The acquisition was finalised on Thursday, the same day that Sliced Tech was announced as one of four companies — the others being two Australian firms and one American company — to achieve Strategic Hosting Provider certification under the Federal Government's Hosting Certification Framework.
This is the second Australian cloud company that Deloitte has bought, with the professional services behemoth having acquired Soda Strategic and its 30 employees in April this year.
Sliced Tech was set up in 2011 by Jason McClure, the chief executive at the time of the sale, who will now become a Deloitte Consulting partner. The firm has 40 employees and is mostly based in Canberra, but has a presence in Sydney and Melbourne.
"This is a very important transaction as it strengthens our ability to provide secure end-to-end cloud solutions for our clients and reinforces our deep commitment to Canberra and supporting the needs of the Federal Government.
“We’re committed to being the leading data security and cloud solutions service provider in the Australian market and the addition of the Sliced Tech team is very aligned with this goal.”
McClure said: “This is an incredible opportunity for us to grow the reach of our specialist, high security cloud managed services.
“Deloitte is a leader in cloud services more generally. We will continue to offer the specialist services behind our market leadership, and we are excited that our offerings will also add to the firm’s market presence more broadly.
“It’s exciting for our business and for our people, and their professional development and the career opportunities available within a leading professional services firm.”
