Kansas City, Missouri (5/25/2016) - Valorem Consulting, a leading information technology consulting firm serving globally recognizable brands and other large enterprise clients throughout North America, today announced that it has acquired IdentityMine, a globally recognized business and technology firm focused on interactive design and user experience (UX). The transaction demonstrates Valorem's commitment to strategically expanding its capabilities and geographic footprint. 


"Like Valorem, IdentityMine brings deep user experience strategy and execution capabilities, an impressive client roster, and focuses primarily on Microsoft technologies," said Domnick Parretta, Managing Partner at Valorem.

Both companies were recently named to an exclusive short list of Microsoft HoloLens Program Partners. "As a combined company we are leading the way in the area of mixed reality working with enterprise clients to create holographic experiences in real world environments that shape the future of their business,” said Justin Jackson, Managing Partner at Valorem. “Microsoft and its customers look confidently to us to take them to the cloud and beyond.” 


The acquisition of IdentityMine also: 

  • Increases Valorem's market presence in the Pacific Northwest by adding a Seattle office.
  • Brings Valorem to more than 220 consulting, analytics, engineering, cloud infrastructure, and design professionals world-wide.
  • Adds international offices in Kochi, India and Herrliberg, Switzerland.

IdentityMine Co-Founder David Meunier also joins Valorem as a strategic consultant.
