Amazon Web Services to Acquire NICE
I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new colleagues at NICE. We have signed an agreement to acquire this leading provider of software and services for high performance and technical computing.
Products for HPC
From their headquarters in Asti, Italy, NICE delivers products and solutions to customers all over the world. These products help customers to optimize and centralize their high performance computing (HPC) and visualization workloads while also providing tools that are a great fit for distributed workforces making use of mobile devices.
For Existing Customers
The NICE brand and team will remain intact and will continue to develop and support the EnginFrame and Desktop Cloud Visualization (DCV) products. Customers will continue to receive world-class support and services, enhanced with the backing of the AWS team. Going forward, NICE and AWS will work together to create even better tools and services.
Still Day 1
As Jeff Bezos often says, it is still day 1 and we don’t have all of the answers yet. However, I did want to share this news with you and let you know that we are looking forward to meeting and working with our new colleagues. We expect the deal to close in Q1 of 2016.
