CSC Agrees to Buy Cloud Mgmt Firm ServiceMesh; Mike Lawrie, Dan Hushon Comment

CSC logo_GovConWireComputer Sciences Corp. (NYSE: CSC) has agreed to buy Santa Monica, Calif.-based cloud management company ServiceMesh for an undisclosed amount as part of CSC’s efforts to help customers move applications to cloud platforms.

CSC expects to complete the acquisition in the third quarter of its 2014 fiscal year,  CSC said Wednesday.

Dan Hushon, CSC chief technology officer, said the company intends for the acquisition to help companies implement hybrid cloud strategies and maintain governance, policy and administration.

Mike Lawrie, CSC president and CEO, said the company bought ServiceMesh to catalogue enterprise applications and organize them to run in different cloud environments.

ServiceMesh’s customers will gain access to CSC’s sales, marketing, delivery and service development teams.

Customers also could work with CSC’s consultants, application developers, software engineers, cybersecurity experts and infrastructure personnel.

ServiceMesh designed its agility platform offering to automate the deployment of applications and platforms across cloud environments for the financial, healthcare and industry customers.

That platform serves as a control point for governance, compliance and security across cloud platforms, CSC says.

RBC Capital Markets advised CSC on the transaction.
