Australia has welcomed a new cloud and technology consultancy into the country’s ever-expanding market with global service provider Searce launching an office in Sydney.

Texas-headquartered cloud and technology consultancy Searce has landed in Australia through the launch of a Sydney office, with former Optus cloud sales and solutions practice director Adrian Chu named as Australia and New Zealand country manager.

A Google Cloud managed services and AWS advanced consulting partner, Searce boasts a global headcount of 1,400 workers across 18 locations in 12 countries.

“As businesses become more global and interconnected, they need to find ways to adopt digital technologies to meet market demands seamlessly,” said Chu, who also spent over a decade and a half at IBM and Avnet Technology Solutions. “We see a great opportunity to serve the A/NZ market with our extensive expertise in cloud solutions and to help organisations of all sizes achieve their digital goals.”

Founded in India in 2004 by chief executive Hardik Parekh, Searce takes its name from an archaic term for a fine sieve, or as a verb to sift. In addition to specialising in cloud modernisation, the consultancy also offers services in data & analytics, software engineering, and applied artificial intelligence. Tech startups and those in the financial services, transport, retail, healthcare, and manufacturing sectors feature among clients.

“The launch of Searce in the ANZ region is helping businesses in identifying drivers for revenue growth and levers for cost savings underpinned by technology solutions,” said A/NZ solutions lead Ramesh Kesavan, one of seven Australia-based Searce employees listed on LinkedIn. “By recognising the impact of global macroeconomics on businesses, we are committed to helping our clients in paying less for more.”

Searce says that its point of difference is in its founding principle that the status quo approach of delivering static business logic based on a snapshot in time is unsustainable. The new normal, the firm states, is about enabling applications that operate on the full spectral plane of customer behaviours. The team sees this difficult trend as a reimagination of omnichannel views desired only a few years ago.

“The launch brings Searce’s differential global solver approach to the region.” says Searce A/NZ strategy & innovation director Saju Daniel. “The opportunity in the trans-Tasman region is immense. Specifically, the strategy is in line with organisations seeking pathways to refine, grow and reimagine their businesses through a partner-based model and address talent shortages irrespective of industry segments.”
