The rapidly growing group has launched several successful brands, including cloud expert and data and AI specialist GoDataDriven. By acquiring Oblivion, Xebia emphasizes its focus on cloud services and continues to expand in line with its strategy.

"Oblivion provides our clients with a clear point of contact for everything AWS-related. I think they are the most experienced AWS partner in the Benelux, really living and breathing every aspect of Amazon Web Services. In the short time that we have been working together, our customers have already experienced the added value of their expertise," adds Bart Verlaat, CEO of
