Eccella works with organizations across the world to help them develop, deploy and execute data-driven strategies. Its team will join NGDATA as the company continues to execute its strategy for aggressive North American and global growth.

This is a strategic acquisition for NGDATA that will help us solidify the team, the resources and the company infrastructure to accelerate the pace of our growth. The addition of Eccella will greatly enhance the value we bring to our clients and partners through the powerful combination of the functionality of Lily Enterprise and Eccella’s deep domain knowledge, partnerships and global industry expertise,” believes Luc Burgelman, CEO of NGDATA.
