Sigma Solutions Announces Acquisition of SSV Division of Laurus Technologies

Sigma Solutions has announced the acquisition of the Server/Storage/Virtualization Division of Laurus Technologies, based in Chicago, Il. This is Sigma's second acquisition in the Midwest in the last six months. The acquisition will combine the Laurus SSV Division with Sigma's earlier purchase of the Midwest assets of Artemis Technology, thus expanding Sigma's footprint in this marketplace. Sigma Solutions is a respected enterprise-wide computing solutions provider, based in San Antonio, Texas.

"We have been making acquisitions to help accelerate Sigma's growth while executing our strategies in the broader geographic, enterprise IT market," stated Dave Miller, CEO of Sigma Solutions. "We are particularly excited about the Laurus acquisition, as it not only expands our presence in the Midwest, but it also allows Sigma's broad portfolio of solution offerings centered around private cloud, mobility, data center and managed services to reach Laurus' large, established customer base."

"We're thrilled to have the SSV Division join the Sigma family and its vendor-independent approach to technology," added John Udelhofen, Laurus Chairman and CEO. "Sigma is well known for their customer-centric approach, which I believe will greatly benefit our customers--Sigma understands what our customers care about and need the most from their IT solutions."

Teaming Agreement with Oracle, SAP, and Microsoft SharePoint

The acquisition of Laurus' SSV Division brings together two established and respected names in the IT-solutions provider industry. Complementing the acquisition, Sigma Solutions and Laurus Technologies have also structured a teaming agreement for Oracle, SAP, and Microsoft SharePoint opportunities. Sigma will work closely with the Laurus Business Application team to size and configure infrastructure solutions needed to support these enterprise applications. Sigma's Professional Services expertise will now comprehensively engage and support a wide set of enterprise IT solutions.
