Gridwise acquired by Red Stack Tech


13 Jan 2015 Krakow - On 18th December 2014, Gridwise got acquired by the British group Red Stack Tech. 11 years after inception, Gridwise developed into a well known, reputable data analytics and database service provider. Together with the staff, clients and partners, the company created a growing healthy business.

Its loyal and dedicated personnel, trusting customers, transparent procedures and high service standards has meant Gridwise has been able to show significant growth in attracting customers from all over the globe. The company has served clients in its homeland Poland and 15 other countries, totaling in some 200 commercial projects and co-operating with 30 universities. In 2014, again all (100%) clients decided to extend their contracts with Gridwise. The company also saw a record 75% annual increase of the number of database maintenance contracts. Simultaneously, the Big Data team successfully delivered new innovative Data Analytics projects.

Two years ago the company initiated a partner dialogue with Red Stack Tech, owner of e-DBA, one of world's most competent and leading database service providers, present in the UK, Australia and the USA.

e-DBA was recently named the Oracle Engineered Systems Partner of the Year in three simultaneous categories - UK, EMEA & Global. Red Stack Tech, like Gridwise, is active in both (but not limited to) Data Analytics and Database Services. The efforts to build a healthy business were noticed worldwide. Red Stack Tech & Gridwise decided that in order to grow further and expand both their service capabilities, Gridwise had to become part of the Red Stack Tech group. This decision was taken with the full support of the staff and customers.

Red Stack Tech's proposition enables Gridwise to leapfrog at least five years of growth & development. Gridwise is now part of a group of over 100 employees serving over 100 clients every month. For customers , that means greater stability and reliability of service under professional management. For staff, this means personal skills development on larger and innovative projects. For the Polish office, this means substantial development. Paweł Płaszczak, former President of Gridwise, receives a new role within Red Stack Tech as Global Data Analytics Lead, promising better focus and development in the area of his personal interest.
