TMG enhances its Utility Industry Leadership Position by Acquiring Leading Data Science & Conversion Firm MAK Solutions.
TMG announced today the acceleration and expansion of its Professional Services Capabilities and Intellectual Property offerings to utilities and partners with its strategic acquisition of MAK Solutions, a leading independent information technology firm providing functional, technical, consultative, and management services spanning the entire lifecycle of packaged and custom software applications. MAK Solutions has also provided data analysis, conversion services, and licensable products to the Utility industry for over twenty years. This acquisition is a significant milestone for TMG as it continues to enhance and expand its already-robust Utility Customer and related Systems products and solutions to accelerate project delivery and professional services competency globally.
TMG has successfully partnered with MAK, a leading data transformation/conversion organization, over the last few years. This addition to the TMG family will significantly benefit TMG and its clients. MAK has over 22 years of serving utilities and brings a wealth of Intellectual Property to TMG, including Tools, Accelerators, Pre-Conversion Data Analysis, and Data Hygiene and Transformation Products. MAK also brings senior staff, averaging over 25 years of experience in roles that include Data Science, Data Analysis, Data Conversion, Production Support, Data Management, and Data Migration. MAK’s service delivery capabilities align with and extend TMG’s Professional Services for solution implementations, upgrades, archive/purge, warehousing, and complex conversions for on-premises and cloud environments. In addition, MAK has successfully completed 10 Oracle Utility data migrations to date, including the first 3 CCS migrations. MAK also brings extensive Banner application competency to TMG.
“MAK has been in the industry for well over two decades now and brings the references, tools, people, and stellar reputation that will make TMG even stronger in the future. TMG has been steadily growing our Professional Services offerings around Oracle and SAP. This acquisition expands our offerings and focuses on providing end-to-end solutions to our clients,” said Mario Bauer, Chief Executive Officer of TMG. “Working with MAK Solutions since 2009, they bring strong technical consultants with proven tools and accelerators. They underscore TMG’s focus on continuing investment in product/accelerators to shorten implementation timelines and increase quality,” said Pam Glanvill - TMG’s President & Global Head of Professional Services. Scott Ainsworth, MAK Solutions’ President, and Steve Margolis, VP of Services, commented, “This is a coming together of like-minded firms, where our products, services, and teams complement the TMG brand and offerings to the market.”
