Posted by Mystic River Solutions | EVOTEK Media Desk on Oct 26, 2020 10:23:59 AM

 

SAN DIEGO, October 26, 2020 -- EVOTEK (www.evotek.com), the nation's premier enabler of secure digital business, announced today, the company’s first ever acquisition of Mystic River Consulting. The new entity, Mystic River Solutions, expands EVOTEK’s services portfolio into Intelligent and Robotic Process Automation (RPA). EVOTEK’s financial strength and market relevance has allowed the company to continuously innovate. The combined organization will extend national reach into the Northeast, with a collective 130 employees and combined revenues over $350 million.

Mystic River, founded by Brian Raposo, designs and deploys custom automations, leveraging consulting excellence and deep expertise in highly scalable intelligent automation operations. Mystic River specializes in extending Robotic Process Automation (RPA), Business Process, AI and Machine Learning into cohesive Intelligent Automation (IA) Frameworks, which bridge the gap between back office and front office functions. This enables enterprises to realize the full impact of a digital workforce by reaching beyond technology, into business process and workforce management.

“Robotic Process Automation is the next frontier to support the digital workforce movement,” said Cesar Enciso, Founder and CEO of EVOTEK. “This acquisition is about much more than a purchase of brilliant ideas and technology. This is about the coming together of relationships and cultures. I have known Brian for nearly a decade and previously built a successful business together. He is the perfect addition to EVOTEK, as is the next-generation business he founded. This will be another differentiator for the company, further highlighting that the days of the box-pushing-VARs are over.”

In September 2020, an integrated team of process automation professionals from KPMG’s Digital Labor Center of Excellence moved as an intact Center of Excellence (COE) to Mystic River. The COE has deployed hundreds of bots at client sites and automated over a half million hours of manual processes across functions including Finance, HR, IT and Marketing. Mystic River will operate independently as an EVOTEK subsidiary and be led by Heather Maitre, Managing Director. As part of the acquisition, 25 employees will join the EVOTEK family. “EVOTEK’s operational excellence and agility provide the infrastructure needed for Mystic River to support the large enterprise. Our organizations jointly value service excellence, customer purpose and taking care of our people. EVOTEK has an incredible culture and fabulous leadership,” added Maitre.

“Intelligent automation is critical to effectively manage software-defined infrastructure, as it becomes an integral part of the expanding, hybrid enterprise. EVOTEK’s expertise in cybersecurity and cloud provide the foundational confidence our customers need to trust a deep level of automation,” said Jeff Klenner, President of EVOTEK.

Founded in 2014, EVOTEK is purpose built to assist enterprise customers with the changing IT landscape. EVOTEK is unique in its ability to support the hybrid space between traditional IT and a secure multi-cloud. EVOTEK’s focus on automation has been key to assisting customers to drive down operational costs while adding capabilities. The company has experienced hypergrowth during its 6-years of existence, in both terms of employees and revenues.

 “EVOTEK’s track record of being a market disrupter will make for an exciting integration of our complimentary practices,” said Raposo. “Joining forces with EVOTEK will create a different class of supplier, with a unique blend of advisory services, specialized consulting and technology providers. What a great time to be joining the top privately owned systems integrator in the country.”

For Immediate Release

LOS ANGELES

Mystic River Consulting (MRC), a game changing consultancy that streamlines operations with an unmatched robotic process automation (RPA) services portfolio, today announces an alliance with Automation Anywhere, Inc., a global leader in RPA.

The RPA market represents the fastest growing software segment, however, there is a professional services gap for scaling the use of software bots throughout an enterprise given the lack of experience in the RPA maturity spectrum.

For clients trying to scale operations, MRC provides an offering that is unique in the marketplace: a “COE in a Box.” It includes experienced staff in all necessary COE roles (e.g., business analysts, developers, portfolio managers) along with a proprietary service delivery platform. MRC’s platform contains a vast library of reusable code, best practice processes (e.g., a model SAP invoice reconciliation for Finance), multi-tenant service delivery, training and communications content, and more.

Whether a client is starting on an RPA journey or trying to scale to 100+ RPA devices, the process mining methodology is customized to fit the ongoing needs of the client. MRC conducts analyses to ensure the right processes are identified, calculates expected ROI and ensures targeted areas are aligned with the organization’s strategic priorities. MRC provides detailed use case development, engineering, testing, deployment, continuous improvement, ROI tracking and change management services.

“MRC’s services enable RPA integration for customers to realize the benefits of intelligent automation faster and easier, particularly at a time when digital transformation has accelerated due to the onset of the pandemic,” said Derek Toone, Senior Vice President, Channel Strategy and Global Alliances, Automation Anywhere. “We are excited to collaborate with MRC and look forward to working with their consultants using our leading digital workforce platform.”

MRC’s founder, Brian Raposo, stated “Mystic River Consulting is poised to fill the role of providing highly specialized and targeted RPA services with our groundbreaking multi-tenant service delivery platform. The knowledge and experience of our team removes risk, fast tracks savings and, most importantly, allows for our customers to leverage RPA to gain a competitive advantage in a highly evolving market.”

LOS ANGELES (PRWEB)

Mystic River Consulting Partners with BladeBridge to Deliver Unparalleled Accuracy, Speed and Predictability in Data Migrations and Conversions

Posted by MRC Media Desk on Dec 13, 2019 11:04:00 PM

For Immediate Release

[LOS ANGELES, CA]: Mystic River Consulting (MRC), a game-changing firm delivering unmatched Business Intelligence (BI) services is pleased to announce its recent partnership with BladeBridge, a leader in full lifecycle data conversion and automation.

Data conversion projects can be daunting for organizations given the complexity of enterprise data and the prevalence of legacy code. For this reason, data migration is one of the most complicated, challenging engineering tasks: 83% of data migration projects are over budget by an average of 30% and exceed the planned timeline by 41%. Part of the reason for this failure is that the scope of the migration effort is unknown, and there isn’t an easy way to determine the requirements, thus most organizations don’t know the challenges they will encounter until the project has already begun.

Mystic River Consulting can uncover the unknowns in ETL projects and reduce data migration project costs and timelines by as much as 5x. This is achieved through their pre-migration conversion analysis methodology. “Our partnership with BladeBridge accelerates the results our Business Intelligence practice can provide to customers,” Brian Raposo, Founder and Managing Partner for MRC said. “Our growing partner ecosystem continues to empower our consultants to provide unparalleled service quality and excellence in the big data space.”

This proprietary methodology details every artifact that must be migrated, puts them into functional categories and categorizes the effort in terms of complexity. This data is then used to provide an accurate, quantifiable data migration project scope and resource requirements, enabling customers to more accurately plan and budget the effort. Furthermore, the data collected during this pre-project analysis speeds the actual conversion project by automating 70%-95% of the process. “Tools can only go so far,” stated Troy Clemente, Executive VP and Co-Founder of Bladebridge. “Methodology excellence and seasoned Data Engineers who can think outside the box are critical for success.”

About Mystic River Consulting: Mystic River Consulting is a firm with proven, repeatable service delivery methodologies and a proprietary platform that drives transformational IT project results, at a game changing speed.

About BladeBridge: BladeBridge is a technology company that provides specialized products that analyze and convert data stores.
