Okta to Acquire Azuqua to Connect Business Applications in the Enterprise
Okta, Inc. , the leading independent provider of identity for the enterprise, has this week announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Azuqua, a leader in no-code, cloud-based business application integration and workflow automation. Together, Okta and Azuqua will provide organizations with a neutral, independent control center for automating the business processes and the flow of identities between applications and services for everyone in an organization— from employees to partners, and customers. The proposed acquisition is expected to close during Okta’s fiscal first quarter, subject to the satisfaction of certain closing conditions.
As every company transforms itself into a technology company, the proliferation of apps and services that power the modern business must drive efficiency, innovation and seamless end user experiences across disparate systems. According to Okta’s 2019 Businesses at Work Report, the average Okta customer has 83 cloud apps, and 9% of customers have more than 200 cloud apps. As organizations choose and adopt best-of-breed technologies, they often struggle to make all of their different applications and technologies work together, and to manage them at scale. Typically, IT organizations are forced to build and maintain custom integrations or rely on manual processes. The cost and friction involved has been a huge barrier to the adoption of new technology.
Okta invested early in automation for provisioning and deprovisioning apps and services with Okta’s Lifecycle Management product. With Azuqua, connectors are pre-built and maintained, and workflows can be defined without code — ultimately enabling companies to deliver connected digital experiences across the organization and deliver tailored, repeatable customer journeys. The unifying power of identity through the Okta Identity Cloud combined with Azuqua’s modern, simple integration platform will enable customers to automate more of their business processes and connect to even more apps. IT teams will be able to use pre-built connectors and logic to create streamlined processes and increase operational speed. Product teams will be able to embed this technology in their own applications alongside Okta’s core authentication and user management technology to build delightful, integrated customer experiences.
“Only a neutral, independent platform like the Okta Identity Cloud has the capacity to ensure that every app in an organization is tightly integrated, so businesses can optimize productivity and deliver delightful customer experiences. Identity is the unifying component that can make all of these technologies interact seamlessly and securely. Identity will power the next wave of movement to best-in-breed technology,” said Frederic Kerrest, Chief Operating Officer and co-founder of Okta. “Azuqua’s power to connect applications will multiply the benefits of the The Okta Integration Network for Okta’s customers, enabling them to unlock data, create seamless business processes and eliminate cloud silos. We look forward to bringing on the Azuqua team to further our vision to enable any organization to use any technology.”
"PlanGrid is used on more than 1.5 million construction projects, and teams around the world rely on our software to collaborate and increase productivity,” said Tracy Young, head of PlanGrid at Autodesk. "Okta and Azuqua play an integral role in connecting the people and technology that brings PlanGrid into field workers' daily workflow. Azuqua helps us break down data silos and Okta provides unprecedented security. Together they will become an industry standard, and deliver the scale our customers demand.”
Founded in 2013, Azuqua is pioneering cloud-based integration and automation. Collectively, the Azuqua team has decades of experience building enterprise technology products, coming from companies like Microsoft, Tableau, VMware, Telstra and IBM. Nikhil Hasija, founder and chief product officer, will join Okta’s engineering team to help lead the company’s workflow automation strategy, beginning with the integration of Azuqua’s workflow offering into Okta's Lifecycle Management product.
