Author: Rich Pugh, Chief Data Scientist, Mango Solutions
We are excited to announce today the acquisition of Mango Solutions by Ascent.
We founded Mango back in 2002, where we had a mission to make data an essential part of strategic decision making. Over the years, having grown from strength to strength, we’ve been fortunate enough to work with some leading organisations around the world to unlock the value that data science can deliver.
Ascent, a fast-growing European software services company, specialises in delivering effective digital transformation. Backed by a heritage of significant technical capability in software design and engineering skills, product development, IoT and integration – Ascent adds a new dimension at the intersection between data and software.
This acquisition represents an ambitious growth strategy for us, opening newly accessible markets where demand for insight and intelligence is rising. Enriching our proposition with impressive software talent and technology capability will put us in a greater position, allowing our customers to benefit from an end-to-end data-driven proposition with enhanced end-user capability.
The sector has evolved rapidly over the past 18 years, and as founders of Mango we are immensely proud of our organic growth. We have delivered value that has surpassed expectation, and always delighted our customers. We are also proud of our award-winning data science consultancy team, who will sit at the heart of this engine – delivering insight, modelling scenarios and determining the next best decisions for businesses.
After joining as partners initially, it was clear from the start that Mango and Ascent’s vision and shared values aligned. This next step for us is a natural evolution that adds layers to the existing Mango team. I’m truly excited about the future and growth of Mango, as I continue my role at Ascent as Chief Data Scientist.
Our journey to date has been made possible by the contributions of our customers, partners and of course, our amazing team. We look forward to sharing the next part of our chapter with you.
