Emids buys software development firm Cloud Development Resources

Emids, a Nashville-based healthcare IT consultancy, has acquired Cloud Development Resources (CDR), a Sarasota, FL-based software development and IT solutions firm.

Founded in 2018, CDR focuses on leveraging Outsystems, a popular low-code development platform, to help clients build, deploy, and manage mobile and web enterprise applications. The firm’s team of onshore and offshore professionals work with companies in healthcare, pharmaceuticals, financial services, and consumer goods.

CDR has approximately 180 employees in the US and The Philippines.

Emids’ acquisition of CDR and its partnership with Outsystems will help the company deliver health IT projects with greater speed to market, according to a press release.

“If the pandemic has taught us anything, it’s that you must be able to turn on a dime,” said Clark Swain, president of CDR. “To be able to do this in a secure, easy-to-maintain manner, you have to completely rethink how you deliver solutions; low-code technology is the answer.”

Emids last year acquired Macadamian, a user experience (UX) specialist based in Quebec. The deal added more than 100 people and expanded the firm’s presence into Canada, Romania, and Armenia.

The Nashville-based IT consultancy also last year bought Quovantis Technologies, an India-based UX design firm with approximately 300 people.

“We are excited to pioneer the combined strength of modern digital engineering with low-code engineering to our healthcare and life sciences customers,” said Kumar Kolin, chief technology officer at Emids. “This will accelerate their digital transformation and consumer experience journey at an unprecedented pace.”

Founded in 1999, Emids supports the healthcare and life sciences industry with services in digital transformation, custom app development, data engineering, business intelligence, and specialized consulting. The firm has more than 2,300 people across offices in the US, Canada, UK, Romania, Armenia, and India.
