About Us

Meet the change makers

SXiQ was founded in 2016 with the goal of helping businesses leverage the benefits of cloud technologies and supporting their ongoing cloud journey.

Since then, we’ve assembled a group of business and technology leaders that provide our customers enterprise level capability with agile methodologies.

We were acquired by IBM in 2021, allowing us to seamlessly scale across their global resources with instantaneous effect – extending our reach and impact.

Our purpose is ensuring cloud works for our customers, with a fanatical focus on automation, simplification and security. We empower organisations to drive faster innovation, smarter insights and disrupt their industries in ways they never imagined possible

A cloud company with a *difference

Whilst we’ve seen more than most when it comes to cloud, we continue to learn, develop and push ourselves so we can share our knowledge with, and drive the best outcomes for, our customers.

Our clients

Our customers are organisations that are impacting, influencing and contributing to their industries on a national and global scale.
They are driven and ambitious, with big goals. They expect us to understand them and to help them deliver on their missions.

They are people like us, striving to make their organisations better, smarter, more agile and to be leaders in their markets.
