Per IDC, spending on digital transformation will reach $1.7 trillion globally by the end of 2019, up 42% from 2017. The research firm also predicted that all digitally transformed organizations are expected to generate at least 45% of their revenues from technologies adopted as a result of digital transformation.

Acquisitions Boding Well for DXC

DXC’s continued focus on acquisitions to expedite growth is helping it gain access to newer markets and technologies.

Its recent System Partners buyout is in sync with the company’s strategy of expanding its reach in the Australian and New Zealand markets, and bringing about cloud-first approach to its IT operations.

It also completed the acquisition of Molina Medicaid, a unit of Molina Healthcare (MOH - Free Report) , strengthening DXC’s ability to provide high-quality services to state agencies in the administration of Medicaid programs. Presently, DXC provides health services to government agencies across 42 U.S. states.

This March, DXC acquired Australian Oracle (ORCL - Free Report) cloud partner M-Power Solutions, following which it bought Melbourne-based Microsoft (MSFT - Free Report) partner, Sable37.

We believe that the acquisitions will further strengthen DXC’s position as one of the leading cloud and IT service providers in the world. Moreover, the buyouts continue to help the company boost revenues amid intensifying competition in the cloud computing market.
