With this acquisition, Dozen Software CEO Chris Downs becomes the AppDev Practice Lead at Mission which offers a differentiated suite of agile cloud services and consulting to over 400 enterprises in North America. Why Dozen? It has earned an exceptional reputation for applying its engineering acumen and creative design expertise to complex and time-sensitive software application development projects. Its client experience spans all industry verticals and company sizes, from retained enterprise clients to startups launching their first products. The team adds to Mission’s wealth of AWS expertise, as Dozen Software has utilized AWS for its software application development projects since the firm’s inception nearly a decade ago. As part of Mission’s AppDev practice, the Dozen Software team provides an instant infusion of talented software engineers who understand how to design, build, and optimize applications in the AWS Cloud. 


SASI served as exclusive financial advisor to Mission and worked closely with the senior management team as they navigated through multiple strategic options.  SASI led the M&A process from exploratory meetings through negotiations, due diligence, and final closing documents.  Keys to success included understanding the market dynamics driving cloud adoption and specifically cloud native application development. 

It was important to focus on strategic partners that shared a common passion and view of the market opportunity and Mission’s culture. Dozen Software emerged as a compelling acquisition partner due to the close alignment between the two companies’ core values, customer-centric philosophies, and approaches to software application development using the myriad advantages of AWS’ tools and services. Mission’s acquisition of Dozen Software accelerates the growth of its AppDev practice, bolstering its capacity and capabilities for solving customers’ challenges by delivering high-performance and secure applications built on AWS.
