s functional modules.

The move also supports Delaware’s growth strategy for Wallonia, added Andersen, saying, “'Part of the team is French-speaking, just like Aztalan's customers. They are mainly located in the south of Belgium, and with this we expect to be of even better service to our Walloon customers.” Further, the addition grows Delaware’s presence in the Luxembourg market – Aztalan has second office in Luxembourg, which serves local businesses.

As part of the integration, all employees of Aztalan – estimated to be around ten – will transfer to Delaware. With more than 1,750 employees, across 24 offices in 13 countries, of which five are based in Belgium (Antwerp, Ghent, Kortrijk, Wavre, Lummen), Delaware is one of Europe’s larger IT consulting firms. 

Looking ahead, Andersen said he is confident the joining of forces will prove a fruitful one: “The focus of Aztalan on professionalism, quality and support goes hand in hand with the Delaware values: care, respect, commitment, team spirit and entrepreneurship.”

Earlier this year in Belgium’s consulting market, BDO Advisory acquired two digital consultancy companies.
