IT solutions integrator Scalar Decisions has reached an agreement to purchase Eosensa, a technology risk management consulting firm.
The Toronto-based Scalar says the acquisition “is highly complementary” and, as its third acquisition in less than two years, solidifies Scalar’s position as one of Canada’s larger IT solutions companies.
The transaction extends Eosensa’s Risk Advisory offering to 800 Scalar clients in eight offices across Canada, while providing Eosensa’s clients with access to Scalar’s technology architecture, integration, and managed services resources, across the security, infrastructure, and cloud practices.
“With the expertise in technology risk management, Scalar will now offer its clients end-to-end technology solutions, from risk and gap assessments to technology recommendations, implementation, integration and ongoing managed services,” said Paul Kerr, president and CEO of Scalar Decisions. “Beyond business synchronicity, the companies share a focus on client service, organizational and cultural values, which are critical for a seamless integration.”
Eosensa’s team of 22 full time employees will be integrated immediately and form a new Risk Advisory Practice at Scalar. The group is currently recruiting additional resources in Toronto and other major centres across Canada.
“We look forward to bringing Scalar’s technology solutions and coast to coast network to our client base,” said Julius Azarcon, practice leader and co-founder, Eosensa. “We are confident this will be a mutually beneficial and seamless transition for both teams.”
Founded in 2004, Scalar has offices across Canada.
