Applied Insight is backed by The Acacia Group.
“By bringing AI and OSI together, we’re creating an exciting and powerful coupling that we believe customers throughout government will find compelling,” said Gavin Long, CEO of Applied Insight and managing partner of The Acacia Group. “This is an important development in our strategy to create a company that works seamlessly at all levels of the most complex and sensitive mission environments ― a company that can build the systems infrastructure customers need, manage their mission-critical technologies, handle as much data as their mission requires and deliver insights that contribute to better decisions.”
The deal combines both companies’ specialties, which include advanced analytics, cyber, cloud and sensor capabilities.
“Whatever we do, we start with the mission and shape capabilities around it, using our reach across a broad range of niche and differentiated technologies,” Long said. “The team at OSI shares that approach. That’s why they’re such a good fit for us. They understand what their customers need to achieve, and they design their solutions accordingly. It’s refreshing to be working with such like-minded people. We’re delighted to be enabling their vision for the business and are looking forward to having them on board.”
In the coming months, the leadership of AI and OSI will be working to ensure close collaboration on solution design and business development, the companies said.
