CDW to Broaden IT Solutions Capabilities for Government with Sirius Acquisition
CDW has acquired Sirius Computer Solutions, one of the largest U.S. IT solutions integrators, in a deal that is expected to accelerate and enhance its capabilities in a wide range of areas, including hybrid infrastructure, security, digital and data innovation, and cloud and managed services.
Sirius’ capabilities include helping counties deploy converged infrastructure to provide seamless data and application transparency across two data centers. Sirius has also helped implement financial process automation tools to help a state save millions of dollars automating all accounts-payable operations into a shared process across 57 different state agencies.
