Synergies Between Ness Digital Engineering and Linium

Company deepening its end-to-end digital enablement capabilities

TEANECK, NJ – March 14, 2018 Ness Digital Engineering, a portfolio company of The Rohatyn Group (TRG), has executed a definitive agreement to acquire Linium, LLC, a digital business, engineering, experience and transformation consultancy. Ness Digital Engineering, a global company committed to helping its clients deliver dynamic customer interactions and business operations platforms, is expanding its capabilities in delivering end-to-end digital enablement.

“This acquisition will further extend our capabilities in digital operations and business process management and automation,” said Paul Lombardo, Ness Digital Engineering CEO. “Organizations are under tremendous pressure to be more agile and efficient in their operations, and Linium is highly regarded for its expertise in strategic business process consulting and helping clients use technologies to transform business processes. We share a similar philosophy for how we work with clients: understand their business needs first, then our collaborative, experienced teams apply modern systems design that ensures execution is successful on day one and can evolve as business needs change.”

Linium delivers cloud-based enterprise platforms and solutions, with particular expertise in ServiceNow solutions, that position companies to achieve scale, drive growth and enable modernization. By combining with Ness, Linium can offer its clients a wider range of digital platform development, customization and management services that complement its expertise.

“We’re excited to come together with another organization committed to supporting clients’ digital transformation,” said Joe Burke, CEO of Linium. “Joining with Ness will enable us to enhance and expand the services, value and experience we provide to customers, while also preserving the agility and culture that define the essence of Linium.”

This acquisition will add to Ness’s expertise in helping clients achieve better business performance through novel, highly-effective uses of data and technologies integrated into solutions that:

  • Create unrivalled customer experiences using innovative digital strategies, platforms and products
  • Increase operational agility through system modernization, integration, and business process automation
  • Exploit the strengths of emerging technologies to help clients stay ahead of the competition

Linium will maintain its name but become a “Ness Digital Engineering Company.” Headquartered in Albany, NY, Linium and its employees will continue to work out of their current locations. Burke will become President of Ness Digital Engineering, North America, reporting to Paul Lombardo.

The transaction is expected to close toward the end of the first quarter of this year or early in the second quarter. [Ness announced the completion of the Linium acquisition on April 3, 2018.]
