We are joining Valence Group!
Aug 14, 2018 | Press
We are very excited today to share the news that Valence has acquired 8Ninths! As our customers, partners and employees know, we transitioned completely to AR/VR about four years ago. We have had a blast building a company focused on delivering new and interesting solutions in these emerging and growing markets – with a particular focus on enterprise customers. Along the way, the market also changed a bit: we see more and more this idea of “Digital Transformation” in the language of our customers. We see Chief Digital Officers, Chief Innovation Officers and others that are focused on a broad set of innovation-oriented technologies. The reality is they are interested in more than just AR/VR. And the other reality is that virtually all our enterprise work and solution development ultimately encapsulated more than just AR/VR technologies – solutions often included sensor data from IoT platforms, voice commands to drive user experience, and even computer vision to recognize physical “things” and make sense of it. We started to realize that these technologies are coming together to build incredibly powerful platforms to help companies work through this digital transformation focus.
All these digital transformation technologies have entire ecosystems to explore – and require a new set of expertise. This is also exactly what Valence is focused on – bringing these technologies together for customers and creating value for anyone thinking about digital transformation – whether in the C-suite, marketing team, IT departments, lines-of-business, or, frankly, anyone that needs to understand the new and growing landscape of modern technologies. After a few conversations, we decided we would be better together: bring 8ninths expertise in AR/VR to Valence and bring Valence expertise in other technologies to 8ninths. And together we plan to continue to innovate and drive forward our businesses together. We couldn’t be more excited for what the future holds!
