BGF & DevOpsGroup

In 2018, we invested £3m into DevOpsGroup, a Cardiff-based IT consultancy business that advises enterprise clients on adopting modern software development models. Alongside our investment, we introduced DevOpsGroup to its non-executive chair, Adam Hale. Adam brought nearly 30 years of experience working with tech-centric businesses, helping them become global leaders in the technology space.

We supported DevOpsGroup’s ambitious acquisition strategy, financing the purchase of another Cardiff-headquartered tech company, Agile Snap. Our backing also enabled the business to increase its consultant headcount. By expanding its team and operations, DevOpsGroup was able to deliver a larger pipeline of sales and, ultimately, revenues.

Having doubled its revenues over the course of three years, DevOpsGroup was acquired by US software and services provider Amdocs in November 2021.

“We’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with the BGF team and have developed strong relationships in this time. We’re now well placed to look towards the future.”
