Sensei Project Solutions Inc., a global leader in Microsoft Project and Portfolio Management (PPM) deployments, announced today that Australian-based PPM Partner, IPMO Pty Ltd, joins the company as Sensei Project Solutions APAC to extend its reach into the Asia Pacific region.
IPMO has expertise in line of business integration, reporting and cloud migrations, with a broad Australian customer base. In joining forces with Sensei, IPMO aligns with Sensei's strategy of offering customers the most complete end-to-end PPM solutions. This move enables Sensei to expand tailored, cloud-based solutions to help manage everything from simple tasks to the most advanced projects, programs and portfolios, anytime, anywhere, on any device.
“Sensei is thrilled to have IPMO join our family,” said Kenneth Steiness, CEO of Sensei Project Solutions. “The synergy created greatly increases the depth and breadth of our offerings and intellectual property. Also, this expanded international presence aligns with Sensei’s long-term strategy to be the leading global provider of Microsoft PPM services, solutions, training and apps.”
IPMO brings complementary capabilities and software to Sensei, including a range of cloud-focused and Microsoft Azure based productivity applications. In 2015, Microsoft Corp. acquired six productivity apps from Sensei to integrate into its PPM platform.
“Sensei and IPMO are both trusted Microsoft partners today,” said Brett Brewer, General Manager of Microsoft’s Project & Portfolio Management business. “Having them now become one team with a shared commitment to Microsoft PPM will be of tremendous value to our joint clients.”
Sensei also announced today that Andy Neumann joins the company as Chief Executive Officer of the Asia Pacific arm. Neumann assumes responsibility for growing the APAC business and further extending the organization’s transformation into new products, service lines and cloud productivity offerings.
Neumann most recently served as Chief Innovation and Marketing Officer at Empired, winner of the 2015 CRN Fast50 Leader award, which recognized Empired as the largest organization among a field of the fastest growing IT companies in Australia. In his previous role as Managing Director of OBS, Neumann grew the business to become a leader in the Microsoft managed partner space and was heavily influential in developing the OBS culture which was named BRW's Best Place to Work 2012.
“Andy is going to be an integral part of Sensei’s strategy to build relationships and business in APAC,” said Marc Soester, Executive Director of IPMO. “He brings a wealth of knowledge in the PPM space and is a respected leader with our partner, Microsoft.”
“I admire the growth that Sensei has accomplished in such a short time,” said Neumann. “I’m eager to be part of Sensei’s future by providing leadership on the direction and expansion of our service portfolio. This is an extremely exciting time to be joining and leading the business.”
