Dimension Data Acquires Ceryx to Boost Microsoft Cloud Expertise
Dimension Data announced on Monday that it has acquired Ceryx, a Toronto-based provider of Microsoft services, including Office 365, Exchange, Sharepoint, and Skype for Business. The terms of the acquisition have not been disclosed.
Ceryx will operate within Dimension Data’s ITaaS Service Unit. The company’s focus is on Fortune 500 clients in Canada and the US, as well as more recently, in Europe.
Dimension Data said the strategic acquisition will boost its hybrid cloud offering.
“We’ve seen strong adoption of our private cloud offering for Exchange, SharePoint and Skype for Business,” Ettienne Reinecke, Dimension Data’s Group CTO, said in a statement. “This strategic acquisition fast tracks Dimension Data’s hybrid offering, and positions the combined entities as one of the few companies globally that can offer the full suite of different delivery models that allows organizations to provision, manage and optimize these workloads through a single management portal, irrespective of platform or location.”
Gus Harsfai, founder and CEO of Ceryx, said, “We’re thrilled to join Dimension Data and the wider NTT Group. Our combined technology offerings and approach to end-user computing strengthens our ability to support businesses across the world on private, public and hybrid technology platforms.”
