In August, Integral-Axon was named to the 2010 President’s Club for Microsoft Dynamics, and was recognised for its high performance and committed effort. Integral-Axon was also awarded the Unified Communications Solution of the Year at the annual New Zealand Microsoft Partner Awards in 2010.
The company, formed in May this year by the purchase of Axon by Integral for approximately NZ$18 million, was purchased in October for an undisclosed figure by Datacraft. The company will grow from approximately 350 employees to nearly 600 as a result of the buyout and Robin Hartendorp, managing director of Datacraft, told media that no staff will be displaced.
Datacraft will manage the transition. IDC says the deal represents another step in the consolidation of New Zealand’s IT services market as providers expand on skill set and scale.
Integral-Axon and Datacraft, will continue to focus on cloud services for clients.
The consolidation, however, continues as global telecommunications service provider NTT is in the process of unconditionally acquiring Datacom’s parent company Dimension Data for approximately GBP 2.1 billion.
