Binary Tree Acquires Donova SE

Binary Tree has been growing both organically and via M&A. The company in 2016 acquired Azure, Office 365 and SharePoint migration specialist Donova SE to its portfolio. Donova CEO Mats Jansson and other company founders and staff joined Binary Tree as part of the deal.

Donova brings application migration expertise to Binary Tree, according to CEO Steven Pivnik.
