Eficode, Europe’s leading DevOps company, announced the acquisition of Beecom AG, a market leader in Atlassian software and Atlassian consulting in Switzerland.

The German-speaking market is adopting software as a key competitive advantage in all industries. This has fuelled the need for both Atlassian software and related professional services. With the acquisition of Beecom AG, Eficode reinforces its ability to serve growing demand of Atlassian software, cloud migrations, and the adoption of agile and DevOps practices and tools.

Eficode is the leading DevOps company in Europe, driving the DevOps and Agile movement and building the future of software development across eight countries with over 400 professionals.

Eficode is an Atlassian Platinum partner in 6 countries. It provides all the Atlassian and Agile services you need — from expert consulting, cloud transformation and Eficode ROOT managed services, to training and license sales. Eficode’s experts have been certified widely in Atlassian solutions like Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket and Bamboo. With Jira Align you gain real-time visibility on team activities, alignment across your enterprise, and flexible support for Agile frameworks like Scaled Agile Framework.

Beecom AG has been offering collaboration solutions based on Atlassian products for over 16 years and is one of the leading Atlassian partners in Switzerland.
