Codit & Unbrace Merge: Aligning Front- and Back-End in Full-Service Solutions

From data integration to an all-inclusive data intelligence service: Codit and Unbrace come together to provide full-circle data-driven solutions with even more agility, continuity and mobility.

Codit is excited to announce the latest advancement in our evolution into a full-service data intelligence solutions provider. Our recent merger with Belgian application development company Unbrace integrates their talent for developing customized, high-performant front-end systems with our long-standing expertise in back-end and data integration solutions.

Founded in 2013, Unbrace is a passionate and forward-thinking Belgian application development company that builds custom front-end web solutions, focused on user experience. The company strives to go beyond “crunching code” to offer customers truly value-add tools and services that help grow their businesses.

The union brings together Codit’s industry-leading back-end expertise, including Integration, Application Modernization, cloud-native technologies, API Management, IoT and AI, with Unbrace’s innovative solutions in the front-end for a holistic data intelligence scope. As a result, our joined forces position us to provide a seamless digital transformation for our customers from data set up, to integration design, to front-end deployment.

Unbrace will come under the Codit umbrella, continuing to work in the application development company’s Antwerp office. Serving as a satellite office in addition to the existing Codit Ghent location, this Antwerp office offers another convenient site for work and collaboration between our customers and merged teams.

“Uniting with Unbrace gives us an even stronger foothold in this prominent business region of Belgium and widens our service threshold for our customers worldwide,” explains Serge Verborgh, General Manager of Codit Belgium, “Additionally, the front-end development expertise that Unbrace brings into our portfolio enhances our support through expanded diversity of our solution offering and through increased mobility for our staff and customers.”

As both companies are members of the Proximus Accelerator group and concentrated on Microsoft technology, the merger is a natural match in both our technical focus and overarching vision for transformation.

Olivier Malherbe, Unbrace CEO, explains, “After the acquisition by Proximus 3 years ago, this union is the logical next step in Unbrace’s growth path. Codit and Unbrace complement one another perfectly. Our focus on ultimate user experience in combination with expertise in back-end and data integration, offers a wealth of new opportunities for our customers. I’m also very happy for our team and their increased scope for professional development, as they will have 180 highly skilled new colleagues in 8 different countries.

Stijn Degrieck, Codit CEO, adds, “Combining our two teams is more than a business merger. This is an evolution of our company, realizing the next step in our growth path to expand our support across the full spectrum of data intelligence. In the past 20 years we’ve built a reputation for our leading knowledge and excellent quality in back-end and integration services. Now we have the combined skill set to bring that integration to life, seeing it all the way through to the front-end. Today we’ve advanced from integration experts to a comprehensive end-to-end provider, fully equipped to develop complete data-driven solutions – all in house.”
