Calligo: 3 Microsoft Partner Acquisitions
The acquisition also marks Calligo’s third of 2020 and its eighth acquisition in three years. Most recently, the company acquired another Irish IT managed services firm, Itomic Voice & Data Ltd, in June. All of Calligo’s acquisitions have involved Microsoft partners.
This latest deal will reinforce Calligo’s position as one of Ireland’s largest IT managed services providers in terms of resources, market share, and breadth of service and capability, according to the company.
Founded in 2011, Calligo provides public and hybrid cloud, IT managed services, data analytics, artificial intelligence and archival and erasure services, all supported by a ‘privacy-first’ data management consultancy. The company operates in Ireland, Canada, the U.S., the UK, the Channel Islands and Luxembourg, and serves a worldwide customer base.
Based in Cavan and Dublin, Ireland, Cinnte Technologies’ core services involve managed IT, cloud and Microsoft 365.
Calligo Acquires Cinnte Technologies: A Global Service Team
Julian Box, founder & CEO at Calligo, commented:
“The Cinnte Technologies team has done a great job keeping its clients’ data continuously available and secure, and we will immediately supplement our local resources with their skills. We also intend to help Cinnte Technologies’ clients build from their solid data foundations, offering broader data safety through our governance and privacy services, and greater insight into their data with our automation and machine learning services.”
Danny Barr, Cinnte Technologies’ managing director and founder, said:
“We have always differentiated successfully in the local market on our service and our IT security capabilities. With this acquisition, we can now contribute to a highly-regarded global service team, serving an international customer base with a wider, data-centric service portfolio. It gives our team the opportunity to use their skills to make a far greater impact and gives our clients access to data services that Cinnte Technologies alone could have never offered. It is a big, positive step forward for everyone involved.”
