Calligo acquires IT support provider

Local data optimisation specialist Calligo has acquired a Dublin-based IT managed services provider.

The purchase of DC Networks - a specialist in IT support, telecommunications, networking and managed Microsoft Azure services - marks the sixth acquisition to be completed by Calligo over the past three years in Canada, Guernsey and Luxembourg.

Calligo says DC Networks’ services and skillsets complement its own, while they hope its location will strengthen the firm's delivery of strategic data services.

“Ireland is a rapidly-growing market, but particularly in its appetite for innovative technology," commented Julian Box, Founder and CEO of Calligo.

"It is populated by a high proportion of ambitious, data-driven businesses eager to explore how they can make fullest use of their data and make it work harder for them. Ireland was clearly the logical next step for Calligo’s international expansion."

He added: “DC Networks was an easy choice of company for our first steps into Ireland. It is a well-run business with a portfolio of IT, cloud and managed services that will meld very easily with our own, and it has a rightfully-earned local reputation for client service and accurate delivery."

Noting the "synergy" of the two companies, Director of DC Networks Robert Doyle added: "This acquisition will be an excellent result for our new and existing clients, as the wider portfolio of data services that will be made available to them, including data privacy, automation and artificial intelligence, are exactly what they and businesses across Ireland are in need of.”
