International IT solutions provider, Logicalis UK, today announced the acquisition of the company trading as Trovus, a leading provider of analytics dashboard solutions to business executives.
Logicalis UK will use the acquisition to further position itself as a trusted advisor on the next wave of rapid, line-of-business relevant, and highly visual information insights and big data analytics. The transaction is in line with Logicalis’ go to market strategy; helping to establish itself as a driving force in the emerging digital markets driven by social, mobile, analytics and cloud technologies (SMAC).
Arnaud Spirlet, Head of European Markets for Logicalis, commented: “Analytics is a crucial element of the SMAC model, since it provides line of business managers with the actionable insight they need to drive business innovation and competitive advantage from disparate business data. This acquisition strengthens Logicalis’ position as a leading provider of consulting and solution services in a market that, according to ABI Research, could be worth $114 billion globally by 2018.”
The deal sees Ed Charvet, Managing Director of Trovus, appointed to the role of Director of Information Insights at Logicalis UK. Charvet will lead the organisation’s business unit strategy, extending the portfolio of consulting, solutions and managed services such as the company’s Spatial Intelligence, wireless and behavioural analytics offerings.
Charvet commented, “Trovus and Logicalis have partnered successfully for some time, giving clients the benefits of both highly focussed Business Intelligence (BI) consultancy to define the best solution, and the ability to then scale organisation wide using Logicalis’ deep technical resources and global reach. The fit is a great one and positions Logicalis perfectly between the pure consultancy firms and the specialist vendors.”
Providing business insight solutions, professional and managed services, Trovus enables businesses to turn data into tangible and transformative competitive advantage. It extends that advantage to the widest possible executive user base, in some cases increasing user adoption from the industry average of 30% up to 70% within an organisation.
Spirlet explained, “As a Line of Business executive myself, I need fast and actionable information insights across a range of data sources. Trovus will bring that ability to our customer’s users, but without the need for costly and complex data re-structuring or application renewal projects, shrinking delivery timescales from many months to matter of weeks or even days.”
Trovus’ clients range from global businesses to regional market specialists across a number of verticals, including professional services, financial services, construction, technology, telecoms, healthcare and the public sector. It helps clients make powerful and time-relevant insights available for business users across all major organisational functions - including finance and billing, business operations, HR, sales and marketing.
Charvet concluded, “This is a fast-moving market and our clients increasingly need access to national and international services and expertise. We can now meet those needs, based on one of the most comprehensive analytics offerings in the market.”
