IBM announced it has acquired SiXworks Limited (Ltd.), a UK-based consultancy serving the UK defence sector and specialising in digital transformation in highly secure environments. SiXworks is a trusted partner to the UK Ministry of Defence.

The acquisition deepens IBM Consulting’s ability to serve clients in the UK defence sector with additional highly specialist industry and technical domain skills across digital, cyber and defence cloud solutions.

Founded in 2017, and headquartered in Farnborough, England, SiXworks is a leading consulting provider of secure digital solutions, specialising in end-to-end digital transformation from defining requirements to agile solution delivery to post-deployment maintenance support.

This acquisition exemplifies IBM’s ongoing commitment to serving clients in the public sector. IBM's acquisition of Octo established IBM as one of the top digital transformation partners to the U.S. federal government, including defence, health, and civilian agencies. Now SiXworks will add complementary capabilities to IBM’s existing cybersecurity, data and AI offerings in the United Kingdom – allowing IBM to enhance how we support end-to-end transformation for defence sector clients.

SiXworks will join IBM Consulting as part of the public sector industry team.
