Andy Eccles, senior vice president, Integrated Technology Solutions, CDW, commented:

“The Enquizit acquisition provides additional capabilities to the CDW Public Sector Cloud Services Practice and enables us to accelerate our Public Sector customers’ cloud strategies. Enquizit complements our existing commercial-focused Digital Velocity practice via professional services, including Application Modernization, Cloud Transformation, and Cybersecurity.”

TC Ratnapuri, founder and chairman, Enquizit, said:

“Enquizit has grown rapidly in the last few years due to a series of government contract wins. We were faced with the challenge of building an internal mechanism to scale delivery and maintain our culture of excellence, or to team with another organization who already has this mechanism in place. After a thorough analysis, we decided joining CDW was the best path forward to continue serving our customers at scale.”

Doug VanDyke, chief executive officer, Enquizit, added:

“We are excited to be joining CDW, who has a culture of delivery excellence. CDW has a full-stack, multi-cloud delivery capability. Enquizit is ready to help bring those services to scale in the Public Sector.”
