Lumenate merges with International Computerware continuing expansion of capabilities and coverage

Dallas headquartered firm enhances capabilities for companies converging infrastructure

DALLAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Lumenate is announcing that it has merged with Boston-based infrastructure consulting and integration firm, International Computerware Inc. Founded in 1985, ICI built a strong reputation in the Northeast delivering high-value enterprise solutions focusing on Storage, Virtualization and the delivery of As-a-Service consumption models, a solution that Lumenate calls Business Model Flexibility.   The combination of the companies strengthens the solution portfolio of Lumenate, extends its geographic reach and provides an enhanced capability to address client challenges.

"The addition of ICI continues to strengthen our capabilities and allows us to serve our customers better.  As we deliver on our value proposition (a technical consulting firm enabling customers to transition to a converged infrastructure via business model flexibility), ICI adds interesting healthcare expertise, virtualization solutions and datacenter capabilities that enrich our offerings to our customers.  2012 has been an exciting year as we have accelerated our growth plans by 2 years, and we see similar, if not greater, opportunities to do the same in 2013," said Lumenate President, Reagan Dixon.   

Further commenting on the merger, Jamie Shepard, executive vice president of ICI said, "This is about an expansion opportunity of two like-minded organizations that both possess a very unique business model that seems to be a step ahead of the industry. By combining our two companies, we are able to deliver much broader expertise in infrastructure consulting, architecture and support to our national customer base - particularly around security, networking and collaboration.  We are especially excited about adding our process-focused innovation with respect to healthcare solutions to the Texas healthcare market.  Lumenate has an excellent history of growth and customer success in providing their customers with infrastructure evolution and best practices, and ICI is a perfect complement to the expanding datacenter requirements and what that entails. Customers and competitors are going to notice."   

This marks the third successfully completed transaction for Lumenate in 2012, including: ANI Direct; an award-winning corporate IT security specialist, Troubadour; a highly skilled network and security practice and International Computerware; an innovative, datacenter solutions provider. Lumenate's revenues are expected to approach $175 million in 2013.

Increasingly, organizations rely on their IT infrastructure to be flexible, scalable, reliable, secure and cost-effective.  Lumenate is committed to helping clients accelerate and redefine the adoption of converged infrastructure and flexible computing models that increase efficiency and security while dramatically reducing cost and time to market.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
