Cloud impacts every corner of the business world, including organizations of all sizes, needs, and industries. Logicworks is a high-growth managed cloud services company that empowers customers to migrate, run and operate business applications on AWS and Azure platforms. By bringing together Logicworks with RapidScale, a Cox Business company, Cox will strengthen its offering to provide cutting-edge cloud solutions to U.S.-based companies around the globe.
“With Logicworks in our commercial services portfolio, we can help customers better migrate and manage systems in the cloud while they focus on business priorities,” said Mark Greatrex, president, of Cox Communications. “This acquisition is part of our larger plan to offer a comprehensive suite of innovative IT solutions.”
Logicworks joins Cox’s portfolio of commercial businesses that work together to holistically serve commercial customers’ connectivity, telecom and IT needs.
“Cox and Logicworks share the same vision surrounding the underserved public cloud-managed services space. This partnership creates a fantastic opportunity for us to step in and become a market leader. It enables us to continue to capitalize on the increasing demand in the market as well as broaden our opportunities for growth,” said Ken Ziegler, CEO of Logicworks.
