Cloud Solutions Group (CSG), a specialist systems integrator and cloud consulting firm, will aim to assist Deloitte in delivering clients next generation technologies, such as virtualised and cloud infrastructure.


Kevin Russo, technology consulting partner at Deloitte, noted that the acquisition serves as an important building block for Deloitte Consulting’s technology practice as it attempts to keep pace with the burgeoning cloud market.

“The transaction with CSG confirms the rapid growth of cloud technologies and how effective CSG has been at disrupting the market,” Mr Russo stated.

“It enables us to build on our current model for cloud and infrastructure advisory services, to include implementation and managed cloud-based solutions,” he added.

Mr Russo noted that Deloitte is now capable of offering clients business-driven technology solutions hosted on “next generation hybrid cloud services”.

Josh Rubens, chief executive of CSG, spoke of his excitement about joining forces with the big four firm.

“It provides us with the opportunity to leverage its infrastructure to support business growth. Deloitte’s brand, scale and breadth of services provide access to a broader set of offerings and value for our clients, as well as opportunities for career advancement for our staff and increased potential to grow their careers,” he said.

As a result of the acquisition, Mr Rubens will become a Deloitte partner, with fellow CSG directors and staff joining Deloitte in Melbourne.

The move follows the previous acquisitions by Deloitte of Dataweave, and identity management firm Qubit.
