Temus, a digital transformation services firm headquartered in Singapore, has acquired Decision Science Agency (DS), a home-grown digital services provider focused on agile application development with over 70 professionals in Singapore, Vietnam and Malaysia.
Temus said in a statement on Thursday that as part of the acquisition, Collin Ang, Founder of DS, will join Temus as a Managing Director.
DS is the second acquisition for Temus since it was established in 2021.
Last year, Temus acquired Dreamcloud, one of Singapore’s largest OutSystems delivery teams and pioneers in the low-code space.
“Temus was established with a clear vision to enable and deliver digital transformation for the public and private sectors,
Meanwhile, Temus Founding Member and Chief Revenue Officer Srijay Ghosh said that their deep knowledge and experience in agile app development will greatly enhance their ability to deliver high value applications for government and commercial sectors, in tandem with the growing needs of their region’s digital economy.
“Both our firms are driven by a connected purpose towards building a differentiated digital transformation platform, and investing in local talent to develop a strong Singapore core,
“By doubling down on our technology modernization capabilities, we can catalyze our expansion into multi-platform offerings over the next few years to grow and transform with our clients and partners,” he added.
According to the statement, Temus has been on a strong growth trajectory since its founding in 2021 with the strategic acquisitions of DS and Dreamcloud, expansion internationally through Hong Kong, two successful cycles of Step IT UP – its accelerated ‘hire, place and train’ program and launch of its third cycle in October 2023.
In line with their mission to build local capabilities to drive transformation in public and private sectors, Temus has more than doubled in strength in these two years, and now have more than 400 digital talent, most of whom reside in Singapore.
Temus was established by Temasek in partnership with UST, to provide digital transformation solutions for the private and public sectors as they aspire to be a strategic partner in realizing the Singapore government’s Smart Nation vision.
The firm has about 200 employees across a wide range of disciplines in strategy, design, architecture, technology, data and artificial intelligence (AI).
Temus’ Step IT Up career conversion scheme was introduced in August 2022, and has seen 38 individuals with no prior tech training or backgrounds secure full-time roles in software and digital application development upon graduating from the three-month program.
The company aims to hire, place and train 20 digital business analysts (Digital BAs) in this third run of Step IT Up.
