Calligo acquires Ontario-based IT and cloud services company


Calligo has acquired Connected Technologies Inc., a Canadian specialist in outsourced IT and cloud services.

The acquisition of the Ontario-based company makes Calligo one of the largest providers of cloud and managed services in the the Greater Toronto Area.

The purchase follows two previous acquisitions in Canada, after cloud services provider, 3 Peaks, in October 2017 and Mico Systems, an outsourced IT services company, in May 2018.

Calligo Founder and CEO, Julian Box, said: “We are very excited about what the acquisition of Connected Technologies means for Calligo in Canada and internationally. We have been very strong in the delivery of cloud and managed services in Toronto for some time now. Adding Connected Technologies’ experience and skills to ourown will cement our position as the first choice for Toronto businesses wanting to outsource their IT.

“Looking more broadly, we are also anticipating this acquisition strengthening our delivery of publicand hybrid Azure services to businesses around the world who are keen to extract the most value from their data,while respecting applicable data privacy laws and data ethics.”

William Shilson, President of Connected Technologies Inc., added: “This acquisition was the result of obvious synergies between our two organizations – strong company cultures, a shared focus on customer centricity and a hunger for innovation. We have seen firsthand the interest that our customers have in the wider services that Calligo offers, particularly in data optimization and also in ensuring that their processes and infrastructure meet their data privacy obligations.

"This acquisition will therefore create a compelling new service proposition for existing clients, while putting Calligo in the strongest possible position to serve the needs of the wider market.”
