Sentia has acquired fellow Dutch-Danish MSP Ymor in a bid to become the European market leader in managed services for complex and business-critical cloud applications.
Based in the Netherlands, Sentia was one of Europe's first Azure Expert MSPs. It is also an Advanced-level partner with AWS.
Ymor, meanwhile, claims to be an application performance specialist, partnering with Splunk, ExtraHop, Nexthink, AppDynamics and Dynatrace.
Ymor is made up of 90 specialists based in Utrecht, in the Netherlands, and in Copenhagen, Denmark. The MSP specialises in application performance management, IT operations analytics and AI operations.
Sentia's CEO and co-founder Ian Zein said customers are increasingly seeing software as "the core of the organisation", and subsequently needing hybrid cloud architectures for their applications.
"The acquisition of Ymor underlines Sentia's focus on mission-critical applications and our advanced solutions," he said.
"Application performance monitoring is already part of what we do and with Ymor we will be able to increase the scale and possibilities of our solutions even more."
He added: "The fact that Ymor and Sentia are both active in the Benelux and Denmark makes this transaction even more logical."
Ymor is the latest in a string of Danish acquisitions for Sentia.
At the start of this year it acquired Hosters, Athena and Cohaesio in Denmark; all AWS and Azure MSPs targeting the enterprise market.
The managed services and hosting firm first landed in Denmark in 2016, with a double acquisition of Solido and Jaynet.
Sentia started off as a AWS partner itself, but has told CPI it now considers Microsoft as its primary public cloud vendor.
It's owned by private equity house Waterland Investments, which claims that the MSP logged revenues of €95m for its FY2018.
It has a headcount of around 575, with 280 based in the Netherlands and the rest dispersed across Denmark, Belgium and Bulgaria.
Some say performance, others say money but it may be systems and processes that carry the day
