The move is meant to buoy Accelera’s Microsoft Systems Management and Messaging technologies offerings, according to the company's August 30 statement,
Accelera President Joe Brown said that it was ITS’ “similar culture, deep technical skills, impressive customer base” and customer delivery skills, that went into the acquisition decision.
The close alignment of ITS Group with Accelera’s target growth markets was another reason for the acquisition, according to the statement.
